Cameron Highland's Tea Plucking Story

Last Sunday, while in Cameron Highlands, we visited the Bharat Tea Plantation which is 5 km from Tanah Rata.



This shot, postcard anot?? :D


It's really nice to get away from the city,
to be surrounded by greens and fresher air.



The building is actually Bharat Tea's Shop cum Tea House. Yes, they serve Tea & Scones! DYK that their Scone Set is RM12.00 for two scones with cream, butter & jam??? I had my scone at the famous
T-Cafe, Tanah Rata for RM2.30 per scone!!!


You must go to T-Cafe when you are in Cameron Highlands! There are a lotta good reviews about 'em. I don't know about their other food though... Oh, and they are closed on Sundays. So, last Saturday night, eventhough we were quite full after our steamboat dinner, we still went for dessert here...



Strawberry Cheesecake (I didn't quite like it) & Scone!


So, back to the tea plantation, as we walked down the slope, we spied this sign.



Okayyy... but but but... But Lil' Joy has made a special request for me to pluck some tea leaves for her. How could I disappoint her?? So, pluck I must... and pluck I did.



Just as I was plucking the tea leaves, suddenly, "BOOM"!!! Both me and my friend looked at one another. It had just started to drizzle a bit. She said, "A warning shot!" I thought, "Shucks... don't tell me there are some CCTVs nearby, but how can?! I didn't see any!"

After that, I went to another row of tea trees and started plucking more leaves. "BOOM" again!!! This time, I was a lil' bit scared. Dammit! Who's watching?! And the rain got a lil' bit heavier. So, we quickly made our way back to the car. Phewww...


No, it wasn't firecrackers! Well, I didn't think it was...


The tea leaves as of last night...
