The Story of Chá Camélia

It was my first trip after arriving at my new home in Portugal, in September 2019. The trip led me to Fornelo, a small village between Braga and Porto, near the ocean. An event called ‘Festa do Chá’ had triggered my attention. It was a celebration of the first harvest of the flowers of the Camellia Sinensis at a place called Chá Camélia. For me it was the first time ever I saw tea plants and a tea plantation in real life, so my curiosity was pretty intense.
