How to Brew Ceylon Tea
Use 1 level teaspoon per 6 oz. water. Heat water to boiling. Steep for 2 to 4 minutes. For best taste, do not over steep. These leaves can also handle a second or even third infusion.
We recommend preparing Ceylon using a teapot, tea infuser, or tea filter. These brewing methods give the tea leaves enough room to expand as the tea steeps, resulting in a richer, more flavorful cup. Ceylon can be enjoyed on its own for a brisk, refreshing cup, and also goes well with a splash of milk and sweetener or as a base for a tea latte.
Ceylon Tea Caffeine Content
Black tea contains a moderate amount of caffeine, less than half as much as coffee per cup.
Ceylon Tea Benefits
Black tea boosts energy, helps with focus, and is a lower-caffeine alternative to coffee.
More About Ceylon
Our Ceylon is organic and is from Koslanda, Sri Lanka’s premier region for organic teas. Tea plants smuggled from China were first introduced to Sri Lanka in the 1800s while under British rule. At the time, the region was called Ceylon, which lent its name to the tea produced there.
While tea production in Sri Lanka started off with only a few tea plantations, tea continued to gain popularity as an export throughout the 19th century and beyond. Today, Sri Lanka is one of the largest producers of tea in the world. In addition to Ceylon black tea, Sri Lanka also produces other specialty teas, including green and white tea.
