Is the time ripe for Sri Lankan tea exporters to make a shift away from bulk tea to value added packed at the source tea, Specialty Teas, and Artisan Teas?
Specialty teas or artisan teas have been a well-kept secret in the Sri Lankan tea sector. Produced in small quantities and traded among select circles of tea connoisseurs, who have a taste for rare tea flavors, Ceylon Specialty Tea includes niche segments of local tea industry that produce white tea, fair trade organic tea, single estate loose leaf tea as well as flavored dessert teas.
A whopping 96% of Pure Ceylon Tea production volumes leave Sri Lanka to serve eager global buyers while only 4% of it is brewed locally –and the Lankan tea sector is now called to lead the value addition way on 10 July. “Pure Ceylon Tea exports grew by 5.4% in 2014. Only 50% of tea export revenues came from value added while other 50% is from raw tea exports” revealed Bandula Egodage (Chairman & CEO-EDB) on 10 July.

The best of Ceylon Tea, hand-picked and processed with extreme care is designed to deliver the most exclusive tea experiences across the world.
The finest of the tea flavours and their blends were a well- kept secret in the Chinese Royal court and their betrayal was so big a crime, that it was punished with death and torture. However, most of these tea blends are being manufactured in Sri Lanka today, with greater flavour and aroma, compared to their predecessors.
Ceylon Tea and Tourism are among Sri Lanka's top five foreign income earners and their combination is tipped to create a unique experience as refreshing as a cup of Ceylon Tea. Thus, Ceylon Tea & Tourism make perfect partners to tango.
