Ciwalini Tea Plantation

6

Going 35 kilometer south, straight from Bandung to Ciwalini Tea Plantation. At the foot of Mount Patuha, 2400 meter above the sea level, cool weather, lovely scenery, and free tea.

It takes a two-hour ride from where I lived in Bandung to a small village called Ciwidey, where the tea plantation is located. The roads is smooth, passing through the hills surrounded by rice fields. On the way, there’s a lot of small strawberry farm where we can pick the fruit by ourselves. The air is cool and fresh, perfect for people who needs fast refreshment from the urban life. It doesn’t take too long from Ciwidey until I saw the entrance gate to Ciwalini.

I stop awhile viewing the landscape before I go in to. The denseness of tea bushes surrounding Ciwalini makes the place feels completely interesting. The black tea that’s planted here have a distinguished taste and aroma. They give you sachets of tea when you first enter. Here, the visitor can see the process of making tea. From picking to packing it. You can also rent a small hut or tent to enjoy the view or eat traditional food like bajigur, bandrek, and roast corn while seeing how fast the worker pick the tea. This unfold richness of vegetation really soothes the eye.
