Perhaps best of all, we pack it fresh to order, thus ensuring quality and consistency. Buy it and try it today right here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. You won’t be disappointed.

What is Ceylon Tea?

  • Ceylon Tea (also known as Sri Lanka Tea) is usually a type of Black Tea.
  • It tends to have a bolder flavour compared to the likes of Assam and China Black Tea.
  • Ruhunu Balangoda FP Estate Tea, in particular, is one of the boldest of them all.

  • Tea-growing land now covers around 4% of the island.
  • An estimated 5% of the country’s population works in the industry.

About The Balangoda Tea Estate

This garden finds itself in Ruhunu, Sri Lanka, sharing its geography with the renowned and truly breathtaking Yala National Park. The area has long been known for its thriving wildlife, from leopards to Asian elephants to wild boar and crocodiles.

Tea-growing, despite taking a back seat when compared to the animals found here, is also popular due to its outstanding quality.

While the likes of Uva, Dimbula and Nuwara Eliya boast cool climes, the Ruhunu district, in comparison, is hotter and more humid.

This means that Tea produced at Balangoda is unique in its character and charm. Why not find out for yourself with Ceylon Ruhunu Balangoda FP Estate Tea? Discover its full potential as your new morning cuppa.
