The first tea bushes were planted at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Peradeniya 1824 by English planters. James Taylor began commercial planting in 1867 and is known as the father of Ceylon Tea.

Ceylon tea is currently grown in 7 different eco-systems with a broad spectrum of flavours, tastes and strengths from hi-grown to low-grown varieties.

The Ceylon Tea Board (SLTB) is the watchdog of the industry to ensure quality standards are maintained and was responsible for the introduction of the ‘Lion’ logo as the seal of quality approval. Our 200 year old industry has adapted and matured to consistently produce the finest teas on the planet.
