World of Tea: Sri Lanka

> World of Tea > Sri Lanka

Formerly known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka, which sits just off the southern coast of India, is a region that propelled the fortunes of such well-known tea barons as Sir Thomas Lipton and others. Teas grown here have unique characteristics - from the low grown, bold brews of the Dimbula region, to the higher grown lighter "champagne" of teas from the Nuwara Eliya region. When Americans think of tea, they usually think of Ceylon tea.
