Ceylon is one of the biggest exporters of tea. Known as “The Island of Tea” and now called Sri Lanka the country has been growing tea for 150 years. In the 19th century the island was more known for growing coffee but after disease ravaged the coffee bushes the planting of tea estates started. Government involvement resulted in a decline in investment and standards. Over the last 20 years we have seen a reversal of this and some excellent plantation companies coming to the fore to promote quality of product and the well being of workers. The Ethical Tea Sourcing Partnership (ETP) works throughout Ceylon to monitor and support tea growers in improving the industry.
