The history of Ceylon tea can be traced back to the late 19th Century, when a Scotsman by the name of James Taylor cleared 19 acres of land in Sri Lanka to plant the country's first seedlings. It was the beginning of what has since turned into a globally celebrated region of the tea industry—and Ceylon Pearl Tea has certainly contributed.
Rather than snatching steaming teapots from neighborhood windowsills, the company imports teas directly from its family of plantations spread across 53,000 acres of fertile land in Sri Lanka. This valley-to-cup process enables the business to be extremely selective: it picks only the highest qualities of black and green teas, which are available in more than 200 flavors and blends. To enhance the tea-drinking experience, Ceylon Pearl Tea also carries a line of porcelain cups and saucers, and packs customized gift baskets with quality teas and accessories.
