Basilur Tea
Basilur is based out of Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon), with distributors in the USA, South Korea, Russia and Kazakhstan. The company began in 1867, when a superintendent of a coffee plantation decided to plant 20 acres of tea to help the company diversify. Within 25 years, tea production had increased from several pounds a season to almost 23,000 tons, and Ceylon was on the map as a major tea producer. Today, Sri Lanka is the 3rd largest tea-producing country in the world. Because Basilur tea is packed right where the tea is grown, it is always fresh. The company places a high value on quality--from plucking to fermenting to tasting and sorting--they set the standard for the best quality tea around the world.
