Deep Dive into classic Ceylon Tea
Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon) has a long history with both morning beverages, coffee and tea. The country's history began with coffee plantations but by 1899 tea cultivation had reached 400,000 acres. Ceylon Tea is a popular black tea grown and produced in Sri Lanka, known for its seven growing regions. Each region is categorized into one of three elevations that bring unique flavors and varietals of Ceylon Tea. Dale Dharmaraja of Kanlo Tea will guide you through Sri Lankan history, tea growing regions and the processing of the tea and tea grading. Afterward, be sure to visit with Dale and enjoy a taste or two of tea. We welcome Dale and Kanlo Tea as a Pennsylvania Tea Festival Sponsor again this year.
