Ceylon Tea
Ceylon is the former name of the island state south and east of the Indian subcontinent, now known as Sri Lanka (an independent country, today). The humidity, cool temperatures, and rainfall of the country’s central highlands provide a climate that favors the production of high-quality tea. Tea has been grown in Sri Lanka since 1867, when British planter, James Taylor, began his tea plantation.
