A Brief History of Ceylon Tea

This country most famously makes Ceylon Black Tea. However, before 1869, it’s primary cash crop was Coffee Beans - 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.
