Indonesian Tea -- where to buy?

On a ship trading out in the Far East, due to come home to NYC next week. One of my oilers, an Indonesian guy, has this tea onboard which is outstanding. It comes in little paper pouches the size of a small matchbox. I've scanned the wrapper, hopefully attached the pic correctly.

Know where I can buy this in NYC?

  1. Sorry I don't know where they sell that tea in Manhattan, but I believe Java Restaurant on 16th st and 7ave in BK just past park slope has it. You can ask them where to buy it. That's the best i can do as far as advice

        Not quite there, sorry. Why did you have to mention TopLine which is better known for its Makam Wan (a variety of tamarind) than its tea? I searched the shelves twice. Was I too late? :-)

          Sorry, I never said they had it, just figured if anyone had it in NYC, they would. That's where all my Indonesian friends shop.

        1. I have a lot of this tea. But I'm living in Jakarta.
