Liquid Green Tea: A Sri Lankan Innovation

On the surface it probably seems like liquid green tea products like ours are an exciting new innovation. After all, being able to make a great cup of tea just by adding water probably isn’t something you’ve experienced before.

But far from being a new-age trend, liquid green tea has been an important staple of one of the most important tea-drinking cultures for centuries. And chances are, you won’t have heard about it. So here’s what you need to know.

Green tea from Sri Lanka

To say Sri Lanka is a country fairly big on their tea would be an understatement of fairly totemic proportions. In fact, it’s the world’s second largest tea exporter, just a nudge behind China. For contrast, it’s worth remembering that China’s population is about sixty times the size of Sri Lanka. So it’s fair to say that their contribution is fairly disproportionate.

Sri Lanka, or Ceylon, as it was known under the British Empire, has been more traditionally associated with black tea than green. And true – whilst they make, drink and export significantly more black tea – a proud tradition in green tea cultivation remains an important part of the country’s history as well. In fact, the tea has been produced in Sri Lanka since the earliest records of tea itself.

Ceylon liquid green tea

Our liquid green tea sachets are based on an ancient Sri Lankan tradition of green tea consumption. We think there’s no finer country in the world from which to source our tea. In fact, we don’t just get our tea from there – we work closely with native specialists to make sure only the finest Sri Lankan tea leaves make their way into your sachet.

Made from Camellia Sinesis leaves, our liquid tea combines the best parts of modern convenience with the ancient tradition of Sri Lankan tea drinking. There’s never been a more convenient time to get all the great taste and health benefits of green tea into your diet today.
