About Central Java, Indonesia

Central Java is a province on the island of Java, Indonesia, and is one of the three major tea-producing regions in the country. The region is bordered to the west by West Java, and there is also a special region, Yogyakarta, cut out of the southeast of the province, along the southern coast.

The province contains both mountains and lowland areas, and the volcanic soil is particularly fertile for farming; the area is a major producer of rice.

Although Central Java produces a large volume of tea, the tea is primarily used in blending and single-origin teas from here are not widely available in the West.
