Nestled in the Borneo rainforest and thriving from volcanic soil, Balung Plantation was established in 1979 and is spearheading a range of activities including the development of eco-tourism in Southeast Asia, sustainable commercial tree planting and the cultivation of organically grown crops.
The Balung plantation team strives to innovate in modern sustainable practices through the use of green energy by sourcing power from the plantation’s numerous very own hydro-dam, recycling bio waste for conversion into biogas and by fully utilizing discarded biomass to produce steam for our distillation plant. Our team is dedicated and constantly exploring new agricultural methods. We cultivate crops that promote health and strive to make a difference in people’s lives.
To preserve our stringent standards, all our teas are planted, processed and packed in our facilities. Our special teas offer a number of traditional health remedies and are a refreshing unique alternative to your normal cup of tea.
Balung Plantation has a rich history, starting with the planting of cocoa in 1979. Over the years, the plantation has diversified its crops, growing herbal teas, vanilla, asparagus, and raising cattle, alongside the traditional Borneo black pepper, coffee, exotic fruits, and more.
Today, we blend modern and traditional techniques to cultivate crops that promote health while contributing to the advancement of sustainable practices. Our facilities run on green energy and our waste is recycled into biogas. From planting to packing, every aspect of our operations is done in-house to uphold our stringent standards.
