  • Sri Lanka, Ratnapura District

    Sri Lanka "Ceylon" is a major tea exporter, but believe or not before 1860 there was not a single tea tree growing on the island. The entire island was covered with coffee plantations but due to the parasitic fungus "Hemileia vastatrix" that attacked the coffee plant leaves and wiped out the coffee plantations in a couple of decades, there was a space to grow something new and more exciting. James Taylor a young Scot who worked for a large coffee grower managed to obtain a few seeds from the Royal Botanical Garden of Peradeniya and created first tea plantation. After that the tea spread very quickly from 1000 acres in 1875 to 300 000 acres in 1900. Sri Lanka has favourable climate that allows growers to produce several harvests per year.

"Litlle Poetry" by JD

"Fly to me, you little stripy brownish-gold bumble bee
I lure you to me, with my mint and eucalyptus aroma
It's all for free…. so come and fly with me
My pure honey nectar is sweet and creamy
Bits of spice and pepper it's all for you, my little dreamy
So fly to me, my little stripy brownish-gold bumble bee
I'm super addictive..."
