Since 1706, Twinings of London has been masterfully blending teas to create a special moment with each cup of Ceylon Orange Pekoe tea you brew. Ceylon tea comes from the country that today is known as Sri Lanka. Twinings Ceylon tea is a pure, black tea that is made using the finest quality high grown teas from the Dimbula region in western Sri Lanka and blended with a subtle hint of citrus flavor and the fresh aroma of succulent grass on a summer’s day. In the 1870’s, Ceylon became a major tea producing area after the coffee crop failed. Its tea is still referred to as “Ceylon” despite the country changing its name to Sri Lanka in 1972 following independence. Ceylon is ideal to drink at any time of day and is great for ice tea too. Drink black, with a little milk and sweeten to taste.
