The word ‘Ceylon’ is normally associated with quality black tea made by the orthodox or traditional method. Green Ceylon tea is less well known. All the same, Sri Lanka exported slightly more than 3,000 tonnes of the latter in 2010. While this was only about a hundredth of the quantity of black tea exported the same year, the reputation for quality enjoyed by Ceylon Tea has quickly come to be shared by the green product as well as the black. The Ceylon green tea industry, though young, is growing rapidly as its products attract a following among the tea-drinking nations of the world. Currently, the main export markets for green Ceylon Tea are the Middle East and the countries of the former Soviet Union, though sales are also growing in Europe, North America and East Asia. In Sri Lanka, too, a taste for green tea is rapidly spreading.

"Green tea is a widely consumed beverage and its origins date back thousands of years in China. The legendary Chinese emperor, Shen Nung, discovered the detoxifying and health-maintaining properties of green tea around 2700 B.C. In recent years, green tea is being widely studied for its beneficial effect in treatment and prevention of human diseases. It is considered to be anti-inflammative, anti-oxidative, anti-mutagenic, and anti-carcinogenic and can prevent cardiac disorders."
