Ceylon is used not only in health but also in the beauty industry. It was as far back as the year 1824 in which the British brought a tea plant from China to Ceylon, now known as Sri Lanka. Ceylon tea is prized for its rich aroma and taste. It comes from the same tea plant as many of the most popular teas; however they all vary in taste, due to numerous factors including the oxidation process.
