When the British first brought tea plants from China to Ceylon (now known as Sri Lanka) back in 1824, little did they know they were starting something incredibly special. Almost 200 years later, Ceylon tea is highly prized and sought-after throughout the world, not just for its rich taste and aroma, but also for it's numerous health boosting qualities.

As well as being anti-viral, antibacterial and full of antioxidants, Green Ceylon tea assists in weight-loss by speeding up the metabolic process! In addition to this, it also has an anti-inflammatory effect which can help reduce joint and muscle pains and aid in reducing the risk or arthritis development.
