At the fair, varieties of ‘Ceylon tea’ were displayed and sold to visitors after describing their unique origins and quality. Samples of tea were given to taste along with Sri Lankan snacks associated with tea, encouraging many visitors to the stalls to savor and purchase the tea. The Sri Lankan companies were able to find several buyers and make connections with local and international exhibitors and other tea-related entities at the exposition.
