Ceylon vs Darjeeling Tea: A Comparison of Flavor and Origins

Ceylon tea and Darjeeling tea are both types of black tea, but they come from different regions and have distinct flavor profiles.

Ceylon Tea

Ceylon tea is grown in the highlands of Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon. It is known for its bright, full-bodied flavor and golden color. Ceylon tea is often described as robust, refreshing and well-balanced, with notes of citrus and spices.

Darjeeling Tea

Darjeeling tea, on the other hand, is grown in the Darjeeling region of West Bengal, India. It has a muscatel flavor, with notes of fruit and flowers, and a light golden color when brewed.

Darjeeling tea is often referred to as the “champagne of teas” due to its unique flavor and aroma.
