Ceylon Tea - Instant Tea: A Growing Industry in Sri Lanka (TeaHouseTimesAdmin)
posted Mon May 22nd 2017 @ 10:48 AM

The vast majority of the very strictly regulated tea manufactured in Sri Lanka is orthodox loose leaf yet there are a few “unorthodox” segments which are growing: Teabags, Value-added Tea Bags (i.e. tea that has been flavored and/or blended with other botanicals), and Instant Tea specifically.  Let’s have a look at Instant Tea which makes up approximately 1% of all Ceylon Tea produced and is poised to increase significantly.

Water Hunting - Guest Post by Zhen Lu, Zhen Tea (TeaHouseTimesAdmin)
posted Mon May 22nd 2017 @ 9:52 AM

There is a famous Chinese saying that water is the mother of tea, but knowing the saying doesn’t mean practising the saying. I, for example, wasn’t into exploring different water possibilities. I used filtered tap water for most teas because after filtering, the water is fairly pure with low (I wouldn’t assume zero) mineral content which minimises the water's effect on the tasting of the tea. It fits my professional requirements and on the personal level, it suits my laziness. Filtered water makes tea ware cleaning very easy. Just some boiling water and all the tea stains on gaiwan and serving pots are instantly gone. But after my husband came home with a story about how great the water from Wakefield was, we had to find it and try it for ourselves. Read More »

THE CELEBRATION OF 150 YEARS OF ‘CEYLON TEA’ IN 2017 (TeaHouseTimesAdmin)
posted Mon December 19th 2016 @ 12:00 PM

The Tea Industry of Sri Lanka will celebrate its 150th Anniversary in 2017. The commercial cultivation of tea commenced in 1867, fortuitously supplanting coffee, which, till then, was the country’s main cash crop, shortly thereafter devastated by a ravaging plant blight. A Scotsman named James Taylor is reputed to have developed the first commercial plantation and commenced the manufacture of Tea on Loolcondera Estate, Hewaheta. He was followed by other pioneers, who not only contributed agriculturally, but also helped create the infrastructure, which continues to facilitate the supply chain of this great Industry.
