Description

This Sri Lankan Tea, Ceylon Melfort Special Green Tea is from the Nuwara Eliya district of Sri Lanka. The Estate lies in the high Pussellawa Valley, which has grown Tea for over 100 years.

Over the last decade, in particular, it has concentrated on the production of high-quality Green Tea such as this one. When it arrives at our Kent-based factory, we pack it fresh to order.

It’s worth noting, too, that the caffeine content of Sri Lankan Tea - Ceylon Melfort Special Green Tea is relatively significant (30-mg per 8-oz cup). This, of course, makes it a good choice for those needing an extra boost.

Furthermore, and perhaps even more importantly, studies suggest that it comes with Green Tea benefits. Whatever your reason for choosing it, you’re in for a treat. Buy it and brew today.

Facts About The Melfort Tea Estate

  • This garden first started growing and producing Ceylon Tea in 1914.
  • Most of its crop comes from Chinese Camellia sinensis var sinensis (Tea) plants.
  • The local climatic conditions contribute significantly to the taste of this infusion.
  • In 2004, a state-of-the-art factory opened - specialising in Green Tea.

A Brief History of Ceylon Tea

This country most famously makes Ceylon Black Tea. However, before 1869, it’s primary cash crop was Coffee - which that same year suffered at the hands of a plant-based disease.

It was the hard work and determination of a Scotsman named James Taylor responsible for saving this then-British colony from ruin. Ceylon Tea became the answer - followed, eventually, by this remarkable beverage.

Ceylon Melfort Special Green Tea Benefits

Early evidence suggests that the antioxidants in Sri Lankan Tea - Ceylon Melfort Special Green Tea can improve brain function.

In one study conducted at the University of Basel, Switzerland, researchers found that extracts of Green Tea increase the brain’s effective connectivity. This refers to the causal influence that one brain area exerts over another.

The effect of this connectivity also led to the improvement of cognitive improvement as proven by the volunteers who, after consuming the extract, tested significantly better for memory tasks. However, until we know more, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company does NOT endorse this Tea for this purpose. Instead, we support ongoing research.
