Pure Ceylon Tea – known globally as the best tea in the world and acknowledged for its distinct taste and flavor, had indeed humble beginnings.

Tea which originated from China and subsequently India is identified by the botanical name of “Camellia Thea”. James Taylor – a Scotsman - in 1867, is credited with making the first commercial basis tea planting in Ceylon. The success of his pioneering effort at Loolecondera estate was enthusiastically followed by scores of other planters, thus heralding a new era of great promise, productivity and profitability.

Tea is extremely sensitive to the elements of the atmosphere - be it the climate, soil, temperature or even fragrance. In Sri Lanka (then Ceylon) the 3 different elevations where tea grows, bring out distinct differences accordingly in color, taste and aroma. This forms the basis for the differences in tea varieties

Ceylon tea became the front-runner of the industry and was much loved for its unmatched quality and variety. The alchemy of land, sun and rain in the Paradise Island of Ceylon, as it was known then, presented the ideal climatic conditions for cultivation of tea. Ceylon added a new dimension to tea by producing variations in taste, quality, character and appearance, largely based on terrier of the region. Ceylon tea with its distinct taste and character became every consumer's favorite cup.
