Tea Land for Sale in Sri Lanka
Tea in Sri Lanka has been grown since the colonization that the country went through with the British. With it being a widely consumed beverage in England, the British who invaded in 1815 after the Dutch began cultivating the plant in the cooler regions in Sri Lanka too. This was mainly in the central parts of the country, including areas like Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, etc. The plantation of coffee also took place with their initiative, however the success of it wasn't as high as tea. The tea produced in Sri Lanka was sent back to England and later exported to the global market after independence. Because of its high quality, the reputation for Sri Lankan tea or Ceylon tea in the global market was well received. As a result, it became one of the primary income sources for Sri Lanka and is exported even today.
With the colonization, the consumption of tea in Sri Lanka has become a part of our culture as well. There is not a single Sri Lankan who doesn't consume at least 3 cups of tea in a day. In fact, this popularity for the product has led to production of it widening in many areas and led to different versions of it being created as well. Rather than the simple black tea, now green tea, cinnamon tea, earl grey, jasmine tea and so many other varieties are being produced in large scale. Sri Lankans also love combining their black tea with ginger to create ginger tea and milk to create milk tea. This has also encouraged many firms to join tea production and look for the best tea lands to cultivate the plant and innovate with different versions.
