Sri Lanka has extraordinary year with tea prices.
Sri Lanka has had an extraordinary year with prices for “Ceylon Tea” moving on its own and seemingly out of sync with the rest of the world.
Sri Lanka’s exclusive range of orthodox black teas attracted strong demand throughout the year even as some of the key markets such as Russia, Iran, Syria, Libya, the Middle East, Egypt, and Kenya are in turmoil.
Even though figures indicate a good year for Tea Production, the lack of predictability of distribution monthly has resulted from unstable ‘money markets’ and extreme weather.
However, indications are that we may witness another record breaking Sri Lanka production in 2015.
