As tea growing areas go, Indonesia is quite an underrated origin. This is surprising as, at nearly 200 years old, it's as well established as the tea estates in Sri Lanka and India. This tea that we're going to try is really wonderful.
It comes from the central part of Java - Indonesia's 4th largest island, and is grown in a very picturesque tea estate near the sea called Dewata. In local Indonesian language, Dewata means 'home of the gods and goddesses' - which perfectly suits the spiritual feel of the place, nestled high up in the rolling hills at a breathtaking 1000-1500m metres above sea level.
