Welcome To The Home Of BOH
Malaysia is one of the most vibrant and alluring parts of S.E.Asia. It is well-known for its fascinating fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous cultures all living in harmony, courtesy of a shared trading history and rich heritage. This diversity translates into an amazing culinary experience for anyone lucky enough to visit. Malaysia is also famous for its splendid beaches, tropical rainforests and of course the lush landscapes of Cameron Highlands, the home of BOH and where 70% of all tea in Malaysia is produced.
For decades, Cameron Highlands has attracted visitors to its cool jungles, quaint Tudor-style houses, fresh vegetables and fragrant teas. Cameron Highlands is one of the country’s most fertile agricultural spots, possessing all the right attributes for growing outstanding tea, and is situated over 5,000 feet above sea level on the main mountain range of Malaysia. The true character of BOH tea is greatly influenced by the conditions at the tea estates; namely high altitude, low temperatures, abundant rainfall and acidic soil. With amazing landscapes and stunning panoramic views, the plantations are truly picturesque.
