The entire assortment of tea of our brands is produced and packaged in Sri Lanka from selected high-quality batches of tea leaves, as evidenced by the Lion with a Sword logo on each pack.
The logo “Lion with a sword”, printed on the packaging of Ceylon tea, not only indicates the country of origin of tea, but also is an indicator of high quality.
Sri Lanka Tea Council is the legal owner of the Lion with Sword logo, which has been registered in many countries around the world. The presence of the logo “Lion with a sword” on the packaging of Ceylon tea means:
- The Lion with a Sword logo is used only on consumer packaging of Ceylon tea, with only certain quality varieties.
- The packages contain 100% pure Ceylon tea.
- Tea stamps with the logo “Lion with a Sword” are packaged in Sri Lanka. Foreign tea companies (with production outside of Sri Lanka) cannot put the Lion with a Sword logo on their tea packaging, even if the raw materials for production are 100% Ceylon.
- Brands bearing the logo “Lion with a Sword” on packaging meet the quality standards set by the Sri Lanka Tea Council. The Lion with a Sword logo is the guarantor of the quality of pure Ceylon tea.
- The taste and aroma of Ceylon tea is as characteristic and unique as the climate and geographical features in which it grows. In Sri Lanka, seven major agro-climatic zones of tea cultivation are recognized, and each of them is able to offer tea connoisseurs various variations of its properties to satisfy their demanding taste: Nuwara Eliya, Uda Poussellava, Dimbula, Uva, Kandy, Ruhuna, Sabaragamuva.
