Mauritius 2013 – Day3 (part2)

After our detour at the shippie shop our next port of call was the tea plantation.

With the rain still coming down in buckets (Patrick even had to engage 4×4 to get out of the parking lot-then again it is a Ford- 😜) we did our tea-tasting session at a very scenic spot. Unfortunately pictures could not be taken, but don’t despair we did go back another day to take some photos.

Part of the tour was a lunch that was at the rummery in another of the families homes. Fortunately we had some lunch before our rum tasting session.

After once again being captivated by the sheer splendour of these old houses we went for a sip of the different varieties of rum. Dont let the fact that it is made out of sugarcane give you the impression that it is even slightly sweet.

Also on the farm were vanilla and Anthurium nurseries. Our day came to a very satisfied end exploring lesser known parts of Mauritius.
