In Sri Lanka, in addition to the white smile on the dark skin and the big eyes that hide the power of the soul, the most unforgettable thing is the sunset that slips away under the surging waves of the Indian Ocean, and the delicate tea set reflecting the shadow of the mottled trees. Ceylon Black Tea (Ceylon Black Tea) with a herbal aroma and slightly sour.

Just like the noble and elegant name of Sri Lanka, Ceylon black tea (Sri Lanka's former name Ceylon) also faintly exudes an aristocratic atmosphere. To put it jokingly, I really have to thank the blight that happened more than a hundred years ago, otherwise we would have Ceylon coffee today.

1.,the past and present of Ceylon black tea

The story goes like this: Sri Lanka became a British colony at the end of the 18th century. At that time, Sri Lanka’s main crop was coffee, and no one was interested in tea. It was not until 1824 that the British introduced Chinese tea to Lanka and planted the first seeds in the Peradeniya Botanical Garden near Kandy. In the 1870s, fusarium wilt caused the coffee plantations to be wiped out, and the tea, which was able to resist the disease, survived the catastrophe. So British plantation owners bought a large piece of land in the mountains of central Lanka to develop tea plantations, which developed rapidly in the 1980s. Today, Sri Lanka has become the world’s largest tea exporter, and Ceylon black tea is one of the world’s four major black teas (the other three are China’s Anhui Qimen black tea, India’s Assam black tea, and India’s Darjeeling black tea). "A gift to the world".

Of course, it is not only the blight of the year that made Ceylon black tea, the soil, climate, altitude, air quality, and sea breeze direction of the Lanka tea plantation all play an indispensable role in the achievement of the unique quality of Ceylon tea today. . Drinking black tea has many benefits: the antioxidants and tea polyphenols in black tea not only help protect the heart and brain blood vessels, but also inhibit the reproduction of oral bacteria, promote oral hygiene, and even enhance immunity, and effectively prevent cancer; in addition, the sodium content of black tea Low, suitable for long-term drinking for people with high blood pressure; and black tea can also help relieve fatigue, relax the body and mind and invigorate the spirit.

2. How to buy good Ceylon black tea

Anyone who has been to a Hong Kong tea restaurant will never forget that glass of Hong Kong-style milk tea. The authentic Hong Kong-style milk tea has a silky texture and rich aroma. The secret lies in the raw materials it uses. The black tea used in the Hong Kong-style milk tea produced by Hong Kong tea restaurants is imported from Sri Lanka, and the addition of black and white evaporated milk creates the unique taste of Hong Kong-style milk tea.
