3. The Return of Indonesia’s Herbal Drinks

Indonesia’s herbal drinks had been fading away in popularity in conjunction with modernization, however, the coronavirus pandemic has restored the public's appreciation of these beverages.

President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo said that for centuries, Indonesians have struck a balance in maintaining a sense of harmony between nature and cultural principles.

The coronavirus pandemic in particular is believed to bring back traditional customs onto modern Indonesian society.

Jokowi highlighted that Indonesians have turned to local customs such as regularly consuming herbal drinks to boost immunity during the pandemic.

President Joko Widodo explained that the return of Indonesia’s herbal drinks in the domestic market should encourage local artists and cultural practitioners to continue their craft in these hard times.
