A Drink with Oza



Why tea?
Indonesia is a big of producer & exporter of tea. But what do we know about tea? Isn't it ironic we have something so valuable in our own backyard but we know nothing about it. And the world of tea is really big and wide to explore. Very enchanting & alluring. And coffee is too mainstream btw.

Why OZA?
Why not? Thank God my name is catchy! OZA is similar to Ocha (Japanese for tea) rite?

Why 1835?
1835 was the first time Nusantara's Tea shipped to International Auction in Amsterdam. I consider it one of a milestone in Indonesia Tea History, the export chapter.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
When I could put the world in my hand and the after-life in my heart. Mati masuk surga. Rame-rame.

Describe yourself in three words!
Tiger. Fire. Metal (logam).

What do you dislike most about your appearance?
When my belly was offside. Thank God the moment has passed.

When and where your happiest?
When I look at the past & say my gratitude towards God. When I'm on fire and feel like I can conquer the world. When I feel I'm a changing man, not like I used to be.

If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what do you think it would be?
I don't believe in reincarnation.

What is it that you most dislike?
When I couldn't conquer myself. When I lose my temper. Motorbike with knalpot-rombeng!

What is your greatest fear?
Not being loved by God.

What is love?
Love is commitment. Love is accepting. Love is built by little things called caring.

The meaning of friendship is…
To give & expect no return. To understand.

What talent do you wish you had?
Playing many musical instruments. I only could play few. Guitar, harmonica, & flute recorder. And all of 'em are on mediocre level.

Life most embarrassing moment?
Guess never happened to me.

How would you like to die?
In my sujud.

Do you want to be liked or respected?
Respected is enough.

What is your favourite hero of fiction?
Spawn. And any heroes with mask. Because jagoan harus pake topeng! I really love mask actually.

Who is your hero in real life?
Dad. The living person I respected the most.

I'm upset when…
I give my trust to someone & the trust is betrayed.

I can't live without…
Dreams and goals.

How do you describe your management style?
I give goals and it's up to my team how to achieve it. I delegate tasks & responsibility. I look into details, well sometimes too much.

What's important in your life?
Faith. A reason & purpose of life. Dreams. Goals. 

Your idea of relaxation?
Some cups of tea. Good book. Near the forest. By the river. In a log cabin. With fireplace.

What will be your last meal before you die?
Simply plain water. You'll die anyway.
