Sri Lanka Tea

Sri Lanka Tea Board

Tea production began in the nineteenth-century and today it is the fourth largest tea producer in the world. The majority of the tea produced is black tea. Tea production is one of the main sources of foreign exchange for Sri Lanka (formerly called Ceylon). It employs, directly or indirectly, over 1 million people on tea plantations and estates.

Sri Lanka’s central highlands have the humidity, cool temperatures and rainfall that is ideal for tea to grow.

Even though the country has been known as Sri Lanka since 1972, its tea is still called “Ceylon Tea”.

You can always recognize a Ceylon tea by the lion logo.
