Since Taiwan is famous for their tea culture, our mission is to bring and introduce our world famous tea to Indonesia so that our customers can enjoy the unique taste and experience of Taiwan. The word Hoshino is taken from the family name of the third generation of Ten Ren’s Tea family tree. Ten Ren’s Tea has many different brands of café throughout the world. With dreams of bringing Ten Ren’s tea to every part of the world, we are now available in Indonesia as Hoshino Tea Time, operated by Ten Ren’s Tea Japan. The Ten Ren Group is currently the biggest Chinese tea brand in the world with more than 2000 stores worldwide, such as in China, Hong Kong, Macau, North America, Canada, Australia, Japan, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and now available in Indonesia.

I saw about Hoshino from my IG timeline. I was very curious about the tea. They have outdoor and indoor area. I definitely chose to sit inside. I met the owner, a very nice person. He told me that he wanted to introduce tea to everybody. What an honour idea, right?

August 19th, 2017. When we had staycation at Karawang area end of July, I didn’t have a chance to visit Mi Bol. Mi Bol came to my hotel at that time, brought food and drinks. Yaaaay.. So, when I came again to Karawang, I visited Mi Bol. Finally.

Well, so sorry for the late post hahaha. As usual, I was too busy. Mi Bol means Mie and Boled. Mie is noodle. Boled is sweet potato. It’s Sundanese language. Mi Bol was opened early 2017. The place is very spacious. They have indoor and outdoor area. We sat at indoor area since it has AC. Yeah, you must know that I love AC hahaha..

Located on the back side of the Equity Tower, Bean Me Up served not only coffee, but food. It’s actually an open-air area. Not too spacious. Just a small open-kitchen and coffee machine, with several seats. But, every lunch time, it’s full pack!

Blumchen Coffee at SCBD Sudirman Jakarta

August 8th, 2017. It was a lovely day. Finally I visited Blumchen Coffee. It’s been so long since I wanted to go there. Yes, too long, I think. It was opened 4 years ago, if I’m not mistaken. And I will tell you a little bit about the place in this simple review.

IMG_2831

Located in SCBD area, Blumchen occupied a wide area in Lot 14. It’s not fancy. It’s not exclusive. But it’s very comfortable. When I was there, there’s a lot of people had meetings or working on their laptop. The atmosphere of the place was like an old house with wooden furnitures and warm ambiance. It was really a hidden gem in SCBD area, if you know what I mean.

One big size croissant with almond cream as the flavour and almond nut as the topping. Buttery and flaky, this almond croissant stole my heart. It’s not pretty, as you can see below. But tasted so very good. Super recommended!
