While walking the tea plantation where we stayed in Sri Lanka, we met up with these lovely ladies at the end of their work day.
This is where they gather after they've picked their tea leaves. A large hanging scale is used to weigh what they've brought in from the fields.
"The first tea bushes of commercial quantity were planted in Sri Lanka by James Taylor, at Loolecondera Estate in Lower Hewaheta in the Kandy district, in 1867. Since then, following the coffee blight in the mid 1800s, all of the coffee which was grown in the mid and high grown district has been replaced with tea." (forbesteaportal.com)
My favorite treat at the end of the day is a cup of tea and dark chocolate. This pairing is Green & Black's Organic Dark Chocolate and Ginger along with Celestial Seasonings Antioxidant Supplement Green Tea. No day is complete without a little treat.
Sending blessings your way for a bright and beautiful day. Tammy
