BOH produces over 4 million kgs of tea annually. That’s 5.5 million cups daily!
Behind every cup of BOH is a fine-tuned process with meticulous attention to quality. BOH uses a combination of traditional and modern methods to harvest and produce authentic Malaysian teas of distinctive character, flavour and aroma. The quality of tea depends on the inherent characteristics of the leaf brought into the factory, which in turn depend on:
a) Climate and soil of the particular estate
b) The quality characteristics of the jats or clones of tea grown on the estate,
c) The standard of plucking, i.e. whether the leaf is fine or coarse.
It’s impossible to make good quality tea out of a poor quality leaf. However, the method of processing, skill and care employed in the factory contribute greatly.
The basic process from start to finish usually takes two days to complete, but before the dried tea is packed and dispatched for sale, it needs to be matured for a short period.
