Ceylon Black Tea

Ceylon black tea is one of the country’s specialties. It has a crisp aroma reminiscent of citrus and is used both as pure tea and in blends. It is grown on numerous estates which vary in altitude and resulting tea taste.

The name Ceylon Tea is legally protected by The Sri Lanka Tea Board. Only the tea grown, entirely manufactured, and packed in Sri Lanka can bear the Lion of Ceylon logo. However, if the content is 100% Sri Lankan, importers can still legally use the name ‘Ceylon Tea’ on their own packaging.
