TeaHaus

The Southeast Asia nation of Indonesia includes thousands of islands—including Java and Sumatra—with rich, volcanic soil. In the tea gardens on Java and Sumatra, tea is harvested year round; most is processed with conventional methods and used in blends for bulk markets.

Exceptions include Sumatra Barison, a high-quality oolong that is comparable to the best green oolongs from Taiwan, and Hong Cha Java, a Sukui clone specialty that is grown and produced, using traditional Chinese methods, on a private tea garden in Sukabumi in western Java. Both are available at TeaHaus.
