This is Sabah’s one and only organic tea plantation. A visit to Sabah Tea Garden in Ranau is a must!
Did you know an experienced tea picker can collect about 32 Kg of tea in a day, which is enough to make 14,000 cups of tea! How? Well, a wakid is used in the process.
Wakid is a bamboo basket that originates from the districts of Ranau and Tambunan in Sabah used by the native farmers to carry fruits, firewood, vegetables, and paddy stalks, whereas in this case, tea leaves!
