No, the East tour does not include the tea plantation. They just drive by it. It used to include the plantation but they changed for more time in the thermal baths I guess.

We visited the tea plantation and Miguel (our guide) gave us a tour/lesson on tea. BTW, you can buy packages of tea to bring home much cheaper at the local markets in Ponta Delgada

I agree with the other post. Use Pure Azores Tours they are fantastic. If they can't accommodate you hire a car and drive there yourself. It's not that far from Ponta Delgado
