A Tea Story

Tea was first grown in Cameron Highlands in 1929 after it was discovered that the business could grow well in highlands.

Tea picker normally begin their work well before sunrise, plucking only the tender leaves of the tree bushes. The leaves are then weighed at the hills before being transported to the factory for the processing.

At the factory moisture is reduce in a process known as withering that stimulates the natural chemical reactions, a vital process to extract the tea's favor. The leaves are then milled by rotovans, setting the juices ready for the fermentation.

In recent years, the highland tea has been exotically flavored with oils, flowers, herbs and essences.
