Visiting Europe’s first commercial tea plantation in Portugal

A few weeks ago I was in Porto, and I joined fellow journalist Treve Ring to visit Europe’s first commercial tea plantation. It’s from Nina Gruntkowski and Dirk Niepoort, who have a tea import company called Cha Camelia, specialising in Japanese tea. Now they will be making their own tea from a quinta in the Minho in northern Portugal, near Porto. Treve will be writing an article on it for the World of Fine Wine. Here’s a short film of the visit.
