Tea offered from the dramatic country identified geo-politically as Sri Lanka is branded as Ceylon Tea. Tea grows all over the island, but 4 regions, primarily in the central highlands above 4,000 feet, are highly revered by tea lovers the world over.There are 2 major tea-producing regions in the south; and each of the 6 regions has a different flavour profile and time of production. When one is dormant another is producing, due to distinct climate differences. The 6 regions are: Nuwara Eliya, Kandy, Uva,and Dimbula in the highlands, and Galle and Ratnapura in the south. The descriptor most often associated with Ceylon tea is brisk, the term that one Sir Thomas Lipton ascribed to Ceylon tea back in the late 1800s. Brew for 3 minutes.
