The island nation of Sri Lanka was known as Ceylon until 1972. It is the world's fourth largest tea producer & its famous tea leaves, which are still called Ceylon, are cherished for their taste & consistent quality.

Likewise, the tea produced in each region of Sri Lanka have a remarkable variety as a result of its enormous range in elevation, climate, soil type, & weather. They are graded using the British Tea Grading, & classified by elevation: low, medium or high grown.
