After breakfast, our driver took us to the Tea Grower of Cameron Highlands – BoH Plantation. Cameron Highlands is the ideal environment for growing superb teas of distinctive flavour and aroma. Tea is very much like wine, its final character is largely influenced by the conditions in which it is grown. Hence, with its high altitude, low temperatures and slightly acidic soil, this place makes a perfect environment for Tea growing.

The weather is cooler here and we were greeted by turquoise blue sky surrounded by patches of green tea plantation as we travelled up to the factory.

At the Tea Factory, we were allowed to view the tea processing process. There are 7 stages of Tea making and they are all documented down as a “sign” board at the top wall along the Tea Factory.

After viewing the tea making process, we moved on for some photograph taking at their backyard.

There is another definitely must on the list of things to do in Cameron Highlands is a visit to Sungei Palas. Sungei Palas is home of BOH’s newly built Tea Centre which features an exhibition hall, a souvenir and tea shop and the Tea’ria.

Love their interior. It looks very classic to me.

In this souvenir shop, we found many many difference types of tea again! But this time, they are much more innovative.

And Yvette tried some of their tea but I can’t remember which type of tea she had tried. Verdict? She absolutely loving it!

Although Yvette seemed to like the Mr. BOH but after we repeating asking her many times and we got inconsistency answer from her, we decided to give it a miss. We did get the story book and the colouring book for her.

After we were done with our shopping, we headed for another session of photo-taking again. (How can we not take more pictures with such nice scenery?)
