Sri Lanka (Ceylon)

Known in the world of tea by its colonial name, ‘Ceylon’, the tea-shaped country of Sri Lanka is one of the world’s most celebrated exporters of tea. It is an exciting time for the country as this year, Sri Lanka is celebrating its 150th anniversary of its historic tea industry.

The climate on the mountainous island creates the ideal conditions for growing the Camellia Sinensis tea plant.

Ceylon loose leaf teas vary in flavour depending on terroir, the season of picking and post-harvest production. These wonderful luxury teas are usually characterised as strong, rich, dark and complex. In more recent years these tea plantations have begun to produce more high-quality Ceylon green and white teas as well.

Ceylon green teas - such as the Gunpowder variety - generally have a much stronger flavour than Chinese and Japanese green teas, whereas its silver needle teas are delicate, rare and very sought-after amongst tea connoisseurs.
