My Blue Tea is spicing up the scene with the launch of Borneo Hot Sauce sown by Bulbul Birds

Updated: May 7

My Blue Tea is spicing up the scene with the launch of Borneo Hot Sauce.

Crafted from Momporok Chilli, this exquisite sauce is born from seeds selected and sown by Bornean Bulbul birds at dawn's first light. These birds, dwellers of forests and thickets, contribute to a natural growth process by consuming the chillies and returning the seeds to the earth. Typically nesting within dense bushes and feeding on fruit and insects, the Bulbuls play a pivotal role in the creation of our unique hot sauce.

The Momporok chilli, a legacy from ancestors to future generations. Cultivated along the tranquil southeast coast of North Borneo, employing regenerative methods aimed at reducing atmospheric carbon, revitalising our lands, and strengthening communities.




The Heart of Borneo

Borneo, a giant, rugged island in Southeast Asia’s Malay Archipelago, is shared by the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, Indonesian Kalimantan and the tiny nation of Brunei.

Borneo, the world's third largest island, accounts for just 1% of the world's land yet holds approximately 6% of global biodiversity in its rich, tropical forests. Its species range from the distinct Bornean orang utans and elephants to the giant pitcher plants, clouded leopards and Rafflesia flowers. It’s known for its beaches and ancient, biodiverse rainforest, home and in Sabah is 4,095m-tall Mount Kinabalu, the island’s highest peak, and, offshore, the famed dive site Sipadan Island.

The Bornean bulbul (Rubigula montis) is a member of the bulbul family of passerinebirds. It is endemic to the island of Borneo. The Bornean bulbul was previously placed in genus Pycnonotus. This genus was found to be polyphyletic in recent molecular phylogenetic studies and five bulbul species, including the Bornean bulbul, moved to Rubigula. Until 2008, the Bornean bulbul was considered as conspecific with the black-capped, black-crested, ruby-throated and flame-throated bulbuls. Some authorities have considered the Bornean bulbul to be a subspecies of the black-capped bulbul.
