    From my understanding, these were originally developed for the American market in the late 1800 or early 1900s, as an inexpensive alternative to the popular Japanese green teas. They seemed to do quite well for themselves for a period of time, and then dropped out of view entirely. They are still produced, but are now looked on as a novelty item…

    After World War II, Ceylons became a top seller in the United States, but as a black tea rather than a green… can anyone shed any light on why this happened?
