Ceylon 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 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.
