Small Figure Of A Plucker In The Vast Tea Field

Plucker working in tea field

The slope was filled with the tea trees

Shot at Sungai Palas Tea Estate, one of the BOH tea plantations located in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia.

This tea field stretched on a hilly country. Every slope was occupied by tea trees. I wondered how many cups of tea could be made by these trees. Anyway, many cups of tea were produced here.

Stopping in the middle of the path in the field, I found a small figure of a plucker who was wearing a basket on his back was just working on a slope. The picking tea leaves was a manual-handling task. The plantation was a labor-intensive business.
