"Ceylon" is the previous name of the country from where it is grown, now Sri Lanka, a small island in the Indian Ocean. Sri Lanka tea is unique because the country's hot, sunny climate is perfectly balanced with the right amount of rain to yield teas with a wide range of flavour and colour. Our blend is created by carefully selecting the finest teas from the high-altitude district of Dimbula, which give this tea its bright, golden colour and crisp, refreshing taste. -Andrew Whittingham - Master Blender.
