Rediscover Tea


History of Ceylon Tea

A fascinating look into the history of the beautiful beverage in a cup.


Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, is famously known as one of the finest islands on earth. It has a rich history dating back thousands of years and is a haven for picture perfect sceneries and locales. Rich with a variety of local cultivation, Tea remains to be the most popular from around the world.

The introduction of Tea dates back to the 1800s when Sir James Taylor introduced the Tea Industry to Ceylon. It didn’t take long to start the first exports to the UK which was followed soon after by the rest of the world. Ceylon Tea is enjoyed all across the world and has been delighting taste buds for over 100 years. However, while the demand for Ceylon Tea may have been met, the quality certainly has not.

As Ceylon Tea celebrates 150 years, Rian Tea is passionately dedicated to deliver the finest premium quality tea which is freshly packed at source. We want you to rediscover the true taste of tea with every sip you take and bring back the unique and sophisticated taste that was initially found by Sir James Taylor.
