Ceylon Tea Continues to Woo Me

Sunday, September 17th 2017 @ 10:31 PM

Happy Monday everyone! Here’s the latest on The Tea House Times' continuing coverage of Ceylon Tea. . . and yes.... Ceylon tea continues to wooooo me!!! I am seriously in love with Sri Lanka and the very delicious tea I plucked and manufactured myself, yes myself!! 

Subscribers to bi-monthly issues of The Tea House Times publication in print or digital, will find a feature story on my visit to Sri Lanka this August to experience all of the wonderful celebrations for the 150th Anniversary of Ceylon Tea.  In our Sept/Oct issue you will read about the incredible time I spent with my friend Louise Roberge, Tea & Herbal Assoc. of Canada – to experience the Make Your Own Tea Program at Lumbini in Deniyaya. 

Photos of my trip have also been added to The Tea House Times Facebook page.  The latest additions are listed and linked below. A picture says a thousand words and so I will end my blog this week with links to the photo albums. Enjoy!
