Sri Lanka Tea Board is the apex regulatory and administrative body of the Sri Lankan tea industry. First set up in 1976, it comprises representatives from both private and government bodies involved in the industry, including cultivators and manufacturers, traders, exporters and plantation employees.

Tea is serious business in Sri Lanka. Formerly a British colony known as Ceylon, this small Indian Ocean island is famed for producing the finest black tea in the world, grown and produced according to uncompromising, traditional methods and standards. Since the 1880s, Ceylon tea has been the country’s principal and most famous export.

When purchasing Ceylon tea, look for the Lion Logo, a symbol of quality.

The Lion Logo is owned by the Sri Lanka Tea Board and globally trademarked. The Lion Logo on your pack of tea is a guarantee for 100% Pure Ceylon tea packed in Sri Lanka. To ensure what you buy is Ceylon tea, look for the Lion Logo. - To qualify for the special, legal distinction denoted by the words ‘Ceylon tea’, and for the famous Lion logo that goes with it, the tea must not only be grown and manufactured entirely in Sri Lanka; it must also conform to strict quality standards laid down and administered by the Sri Lanka Tea Board.
