Sri Lanka is one of the leading tea producers these days and Ceylon tea is definitely considered to be one of the most popular types of tea all over the world. Whether it is Ceylon black tea or Ceylon green tea, tea connoisseurs greatly appreciate it for a rich, robust taste and strong aroma. Even people, who have never heard of Sri Lanka, are familiar with Ceylon tea that is synonymous of quality and unforgettable taste.

In fact, pure Ceylon tea is a type of black tea originated in the South Asian country of Sri Lanka, formerly named Ceylon. Ceylon tea was born as the result of a coffee blight in the country that led to tea being introduced as a replacement crop. The first tea seeds and young plants were brought to Ceylon from the botanical gardens in Calcutta (India) in 1839. The father of the tea industry in Sri Lanka - James Taylor began the tea plantation in Loolecondera estate Kandy in 1867. Today all Ceylon tea produced in Sri Lanka has the right to carry the "Lion Logo", which denotes that it is pure Ceylon Tea.

The tea is grown on numerous plantations throughout the country, and that's why varies in taste. Six regions of Ceylon produce tea: Galle, Ratnapura, Kandy, Dimulla, Uva and Nuwara Eliya. Ceylon tea produced in each region has own individual characteristics of flavor, aroma and color. As a rule, the tea leaves are carefully selected and oxidized, and then the tea is roasted and prepared for sale at packaging facilities. The control of each stage of cultivation, gathering, processing and packing of tea provides its constant quality and freshness.

Do you know that Ceylon tea is available in three types: Ceylon black tea, Ceylon green tea and Ceylon white tea? Ceylon black tea is the best known and famous for a crisp aroma reminiscent of citrus and bright golden color that appeals to tea drinkers throughout the world. Sri Lanka also produces Ceylon green tea that tends to be darker and richer in flavor than the green tea commonly produced in China. Ceylon white tea (also known as "silver tips") is made from very young buds that are silvery white. While being grown, harvested and rolled by hand with the leaves dried and withered in the sun, this tea is also more delicate in flavor.

Pure Ceylon tea imparts plenty of health benefits to the drinker. Whether it is Ceylon black tea, white tea or Ceylon green tea, it contains polyphenols which give this drink its antioxidant properties. Regular drinking of Ceylon tea lowers the risk of developing cancer, prevents high blood pressure and reduces the risk of heart attack, strengthens the immune system and helps reduce stress and anxiety. Indeed, a cup of pure Ceylon tea is good start of the day refreshing your mind and giving you the necessary energy.
