Cameron Highlands Part 7: Cameron Valley Tea House

CV tea shop

Since Boh Tea Centre in Sg Palas was closed, we decided to check out this Cameron Valley Tea House owned by Cameron Bharat Plantation. Must be new since we never came across this when we last came here errr 2 or 3 years ago. We saw this place on our way up from Simpang Pulai. Just drive towards Kg Raja from Brinchang and you won't miss this place on the right of the road with some signages along the way. We have been to their other Bharat Tea House located along the road leading to Tanah Rata from Ringlet in our previous trip before Simpang Pulai was opened. The view over there is more breath taking.

It's great that they built this tea house next to the tea plantation and allowed visitors to go into the plantation. My boiboi raced up the steep slope with his daddy with mummy trailing behind cos she was busy taking pictures. If you squint hard enough, you can see both of them here...

After all the climbing, it's customary to have some tea at a tea house... we had a pot of chai masala (doesn't come cheap!) which impart a lovely aroma. However, it has rough bits in the tea which I suspected they were using some kind of grinded or powdered spices. My answer came when I visited the tea shop. On sale were bottles of powdered chai masala mix which you could add on to your tea. Why buy when you can make your own? Hubby had a piece of fruit cake which boiboi downed more than 1/2 hahaha poor daddy. I was surprised boiboi actually ate them up since he dislikes raisins! No pics of the tea or cake as I was busy chasing away flies. Duh!
