Ceylon Sonata tea in bulk available for wholesale. Classic black tea from Sri Lanka. In colonial times, this island nation was known as Ceylon. This name is still used to describe all teas grown here. Ceylon tea is bright and lively, medium body and delightfully tangy. Our 'Ceylon Sonata' is a full leaf OP grade from the renowned Kenilworth Estate, located in Sri Lanka's Kandy region. Fresh, citrusy aroma, sweet juicy notes like mandarin peel or grapefruit, refreshing texture and balanced astringency. The perfect afternoon tea.

Fresh From Origin

The first tea plant was smuggled into Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon) in 1824. While it was not intended for commercial uses at the time, it wasn’t long before more plants arrived, and by 1867, the first tea plantation was founded by Scotsman James Taylor. By the 1880s, following a severe blight in the 1870s, nearly all coffee plantations had converted to tea. Now, Sri Lanka is one of the world’s largest producers of tea, with six main growing regions across several elevations and growing conditions.

How long have you been growing tea?
Straight from school, I joined the industry in year 1995 where I have been working for the last 14 years in the existing tea plantation of Kenilworth Estate, Ginigathena under Ms. Watawala Plantations PLC.
What got you started in the Tea industry?
Since the quality of Sri Lankan tea, has a global recognition for competitive performance and reputation. I decided, this is the best opportunity to serve the country as this is the back bone of Sri Lankan economy also I experienced the environment and culture of the Tea since my child hood.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field. How many hours would that be?
Being a Hindu, I start my day by worshiping god and starting from the muster at 6.30 a.m. allocating workers to achieve days target when & where it requires. Thereafter, I spend more time in the field supervising all agricultural practices and checking the quality of the raw material [Green leaf]. Motivating a work force of approximately 500 workers, whom sometimes encounter heavy rains, blowing, cold climatic conditions take a fair amount of my time. The work involving supervision could take a minimum of 10 -12 hours a day on a 6 day week.
