VISIT RENEGADE TEA ESTATE
NB! Due to COVID-related travel restrictions, the majority of our team is not in Georgia and therefore we are not able to make regular tours. You can still let us know if you are interested to come, if we happen to have a production free week, then we can show you around :)
Come and visit us in Georgia! We'll give you a tour around Renegade Tea Estate plantations and our small tea factory! We will tell you about the history of Georgian tea, how tea is made, how it is like to live in Georgia or whatever other topics that interest you.
We are located near the city of Kutaisi - ca 20 minute drive from the city centre. You can find the exact location here. We do regular guided tours during the harvest period, which lasts from 15th of April until 15th of October and there are few options to choose from:
1. Regular tours
For individual travelers we provide guided group tours every Monday and Wednesday at 10:00 and every Friday and Saturday at 16:00. The tour begins with a walk in the plantation followed with a visit to the factory and finishes with a tea-tasting to give you an idea about our teas. The whole visit takes ca 1,5-2 hours.
The price for the tour is 40 GEL (about 12 EUR/14USD) per person and includes a package of tea! Children up to 15 (incl.) are for free. For booking please write to us on firstname.lastname@example.org or via Facebook.
2. Private tours
If you are coming with a group of 8 or more people, we can make a private tour just for your group. Dependant on your group needs we can also organize lunch or dinner at a local village or include other sightseeings that are nearby.
Please write to us on email@example.com or via Facebook, so we could find a suitable time that works for both of us.
If walk-around in the plantation and factory doesn't go far enough and you want to get down into the secrets of tea processing, you can register yourself for one of our tea making workshops. The course is done in small groups and lasts for 3 days. You will see the whole process from the moment the leaves are plucked until they get to the bag. And by the end of the 3-day workshop, you will leave with a tea that you have made yourself!
If your trip to Georgia falls into the off-season period but you would still like to visit us, don't give up just yet. Let us know about your travel dates (firstname.lastname@example.org or via Facebook) and maybe one of us is in Kutaisi and could make a tour for you. We are often in Georgia also during the winter months, as we prepare the plantations for the next season. Just write us via Facebook or send an email. We really enjoy welcoming people in our Estate, so if we can we will show you around!
See you soon :)
