Women pick tea by hand in an ancient tea plantation high in the Pasemah Highlands, Sumatra, Indonesia.

Just after sunrise women in the Pasemah Highlands of South Sumatra begin the day's work of picking tea leaves by hand on a state owned tea plantation. The plantation, started during the days of Dutch colonialism, is now run by the Indonesian government. It is a valuable enterprise due to the high quality tea leaves from the volcanic soil of Gunung Dempo, whos lower slopes the plantation is situated on.
