The best tea in Jakarta is undoubtedly ‘teh tawar‘, hot or cold, served in the modest restaurants on the street sides of the city. But if you are looking for a more sophisticated experience, Jakarta also provides you many choices of elegant tearooms, spread across the city. After all, we love our tea as much as we love our coffee. Here are our recommendations for you:
