I originally come from a tea country- Sri Lanka. The British, during the colonial time introduced it. The best is the high-grown tea which comes from the hill country. In the hot and humid climate people enjoy it very much. It runs through their veins! Drink it with milk and sugar or black with a piece of palm sugar, it is delicious. It is good as your bed tea, during your tea time with cake or cookies, after lunch to settle your stomach, after dinner to feel nice and any time in between when you are feeling happy, sad or.. just normal. I like a cup of tea first thing in the morning with milk and sugar.
