I love old buildings as much as I love great food, especially "haunted" old buildings. I've always wondered how my tea was made.Thank you for sharing this with us, love it :)


As a tea conoisseur, I really enjoyed reading this article and the photographs are quite stunning...


Beautiful pics and write-up! I do enjoy kumis kucing 'tea' leaves for around that area esp. Bogor.


I'm not generally a tea-drinker either, but I do find tea an interesting subject. That seems like a great way to learn about its production, at least. And as a note-- I love the design on that box, from the mod pattern behind the label, to the steaming cup on the side. -X


It's 2 hours drive from my town, Jakarta. I was a bit confused on your miss-spelling. If I may ; puncuk and maleber, should be puncak and malabar. Great story to share and excellent photos.

Hoping that your Learning Farm program could also save our heritage.

hey robyn,

can we have a blog on coffee in southeast asia? there's an old tradition in indonesia right, java coffee and all that? i'm sure the tradition is filled with stories of colonial repression and abuse (ooh. i'm in "development" mode....)

dave's pictures - as expected - capture the mood just right.



Black Orange Pekoe is my favourite tea, this looks really good! Thanks for an interesting article!


I love to drink tea. But I never drink any old tea.
