Cameron Valley Tea House, Cameron Highlands, Malaysia

By on August 24, 2015 in Malaysia

The Cameron Highlands is famous for a number of things (more on that later) and one of them is tea (I have been drinking Boh tea from the Highlands for the last two years and it makes a good cuppa – far better than that Lipton Yellow Label rubbish), and so I was looking forward to visiting some tea plantations and learning about the process.

The first planation I stopped at was the Cameron Valley Tea House (not Boh tea), which is located on the main just north of Tringkap (there are at least three Cameron Valley Tea Houses in the Cameron Highlands).

A pot of tea for two cost RM9 (£1.80 UK; $2.40 US), and it was good. Interestingly the tea was ‘pre-made’ in that there are no leaves (or bag) in the pot. My guess is that this was done so you are assured that you get the tea at its best (the tea will still stew though).

The teashop offered free wifi, and there is also a gift shop. I found it to be very pleasant to be drinking tea outside in the cool and refreshing air of the Highlands, whilst watching tea grow on the hillside.

I really liked the look of the tea plants. Very neat and organised.

So neat!

As far as I could tell the only tour of the plantation that was offered was on quad bikes or in a Land Rover.
