Ceylon Black Tea

Ceylon - or modern day Sri Lanka - has one of the world's oldest tea empires. British tea planter James Taylor introduced the first tea plantation to Ceylon in 1867, where the tea leaves thrived in the cool, humid climate. Full-bodied Ceylon Black Tea, delicate Ceylon Green Tea, and rare Ceylon White Tea are among this island nation's top tea exports.
