Ceylon Tea – From 1867

In 1867, James Taylor, Scottish by origin, planted 19 acres of tea in the city of Kandy in Ceylon, at the Loolecondera Estate as the first commercial tea plantation. The eventual sale of Loolecondera teas resulted in 1872, in Kandy and the first tea consignment to London in 1873.
