Sg Palas Boh Plantation
in Brinchang is one of the three tea plantations in Cameron Highlands
run by the Boh Tea Plantations. Altogether, the Boh Tea Plantation has a total of 8000 acres planted with tea. Its other plantations are at In addition to Boh, another major tea plantation in Cameron Highlands is the Bharat Tea Plantation near Ringlet.
A country lane winds its way through the Sg Palas Boh Plantation in Cameron Highlands.
The Boh Tea Plantations were started by John Archibald Russell, the son of a government official, in 1929. He partnered with A.B. Milne, an old tea planter from Sri Lanka, where tea is grown extensively in places such as Nuwara Eliya
. With a concession of land from the government, the planters created the first highland tea garden
in the then Malaya.
Today Boh owns four tea gardens in the country, namely Boh, Sg Palas and Fairlie in Cameron Highlands, and Bukit Cheeding in Selangor. The Boh company produces 4 million kgs of tea annually, equivalent to 5.5 million cups per day. They garner the lion share of the tea produced in Malaysia, which is 70% of all production.
I always enjoyed the old-style Boh tea kiosk before it became the new Sg Palas Tea Centre. The new facility is certainly much bigger. Moreover, it has great views of the surrounding tea plantations, and can accommodate more visitors. However it lacks the cosiness of the old Tea Kiosk, where you can warm up in a corner enjoying your favourite cup of tea with hot scones.
Sg Palas Boh Tea Centre
The Sg Palas Tea Centre is a recently expanded tea kiosk of the Boh Plantations. It is home to the Tea'ria souvenir shop and tea shop. Here, visitors are given free guided factory tours every thirty minutes. One may also savour the various types of tea produced by the Boh Plantations. The Sg Palas Tea Centre is open everyday except Monday, from 9:00am to 4:30pm. Admission is free. Factory tours are provided approximately every 30 minutes.

Exploring Malaysia with GPS
The GPS is the most wonderful instrument for exploring Malaysia. On places described on this website will include GPS coordinates. You simply need to key the coordinates into your GPS device, and it will navigate you to the intended destination. GPS can be purchased from shops in most shopping malls in Malaysia, and alternatively, you can also shop for them via Amazon online. Here are some models which I found on Amazon.
