A Brief History of Ceylon Tea
The introduction of the world’s second-most popular beverage to Sri Lanka happened well over a century ago. The first tea plant in Sri Lanka was planted by the British in 1824, at the Peradeniya Royal Botanical Gardens.
But it was Scot, James Taylor, who is credited for the flourishing tea industry of Ceylon. In 1867, James Taylor planted nearly 19 acres of tea in Kandy, the first commercial tea plantation in Sri Lanka.
Since then, derivatives of Ceylon tea (in particular, its black tea variety) have gone on to become a favourite among tea-drinkers worldwide.
