The Colombo Tea Traders’ Association Chairman Anselm Perera said that Sri Lanka will once again commence exporting tea to Iran.

He stated that this will be from November. Iran was the second largest buyer of Sri Lankan tea importing 50 million kilograms per year which amounted to $350 million in revenue.

US sanctions on Iran were lifted last month and Perera said that they are similarly optimistic that the political issues in Russia too will clear, soon opening out this market once again.
