The finest tea in the world is produced in Sri Lanka. In spite of the change of name of the island in the year 1972, Sri Lanka's tea is still branded & marketed as Ceylon Tea. Ceylon tea, with its fine, rich flavor & bright golden color has no rival in terms of quality. Ceylon Tea remains a cornerstone of the economy of Sri Lanka, being second biggest export behind Garments. The cash crops of Tea, Rubber & Coconut continue to contribute 15% of the foreign exchange of the island.
