The island of Java, for example, is one of the leading tea producing areas in Indonesia. A first attempt by the Dutch at the end of the 18th century failed, although a second project in the early 19th century succeeded.
Plants were imported from Assam and successfully harvested. Although the quality of some plantations may be debatable, there are still some major plantations left such as Taloon, Malabar and Cisaruni, with particularly aromatic black teas.
There have been tea plantations in the Americas, for example in Brazil and Argentina since the mid-1950’s and in Oceania. They are, however, peripheral.
