Ceylon black tea is a type of black tea that is grown and produced in Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon). It is known for its full-bodied, robust flavor and is often described as having a slightly sweet, spicy taste. Ceylon black tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, which are harvested and then allowed to oxidize (a process called fermentation) to develop their flavor and color.

Like other types of black tea, Ceylon black tea is a good source of antioxidants, which may help to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Some research suggests that black tea may also have a number of other potential health benefits, including improving heart health, aiding in weight loss, and reducing the risk of certain types of cancer.

Ceylon black tea is often enjoyed on its own, but it is also used as a base for flavored teas and can be blended with other ingredients to create unique flavors. It is commonly served hot, but it can also be served iced or as a cold brew.

Our Ceylon black tea is available in 1.5 oz and 3 oz bags. We also offer this tea in cold brew packs.
