Story, Folklore, History
The black tea base of this luxurious blend comes from the beautiful central highlands of Sri Lanka, world-famous for their high quality black teas and pioneering agricultural methods. Sri Lanka was not always known for tea, however. Formerly named Ceylon, Sri Lanka was a major coffee exporter during the days of the Dutch and British colonies. By 1870, Sri Lanka was the world’s largest coffee producer. When the ‘coffee rust’ blight hit Sri Lanka in 1875, most coffee plantations were destroyed within 20 years. Shortly thereafter, tea plantations were established, and continue to flourish there today.
