Boh Sungei Palas Tea Estate information
If there's time for only one tea-themed experience in the highlands, make it this spectacularly situated plantation, museum and cafe. A short film explains the estate's history and free 15-minute tours (half-hourly) demonstrate the tea-making process. The glass-fronted cafe overhangs the tea-clad hills – it's a battle for a good seat on the terrace – and every imaginable flavour of tea is offered in the gift shop. Spare some time to dawdle on the walkways around the plantation.
Greenhouse-like Boh Café is arguably the highlight of a visit. Opt for fresh, loose-leaf tea and one of the inventive desserts (such as salted egg and pineapple cheesecake or green-tea tiramisu).
The estate lies in the hills north of Brinchang, off the road to Gunung Brinchang. Buses running between Tanah Rata and Kampung Raja pass the turn-off to Gunung Brinchang. From there it’s 4km along the winding road to the plantation entrance, past worker housing and a Hindu temple (tea pickers are predominantly Indian), then another 15 minutes’ walk downhill to the visitors centre. Alternatively a taxi from Tanah Rata costs RM30 one way.
