Fresh From Origin
Ceylon is the old name of Sri Lanka. And all the tea that is grown here is still referred to as such. Most of the plantations are located in the hills, south of Kandy. The most famous tea-growing regions are all in the highlands: Dimbula, Uva and Nuwara Eliya. The high-grown teas, those cultivated above 4000 feet, tend to be superior to the lower-grown varieties. Ceylon's finer qualities - delicate flavor and sweet aroma - are typically found in its high-grown teas.
