Indonesia's Participation at the 2019 World Tea Expo Exhibition

Indonesia Trade Promotion Center (ITPC) in Los Angeles promotes premium products, herbal drinks and ready-to-drink teas at the 2019 World Tea Expo (WTE), Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, United States, on 11-13 June 2019. The exhibition was attended by 260 exhibitors (exporters and private companies) from 22 countries and attended by around thousands of buyers consisting distributors, retailers, tea shop owners, restaurant owners, and restaurant / food service suppliers.


Located at booth 901 which is the foremost area, ITPC Los Angeles promotes a variety of products from 7 companies, namely Harendong Tea Estate, PT Bukit Sari, PT Kepala Djenggot, Mustika Ratu, and Rowadu for specialty tea and herbal tea products; and Jans and Ladang Lima for snack products.The specialty teas featured are black tea, green tea, white tea and oolong. The herbal tea products include red ginger, red ginger plus turmeric, and soursop leaf tea. The majority of specialty teas and herbal teas that are promoted are organic and also have internationally recognized certificates.


Indonesian tea products have the potential to take advantage of the momentum of the US-China trade war. Head of ITPC Los Angeles, Antonius Budiman stated, "The momentum provides greater opportunities for tea producers throughout the world, including Indonesia, because Chinese green tea and black tea with packages under 3 kg will most likely be subject to a 25% tariff".
