Black tea, Indonesia

The Bukit Sari tea garden sits at an altitude of 1150 – 1350m in a remote part of West Java, Indonesia. It is surrounded by conservation forest and has the Citambur Waterfall at its feet. Bukit Sari has been certified organic since 2007 and is committed to bio-diversity and sustainable farming. Its tea plants are replenished by natural mountain spring water and grown amongst companion plants of flowers and herbs which act as a natural bug repellent. Their Premium black tea is carefully harvested by hand then finely crafted to draw out its best characteristics. The leaves infuse into a brisk, medium-bodied tea with notes of malt, dark chocolate and maple syrup.
March 2020 harvest. Certified organic by USDA.
Preparation: Steep for 2 - 3 minutes at 98°. Three infusions.
Sizes: Bukit Sari Premium comes in four sizes: a 3 gram single serve, then 20g, 50g and 100g pouches. Our leaves can all be steeped at least twice (often more), so while the 3g pouch is a single serve (150 mls - a standard tea cup size), it will give you two cups if you steep the leaves twice.
