About South Sumatra, Indonesia

South Sumatra is a province of Indonesia, located towards the southeast end of the island, but it is not the southernmost province on the island. It is a relatively large province and stretches from the northeast coast, inland almost the whole way to the southwest coast, leaving only a narrow strip for Bengkulu province to the Southwest, separated by the Barisan Mountains.

Tea is grown in South Sumatra close to this border, in the highland areas near these mountains. Tea from the Gunung Dempo estate (Gunung meaning mountain), pictured here, is grown in the area around Mount Dempo, the highest stratovolcano on the island. This tea is sometimes available from various retailers.
