Before 1972 Sri Lanka wasn’t Sri Lanka. It was the Dominion of Ceylon, which is where this tea originates and gets its name from. In fact, tea production is the fourth highest in the world in Sri Lanka and it accounts for nearly 12% of the country’s GDP. The first Ceylon tea plantation was founded 1867 by James Taylor, in Kandy, Ceylon. He named the plantation Loolecondera and it was a financial boon for him and for the East India Company.

The flavor is often described as bitter and somewhat astringent, though a persistent sweetness lies underneath it all for those looking for it. It is best served with cream and sugar.
