About the tea
In the Old Sinegal language, the word "Lanka" (as it was once called the island of Ceylon) means "blessed", "beautiful". There is a legend that Adam and Eve, expelled from paradise, fell precisely on Ceylon. Although, it seems, it is unlikely that the Old Testament God was so kind that he sent the exiles from one paradise to another. Because many European travelers called the island of Ceylon "a paradise on Earth." And also called the island of tea - the abundance of the sun, a mild, very humid climate, generous soils - all this creates unique conditions for the tea plant.
It is noteworthy that nature created Ceylon for tea, but did not create tea for Ceylon - until the middle of the nineteenth century, Ceylon was an "island of coffee", it was cultivated exclusively coffee plant, until in 1869 the epidemic did not destroy the coffee plantations.
It was then that the golden age of Ceylon tea began - the plant was perfectly adapted to the hot climate of the island and its mountainous terrain. Now tea bushes occupy all the plains and slopes of the island. Only where the steepness of the slope exceeds 50 °, the breeding of tea is recognized inexpedient - in such places you can still see small strips of the forest, which was previously covered with the whole of Ceylon. But do not think that the green carpet of tea that covers the Ceylon mountains - sometimes they are called "tea mountains" - is homogeneous. It is divided into small plantations, the owners of which devote themselves entirely to improving the quality and taste of their tea. Therefore, the bright aroma and noble taste of black tea from Sri Lanka continues to surprise the real connoisseurs year after year.
Today Ceylon tea is highly appreciated all over the world, its soft delicate taste can be considered classic, the tea bouquet is harmonious and well balanced.
