...This is a breathtaking view of a tea factory in the middle of the most nicest landscape you can think of...green rolling hills filled with row after row of tea plants as far as the eye can see...with these unbelievable green colors.... after water the most widely-consumed drink in the world...
...I must say we Belgian are not traditionally tea drinkers,we much preferring coffee over tea... But I would love to taste teas known by exotic names such as Nuwara Eliya, Uva, Kandy,Uda Pussellawa, Dimbula and Ruhuna. Thanks a lot Ravindra!! (✿ ♥‿♥)
Tea production in Sri Lanka is of high importance to the Sri Lankan economy and the world market.The country is the world's fourth largest producer of tea and the industry is one of the country's main sources of foreign exchange.
The central highlands of the island, abundant rainfall, combined with sunshine, cold nights and mists and the level of humidity offered the perfect climate for producing high quality aromatic teas.
The very tall trees you see are Eucalyptus trees which are known for their deep roots. They are planted to prevent erosion.
And as usual with really lovely stamps!!
