Ceylon Tea

Ceylon - or modern day Sri Lanka - has one of the world's oldest tea empires. Scottish 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 loose leaf Ceylon Black Tea, delicate loose leaf Ceylon Green Tea, and rare loose leaf Ceylon White Tea are among this island nation's top tea exports. Find high-quality black Ceylon Tea in estate blend, organic, and decaffeinated varieties here.

This rich Ceylon breakfast tea is a blend of black teas from Kandy, the tea growing region where James Taylor produced the first crop of Ceylon black tea back in the 1860s. The aroma is sweet and toasty with hints of raisin and citrus. The smooth, deep-amber cup is bright and lively with a full mouth feel and well-balanced flavor that hints of cocoa, citrus and a crisp evergreen nuance that lingers into the finish.
