Brewing instructions
Description

Ceylon Tea Bags come from Sri Lanka - often dubbed the “Island of Tea.” It has a bold, full, brisk flavour with notes of citrus, chocolate and spice. Many consider it a heartier infusion than the likes of Assam Tea, Kenya Tea and China Black Tea.

We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, ensuring quality and consistency with every cuppa brewed.

It’s worth noting, too, that Ceylon Tea Bags might come with health benefits. This is according to the latest scientific research, which indicates it has great potential.

There is also a significant amount of caffeine found within - specifically 45-mg per 8-oz cup. It remains one of our best-selling products, going above and beyond to impress all those who drink it. Be enthralled by its character and charm today.

What is Ceylon Tea?

Ceylon Tea is a Black Tea type that first emerged when the country, then a British colony, was also called Ceylon. This took place during the 19th century after a plant-based disease known as Coffee Rust all but destroyed the island’s Coffee crop. Growing Tea, as a result, became an alternative for hundreds of farmers. It ultimately proved to be a tremendous success.

The first person to grow Ceylon Tea was a Scotsman named James Taylor. Years before the outbreak, he had planted 19 acres of it at his Loolecondera Estate in Kandy.

He would later also establish the first fully-equipped Tea factory. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of the Sherlock Holmes stories, famously wrote: “The Tea-fields of Ceylon are as true a monument as is the lion at Waterloo.”

In 1948, Ceylon attained its independence and, decades after, in 1972, changed its name to “Sri Lanka.” The name of this Tea, however, remained the same due to its immense popularity around the world.

Today, Tea Estates cover an estimated 4% of Sri Lanka’s landmass, with around 5% of the local population working in the industry. It is now the fourth-largest Tea producer globally.

  7. Our favourite 'tea bag' tea. You need two bags to make a pot for two and one is a bit too strong for one mug but I make them last for two mugs. Flavour is full but not bitter and great with or without milk. I use soya milk and the taste is full
