Ceylon Tea was promoted at a “Tea Festival” organized by the Royal Botanical Garden in Burlington, Ontario, in partnership with the Consulate General of Sri Lanka in Toronto and the Tea Association of Canada, held on 4th - 5th November at the Royal Botanical Garden in Burlington.
Ceylon Tea samples from the regions of Dimbula, Nuwara Eliya, Kandy, Uva, Uda Pussellawa, Ruhuna and Sabaragamuwa were displayed and hot tea from the above regions was served to all the visitors during the two day event.
