Product Overview
Bali is ablaze in colour. From the colourful washes of batik fabric to bright jungle flowers to the colourful sounds of a traditional gamelan orchestra, the sights and sounds of Bali wash over the senses like a rainbow. 

The Indonesian island has delighted visitors for centuries. While it has been inhabited by native islanders since time immemorial, first European contact with Bali is believed to have been made by a Dutchman named Cornelis de Houtman in 1597. This visit would also yield the first encounter a European would have with the fruits of the island. On February 26 of that year, de Houtman, after much haggling with the local monarch, managed to secure a few pots of peppercorns to take with him back to Amsterdam.

For most of the island's history, the prime economic engine has been agriculture. If you've ever been there, you'll know why—Bali is exceptionally lush. Rainfall is abundant as is sunshine and excellent soil. Tea is grown in certain parts of the island along with rice, coffee and fruit. During the 1930s, however, tourists began appearing on Balinese shores, lured by fables of beauty and the testimony of a group of anthropologists and artists who crafted a romantic image of Bali as "an enchanted land of aesthetes at peace with themselves and nature."

This tea blend commemorates the island and her people, and is inspired by the innumerable varieties of flowers that bloom everywhere on Bali. The tea began as a luxury jasmine green tea, and added to that was cornflower, safflower, osmanthus, calendula and sunflower petals, which creates a heavenly mixture of sweet floral notes and grassy undertones your taste buds will never forget. It's a fabulous blend befitting the island that gives it its name!
