Scenic Sunday - Tea Plantation

Care for a cuppa?
This is the BOH Tea plantation in the Cameron Highlands - the largest black tea manufacturer in Malaysia. They have four planatations, Boh, Sungei Palas and Fairlie in the CH and Bukit Cheeding in Selangor. This is Sungei Palas. BOH was founded by J.A. Russel in 1929. He was a British businessman during the British colonial era in Malaya. Today, BOH produces 4,000,000 kgs of tea a year - approx 70% of tea produced in Malaysia.


Todays Quote: There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea - Bernard-Paul Heroux.

It must be one of the few industries that can look scenic. So green and pretty.

Did you enjoy Malaysia?
