This tea is grown in the highlands south of Medan, Sumatra’s capital. Gunung Dempo, the excellent black tea offered here falls into this category. The tea gets its name from a volcano that stretches 3173 meters above its tropicalsurroundings and has a large bearing on climactic conditions in the region. The nutrient rich volcanic soil of the area combined with intense tropical heat and humidity produces teas with a delicate floral aroma and round body with hints of malt and faint touches of tropical sweetness on the finish. Produced by a reputable garden with a long track record of fair working conditions, Gunung Dempo is one of the world’s great teas.
