If you’re a fan of tea, then you must try Sri Lankan tea! One of the most popular teas in the world, Sri Lankan tea has a unique flavour and aroma that sets it apart from other types of tea. Read on to learn more about what makes this tea so special.

A Brief History of Sri Lankan Tea

Sri Lanka has been producing tea for centuries, but its popularity didn’t truly take off until the mid-1800s when British plantation owners began cultivating it. The island’s temperate climate, high elevation, and fertile soil make it an ideal place to grow tea. As a result, it quickly became one of the largest producers of black tea in the world.

Today, over 300 varieties of Sri Lankan tea are produced each year, ranging from light and fragrant to full-bodied and robust. While all types have their own unique flavours, there are a few common characteristics that distinguish them from other teas. For example, they tend to be brighter in colour and bolder in flavour than other varieties. They also tend to have a distinctive floral aroma with hints of spice and citrus.

Additionally, many people find that Sri Lankan teas have less tannin content than other varieties. This means they can be enjoyed without sweeteners or milk as they won’t leave an unpleasant astringent aftertaste in your mouth like some other teas can.

Whether you love black tea or herbal varieties, don’t miss out on trying some delicious Sri Lankan teas! With its unique flavour profile and smooth finish, it's sure to become your favourite way to enjoy an afternoon cup of tea. So if you're looking for something new to try or just want to explore different types of teas from around the world, give Sri Lankan teas a try! You won't regret it!
