Pure Ceylon Tea from teakruthi

Pure Ceylon Tea

'Ceylon Tea', sourced from Sri Lanka, has long had a reputation of being one of the finest in the world. However most teas marketed as such are not truly pure and are often blended with lower quality teas from other markets.

Only teas that are packaged with the lion certification logo is pure Ceylon Tea. The logo certifies that the tea are grown and manufactured entirely in Sri Lanka, conforming to strict quality standards laid down and administered by the Sri Lanka Tea Board. It cannot, moreover, be mixed or blended with tea from any other part of the world. Learn more about the benefits of Ceylon Tea from the Sri Lanka Tea Board.
