About Ceylon Tea
Ceylon Tea was the after-product of disaster. In 1869, a plant-based disease called coffee-rust decimated the Ceylonese Coffee Industry, and with it, the economy. A Scotsman named James Taylor had, years before the outbreak, experimented with Tea production in Ceylon. His Loolecondera Tea Estate proved revolutionary and eventually gave rise to a Ceylon Tea Industry.
But success did not come easily. In order to expand Tea cultivation in Ceylon, more than 120,000 hectares (300,000 acres) of land had to be stripped of dead and dying coffee-bushes to make way for Tea planting. These exploits did not go unnoticed around the world, as noted by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes stories. He wrote in his short story 'De Profundis':
"a rotten fungus drove a whole community through years of despair to one of the greatest commercial victories which pluck and ingenuity ever won... the tea-fields of Ceylon are as true a monument to courage as is the lion at Waterloo".
Without the successes of James Taylor's endeavours, we might not have delicious, wholesome beverages such as our Exotic Peach Iced Tea.

Benefits of Exotic Peach Iced Tea
A 2015 meta-analysis found that drinking a cup of Tea a day (no matter the type) reduced the risk of developing cancer by 2%. Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower risk of cancer than those who drank none. It's important to note, however, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company do not endorse the consumption of Tea for this purpose. We nevertheless support ongoing research.
