Indonesia is one of the world’s largest tea producing countries, with huge tea cultivation areas. The main areas for tea production are West Java, (which accounts for nearly 70% of Indonesia’s national tea production), Central Java, and North Sumatra.
These large plantations are usually run by state-owned enterprises, with a majority of production being CTC (crushing, tearing, curling) tea. Indonesian tea is especially fullbodied, well-regarded, and often used in blends. Local Indonesians normally serve their tea in a clay teapot with a set of small complementary clay cups and saucers. Rock sugar is served alongside.
Indonesia produces a wide variety of teas including organic delicate silver needle,oolong ,jasmine tea and vibrant imperial black tea.
