Find a nice brew on Mauritius holidays

While China may be the first country that springs to mind when you think of tea, perhaps Mauritius deserves a mention too.

Anyone who loves a good brew can take part in various tours on the island that celebrate its tea-growing heritage, based at the Movenpick spa resort.

The day-long Tea Route tour takes tourists on a tour of Mauritius, leading them through the history of the tea trade, as well as letting them see first-hand how the drink gets to our mugs at a traditional tea factory in Bois-Ceri.

In addition, there is a tea museum, where you can taste a variety of different types of the drink, perhaps choosing some as a treat for loved ones back home.

For those who aren’t such big fans of the drink, Mauritius is also home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, as well as the sacred lake, which is housed inside the crater of a thankfully extinct volcano.

Bel Ombre, which is located on the south-west coast of the island, is the resort where much of the tea-related activities take place.

Maurutius is part of the Mascarene Islands and has Reunion Island to its south-west and Rodrigues to the north-east.

It is also famous for being the only known home of the dodo, which is Portuguese for ‘simpleton’.
