Ceylon Tea was promoted at a “Tea Festival” organized by the Royal Botanical Garden in Burlington, Ontario, in partnership with the Consulate General of Sri Lanka in Toronto and the Tea Association of Canada, held on 4th - 5th November 2017 at the Royal Botanical Garden in Burlington.

Ceylon Tea samples from the regions of Dimbula, Nuwara Eliya, Kandy, Uva, Uda Pussellawa, Ruhuna and Sabaragamuwa were displayed and hot tea from the above regions was served to all the visitors during the two day event. Free Ceylon Tea samples, provided by the Sri Lanka Tea Board were distributed among almost 1000 participants.  Along with the Consulate General of Sri Lanka, 30 tea vendors and other private sector entities took part at the event.

By participating at the event, the Consulate General was able to create wider awareness among the participants on Sri Lanka's rich tea culture, health benefits, different flavours, processing techniques and presentation styles. A documentary on 150 years of Ceylon Tea was also screened at the event. Participants also had the opportunity to learn about history of tea including oolong tea and Tang dynasty tea, tea botany, modern tea cultivation, production practices, tea tasting, the art of pairing tea with chocolate, difference in Asian and Western ideas on tea as well as tea blogging. Sri Lankan and Chinese traditional dance performances also took place at the Festival. Sri Lankan traditional dance performed by Ms. Anudi Sirimanna of Rangara Performing Arts was among the highlights of the event.
