If you are new to the world of tea, Ceylon teas can be a great place to start. Produced in Sri Lanka, these teas offer a wide variety of flavours and aromas that range from delicate floral notes to full-bodied, earthy flavours. If you want to take your Ceylon tea experience one step further, consider trying organic Ceylon teas. Not only are they better for the environment and more sustainable, but they also provide a richer flavour and aroma than traditional non-organic teas. Here's everything you need to know about choosing organic Ceylon teas.

Types of Organic Ceylon Teas

Organic Ceylon teas come in many varieties, each with its own unique taste and aroma. The most popular types of organic Ceylon tea include black tea, oolong tea, green tea, white tea, pu-erh tea and flowering teas. Each type of tea has its own distinctive flavour profile depending on the region it is grown in and the harvesting process used. For example, black tea is typically bolder and more robust than other types of organic Ceylon teas while green tea tends to have a lighter taste with grassy or floral notes.

Harvesting Process

The quality of any organic Ceylon tea depends heavily on how it is harvested. The best quality organic Ceylon teas are handpicked by skilled workers who carefully select only the finest leaves for processing. Handpicking ensures that only the highest quality leaves make it into the final product and results in a cup of tea with a rich flavour profile and unparalleled aroma. By contrast, machine harvesting often leads to lower quality leaves being included in the mix which can result in an inferior flavour when brewed into a cup of tea.


When shopping for organic Ceylon teas it is important to pay attention to certification labels on packaging as this will help ensure that you are buying genuine organic products rather than those produced using conventional methods or chemicals. Certified organic products must adhere to strict standards set out by international organisations such as IFOAM (International Federation Of Organic Agriculture Movements) which guarantee that all ingredients used in production have been grown without synthetic fertilisers or pesticides according to guidelines set out by IFOAM itself or local governments such as USDA (United States Department Of Agriculture) and etc.

Whether you are looking for something light or full-bodied, there is an organic Ceylon Tea for every taste preference! When selecting an organic option it’s important to pay attention to both certification labels on packaging as well as harvesting processes used when producing the product so that you can be sure that what you’re getting is truly certified organic! With these tips in mind, you’ll be sure to find the perfect cup of organic Ceylon Tea for your next break time treat! Cheers!
