In tea land!

As you drive through the winding highway and approach the highlands of Sri Lanka, all you see left and right are endless fields of tea.

So we decided to visit a tea factory and plantation and learn more about the drink many of us love. Here are some fun facts about tea:

– Black, green, and white tea all come from the same plant.

– Plants can be as old as 60 years.

– if the plants were not cut every 5 years or so, they would grow to be 10m trees!

– Black tea is the only one that is fermented through oxydization.

– White tea is sundried.

– Tea leaves are sorted by size and colour. The small the tea, the stronger the taste.
