Reaping the bounty of agar trees

The Gaharu Tea Valley in Gopeng took a total of RM40mil to set up and has a current workforce of 100. On weekends, 2,000 visitors contribute to a rough estimate of RM100,000 in daily sales of tea, biscuits, instant noodles, miracle beauty powders, incense, perfume and oils — all harvested from the surrounding agar trees, standing some 200,000 strong in the 121ha (330 acres) plantation that needs about half a million ringgit a month to run.
