High expectations however surprised with poor quality of food and tea. Did not imagine that they used 3 in 1 sachet to serve their quest. Unfortunately price is high and quality is bad, pretty sad place

The best place to visit during summer, it’s cold up there. If you want to free your mind and relax yourself better to visit this place and have some refreshing tea. Definitely come again I had so much fun.

This place is a must go every time we return to Cameron Highlands. I absolutely love BOH Sungei Palas Tea Centre. Dine-in here for a mesmerizing view across the rolling hills and valleys of green as far as the eyes could see. The food is good and enjoying hot tea in the cool of the hill is an absolute bliss. Definitely worth the short hike uphill on the walkway. Will always come back here again, and again, and again. And I love to browse for some of their more limited edition teas at the shop there. There's also a brief guided-tour on their tea leaf processing at the back, which is free of charge. They bring visitors into a small part of the factory to have a look at the different stages of tea leaf processing. A very good place to visit!

If you go during public holiday, it is quite crowded. So, it takes a lot of time to go there and order something at the Tea Centre (because of COVID SOPs). Beyond that there is nothing much to do. Only the tea shop is open. The factory visit is not available because of COVID. It will take you a good 1.5 hours to go up to the center, order tea, eatables and then finish and come back. I feel this is not worth it. We were a part of an Airbnb tour with a tour guide by the name of Sathur. He runs a tour company by the name of Cameron Secrets (available on TA). The tour included 2 stops - Boh Tea Center and Mossy Forest. We found the Mossy Forest better than the Boh Tea Center. But, more than the tour stops, what was amazing about the tour was the tour guide himself - Sathur. His tour is a 5 hours tour in the morning which starts at 8 am to beat the traffic. And he does the tour on a rocking 35 year old manual gearbox Range Rover SUV. On top of that, the passion and knowledge that Sathur shares with his customers, is invaluable. So, I would urge you to check out his tours on Cameron Secrets (on TA). Ok, like most of my reviews, here are pointers which might be valuable for you: - Cameron Highlands is notorious for traffic jams during public holidays which I have experienced myself. Now I also hear that during week days also it is quite bad. So, the road going to Boh Tea Center is narrow and hilly. So, there can be huge traffic jams. Out tour guide Sathur told us that sometimes you might get stuck at a point for an hour where you have to switch off the engine and wait as you cannot overtake or move forward on the narrow hilly roads. He took us to the Boh Tea Center around 9 am and we did not have any traffic jams. For that he started the tour at 8 am. Therefore, I would recommend that if you do not want to waste time, you will need to go early in the morning. From 10 am on wards, it can be really bad. - When driving there, you can go to a point where there is a parking. You cannot take your vehicle beyond that point. From that point the Boh Tea Estate people have their own shuttle buses which take you from this parking point up to the Boh Tea Center. This is just a 5 minutes bus ride. The shuttle bus is easily available at a frequency of almost every 10 minutes. We also saw lot of people walking to the Tea Center instead of taking the bus. You can either walk on the road or you can take a specially made staircase from the parking area to the center. By the way, there is NO concept of social distancing on this shuttle bus. They allow not only every seat to be occupied, but they also take people standing if all the seats are full. So, if you are not happy with this, then you should walk. But, one good thing is that the bus has a lady near the door with a sanitizer. - Once you reach the Tea Center, you have to undergo the mandatory QR code registration + temperature check. I have to say this. At the tea center the COVID SOPs are strictly followed. In fact, out of all the tourist places and many other public places like malls, etc. in KL (we live in KL), I have to say that the Boh Tea Centre strictly follows all SOPs. So, kudos to them. Even when you stand in the queue strict social distancing protocol is followed. - Because of the SOPs, the queue to go into the restaurant is very long and we had to stand in the queue for good 20 minutes. And remember we were the early ones to reach at 9 am. I wonder what the scene will be during the day. So, to enter the tea centre, order your food, drinks, take them to your designated seating, finish eating, visiting the washroom and then taking the shuttle bus back, will easily take you 1.5 hours. So, please decide whether you want to go for this. There are various options. One option is that you don't go to the tea center, but go up to the parking area and then use the stairs to go up a bit up to the area of the tea center and click photographs, spend some time roaming around and then come back. This means you actually do not enter the Tea Center to eat and drink. This will save your time considerably. And that way you get to see the lovely tea garden on hill slopes and you can click some nice photographs. But, we did not have an option because we had planned to have breakfast there and therefore went into the center. The other option is not to go to the Tea Center at all, but just drive on the road leading to the Tea Center and stop at many of the viewing points. - The food and drinks options are very nice in the Tea Center. Specially the firecracker sausage. Then there are many many tea options like strawberry tea, etc. Please note that there is no coffee available for those hardcore coffee lovers. Then there are cupcakes and pastries. The range is very good and quite reasonable. You can pay by card and cash. It is self service. The food is given at the payment counter itself. Then you need to carry the trays and find a table. At the end of it, we were quite satisfied in spite of having to stand in the queue for 20 minutes. - The Tea Center is designed beautifully with glass walls all around which give you a lovely view of the tea estate rolling across the hills. So, you will have lots of urges to click photographs. - There is a huge rush at the Tea Center. So, much so that getting a table can be a little difficult. But, manageable. - There are well appointed washrooms at 2 levels - ground floor and first floor. - There is a tea shop also, though we did not go inside it as we wanted to finish and move out fast as we still had to go and visit the Mossy Forest and there was already traffic building up on the narrow hilly roads of Cameron Highlands. - Supposedly there used to be a factory visit too to see how tea is made but now closed due to COVID. That's a shame as it would be very nice for children to see how tea is made. - On the way to the Tea Center there are various view points where you can stop and click lovely photographs of the tea estate on the hilly slopes. Every direction is beautiful with the never ending tea estate. - We also learned that the real tea tree can grow up to be a normal size tree, 2-3 meters, but for the tea estate, the tea trees are maintained as bonsai. That means at a level not extending beyond 1 meter so that they can do the plucking conveniently. We could see the actual grown up tea trees all around the road leading to the Boh Tea Center. Overall, an average experience because of the crowd, the traffic and the time it takes to visit the tea center. Not worth it for a cup of tea! I would rather just go to a nice view point at the side of the road, click few photographs, have a packed meal and drink and come back.
