A fairly young tea, Ceylon has been produced for just over 150 years. Now known as Sri Lanka, Ceylon was a British colony that grew primarily coffee. In the 1860s a Scotsman named James Taylor was selected by an estate endeavoring to grow tea. Transporting tea plants from Assam, they were able to grow and harvest tea for the first time and by the mid-1870s were selling handmade teas as far away as London. 
 
After disease wiped out all the coffee plants in Ceylon, tea plantations really took root and Sri Lanka, production growing from 23 pounds per year to over 23 tons! Thomas Lipton (founder of Lipton Tea) began gardens here and produced tea for what became one of the most famous tea brands ever.  
 
A unique drying process gives Ceylon its distinct flavor and it is widely used as a blending tea, providing a strong base tea for many flavored blends. You will find it in many of our breakfast teas and flavored blends, too! 

Ingredients: Black tea from Sri Lanka.

A Very Nice Discovery

Having been an Assam fan for years, I have been concerned recently by its seeming decline in body and flavor. As a result I took a flyer on this Ceylon selection and I’m glad I did! Very pleasant aroma, brisk flavor, a good level of astringency, and though it lacks the traditional malty notes of past Assam’s I think it’s a keeper and would happily recommend it to anyone.
