So much better than you think a tea tour could be
We went here a couple of years ago, we loved it!
I confess I was sceptical, having just spent a week at a fabulous beach resort on an equally fabulous island we had a drive across the centre of Borneo to get to then spend a week in the rain forest. To break the journey up we planned a one night stop at the tea plantation. It was not the bit of the holiday I was most looking forward to!!!
When we arrived we were shown into a cottage, basic, but clean and totally suitable for a one night stop. There is a small bar you can sit at and have a beer and the views are just awesome.
The following morning was a tour of the factory which was fascinating, honestly, who knew tea production could be an interesting subject, but it really was. The guy who gave the tour was funny and informative and the tea, well, if you like tea (and you really should if you visit a tea plantation) then there is none finer. I have a tiny bit left now and I really, really want to get some more. Not so easy from the UK!
The food is OK, it is honest and tasty, people who want something fancy should either grow up or go somewhere else.
The monument to the soldiers is a bit heartbreaking, but please do go and see it, they deserve our respect and thoughts.
All in all I would recommend a stop here to anyone, don't expect fancy rather enjoy what you do get, I went thinking it would be dull and left having truly enjoyed the experience.
