Thanks for the wonderful invitation, I recently went to BOH’s Sungei Palas Tea Centre at Cameron Highland for the launching of their brand new wing called Tristan’s Terrace, in honour of BOH’s Chairman who served from August 1966 – July 2019. Yang Berhormat Tuan Muhammad Bakhtiar bin Wan Chik, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Malaysia was also at the event to officially launch the ceremony.

Caroline Russell, Executive Chairman of BOH Plantations said, “Today is a significant milestone as we celebrate the opening of Tristan’s Terrace at the Sungei Palas Tea Centre, as well as BOH’s 90th Anniversary which is themed 90 Years of Ummph!

Designed to integrate with the natural highland landscape, the Sungei Palas Tea Centre, which built in 2007 as a one-stop Tea Centre with a contemporary architectural style, includes a 20-foot overhanging balcony as a viewing deck now called J.A.’s Balcony.

The concept for the new wing is akin to a terraced walkway overlooking a garden that has been carefully laid out to offer best vantage views. Tucked away at the end of the wing is an exclusive meeting room suited for small events, with framed views of the tea garden as an inspiring backdrop. The place also have a tea tasting room for visitors to gain a deeper sense of tea appreciation. All in all, it’s a comprehensive induction to all things tea and a feast for the eyes with spectacular panorama.

The Tristan’s Terrace has further 200 seating capacity to host visitors more comfortably, both from within Malaysia as well as from overseas. There is a 6-foot diameter solid brass rolling table to welcome guests to the new wing, which was once used in the BOH Sungei Palas tea factory to crush the tea leaves – an important stage in the manufacture of tea.

“The Tea Centre aims to provide visitors a sensorial and leisurely experience of BOH; from an understanding of the brand legacy and milestones to the intricacies of tea cultivation, tea processing and facts about tea. Thousands of visitors have since walked through our Tea Centre and have thoroughly enjoyed the captivating panoramic views of the plantation while enjoying a delicious cup of BOH tea,” shared Russell.

Russell also shared about BOH’s partnership with the Tropical Rainforest Conservation and Research Centre (TRCRC) which aims to grow and develop conservation initiatives in Cameron Highlands and support long-term forest preservation, restoration and biodiversity. The collaboration will also cover forest restoration at TRCRC’s Tropical Living Collection (TRLC) in Banun, Perak, where BOH will sponsor the planting of 200 trees to help restore key forest corridors within the Central Forest Spine.

After the launching ceremony, we were ushered to visit the BOH’s Sungei Palas Tea Centre that offers an interesting insight into Malaysia’s tea cultivation. This is a rolling machine that was designed to imitate the action of hand-rolling the leaves to draw out the taste, and was first used in the 1900s.

BOH made Cameron Highlands its home 90 years ago when J.A. Russell established the country’s first tea garden in Cameron Highlands in 1929. Now with the new expansion, BOH is poised to play an even bigger role in eco-tourism in Cameron Highlands and support tourism efforts championed by the government and the local authorities.

    one of the highlights of a trip to the Cameron Highlands is the chance to visit Boh Tea Plantation where you can enjoy the lush green terraces and learn how the tea is harvested and grown.
    The vistas across the plantation here are simply stunning and this is one of the best places to check out the scenery that the Cameron Highlands is so famous for. Thumb up for this best place! My family had a great time there

    Cameron Highlands is a great place for family and friends to have relaxing holiday especially at this BOH’s Sungei Palas Tea Centre. I can have a cup of freshly brewed hot BOH tea with its special aroma, pair with some biscuits or breads, enjoy it in the cosy atmosphere and nice scenery of green terrace. It’s a must-have relaxing activity when going to Cameron Highlands, to learn, experience and enjoy the holiday!
