Black Tie International:
Global CeylonTea Party in Celebration of the
150th Anniversary of Ceylon Tea

Historic Ceylon Tea Party
 makes its way across the globe to New York

Diplomats, Journalists, business owners, traders and buyers flocked
to the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka in New York on 06th July 2017 to become a part of history as Sri Lanka celebrates 150 years of the Ceylon tea industry.  

The global Ceylon Tea Party spanning more than fifty cities in the world was held with the collaboration of the Sri Lanka Tea Board and the Colombo Tea Traders’ Association. The celebrations at the Mission premises in New York also featured a photo exhibition titled “The Story of Ceylon Tea” that included banner style story boards narrating the story of Ceylon Tea, beautiful Black &White prints of a bygone era and large colorful panels detailing the health benefits of tea.

 

The Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York
Ambassador Dr. Amrith Rohan Perera
in welcoming ambassadors and other guests noted that the Sri Lanka tea industry has the most developed marketing and value adding capacity amongst the tea producing countries in the world. Sri Lanka therefore, has the highest percentage of value added exports amongst all tea producers and has one of the most advanced and competitive auction centers that adds to the total value.

Sustainability, both environmental and social take pride of place. Sri Lanka tea industry adheres to almost all the international conventions, agreements and certifications related with the environment, including the Montreal Protocol to protect the Ozone layer. It is the first “Ozone Friendly” certified tea in the world, the ambassador also said.  

Dr. Perera also stated that North America is the world's most lucrative market for tea
 and that Ceylon Tea has a long relationship with the USA.

Gail Gastelu, the owner/publisher of The Tea House Times currently serving on the Tea Association of the USA's Specialty Tea Institute Advisory Board also spoke.
 Ms. Sonali Samarasinghe, Minister at the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka
to the United Nations moderated the event.

Guests queued up to taste different flavored teas from the various regions in Sri Lanka, flavored teas, iced tea, tea punch, tea biscuits, as well as other traditional food items. Guests were able to smell the aroma of Sri Lanka tea samples on display, view the gift teas and exhibits, experience the serenity of Sri Lanka’s cascading tea gardens, and learn about tea production from leaf to exhilarating cup. Background music during the tea party included popular Sri Lankan melodies.  One of the main features of the Global Ceylon Tea Party held in New York by the Permanent Mission was a whimsical Tea themed cake structure and conversation piece that stood out among other novel ideas such as
 edible centerpieces on the tables.     

 

Tea has been the flavor of month at the United Nations in New York due to the enthusiastic participation and organization of events by the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka to the United Nations in the months of May, June and July featuring Ceylon Tea. This included a week long exhibition and tea tasting at the United Nations in New York, participation in an international Bazaar organized by the UN and participation by Sri Lanka at the Le Salon du Café/Thé – an international tasting adventure, organized by the UN Correspondents Association (UNCA) in collaboration with the Arab Ladies Club at the UN (ALUN).

The Great Teas of Ceylon
The Great Teas of Ceylon
 
I like a nice cup of tea in the morning,
 For to start the day, you see!
 And at half past eleven,
Well my idea of heaven Is a nice cup of tea!
 

I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner,
And a nice cup of tea with my tea,
And when it's time for bed,
There's a lot to be said
 For a nice cup of tea!

Some folks put much reliance On politics and science;
There's only one hero for me!
Its praise we should be roaring,
 The man who thought of pouring
The first boiling water onto tea!


 I like a nice cup of tea in the morning,
For to start the day, you see!
And at half past eleven,
Well my idea of heaven Is a nice cup of tea!
 I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner,
And a nice cup of tea with my tea,

 And when it's time for bed,
There's a lot to be said For a nice cup of tea!
I like a nice cup of tea with my dinner,
And a nice cup of tea with my tea,
 And when it's getting late,
Almost anything can wait For a nice cup of tea!
