Sri Lankan Tea Country

The Sri Lankan tea industry is undergoing a renaissance. Once upon a time nearly 60% of all revenue exports were from tea. With the end of decades of civil war and an improving economy the tea industry is set to boom again. Eco tourism and organic blends are being used to try and help sell Sri Lankan tea to the world.
