BOH Tea Plantation

No trip to Cameron Highlands is complete without a trip to the famous tea plantations. This is one of the main attraction that you have to put into your “must see" list. From there you can visit the factories to learn about the tea making process or you can also pamper yourself with a cup of tea at the café while enjoying the view overlooking the plantations.

BOH Plantations Sdn Bhd is the leading tea grower in Malaysia with four tea gardens – Boh, Sungei Palas and Fairlie situated in Cameron Highlands; and Bukit Cheeding in Selangor – constituting a total land area of 1200 hectares.

The road journey to the BOH Tea Plantation is quite an adventure as the road is narrow and winding. Our experience bus driver will give a honk or two while negotiating a corner to let oncoming traffic know there is coming vehicle. Apart from the narrow roads towards the plantation, the view of green rolling hills with neat standard rows of tea plants are truly breathtaking and refreshing.

BOH’s operations are mechanised while application of fertilisers is carried out aerially and harvesting is done by hand-held machines or raised tractor harvesters. Each of BOH’s tea gardens has its own processing facility and the Fairlie tea garden utilises some of the most modern machines in the world.

With a production capacity approaching 3000kgs per hectare, the Company produces 4 million kgs of tea annually which translates to about 5.5 million cups per day. Hence, with the high altitude, low temperatures and slightly acidic soil, Cameron Highlands is the ideal environment for growing superb teas of distinctive flavour and aroma.

There is a full length glass view café located near the entrance of the BOH Tea Plantation whereby you can grab a cup of tea with a slice of cake or snack while enjoying the magnificent view of the tea plantation. I am thankful that this trip we are able to explore this tea plantation to witness such a great view and enjoy the refreshing aroma of the tea leaves around the mountain. Posted by Picasa
