Sri Lanka

Where: Sri Lanka, although its teas keep the country’s former name of ‘Ceylon’. It is the world’s fourth largest tea producer.

Types: Ceylon’s teas are divided by altitude (low, medium and high-grown) and two quality seasons named after regions: the Uva season from July to September and the Dimbulla season from December to February.

The brews: Ceylon teas are light, bright and citrusy. The different altitudes and regions produce a rich variety. Uva teas are light but with a strong aroma. Dimbulla teas are also light but with a mellow fragrance of flowers.
