Loloh Cemcem is a traditional beverage from Penglipuran Village. Penglipuran Village is one of the most frequently visited tourist villages and is located in Kubu District, Bangli Regency. Cemcem leaf is one of the main commodities produced by Penglipuran Village. By the local people, the leaves are processed into fresh drinks that are beneficial for our health.

After that, mix the water with cinnamon and liquid palm sugar to neutralize the bitter taste that comes from the leaves. To add to the delicious taste of this drink, there are some sellers who deliberately mix coconut meat into it. If you add ice cubes, it will definitely be more refreshing!
