BY the time the clocks go back, I’ve usually had my first cold of the year, my proper coat is on and I do not leave the house without an umbrella. And with no Indian summer this year to ease us in gently to the time change later this month, I was desperate for a blast of heat — so opted for Sri Lanka. Our former colony, off the southern tip of India, is a mecca for Brits seeking autumn and winter sun. I headed for historic fort town Galle, on the island’s south-west coast a few hours’ drive from capital city Colombo and its international airport. The influence of all the island’s settlers — the Dutch, Portuguese and British as well as the Chinese and visitors from the Arab world and Malaysia — makes the fortified town a reassuring blend of the familiar and the excitingly unknown.

I’ve never had a cup of it in my life, shudder at the aroma, wouldn’t touch coffee ice cream, or Kahlua or tiramisu or anything mocha. Yuk. But I need my caffeine and have grown to love tea, aptly known as “a hug in a cup.” So when recently in Charleston, I had to make a pilgrimage to the country’s only tea plantation, which sells tea under the American Classic Tea label. The Charleston Tea Plantation is the only place where tea is grown in North America. It’s actually on Wadmalaw Island, about a half hour south of Charleston. At the farm, my husband and I stepped into the greeting area, where we were directed to a tea bar for our choice of hot or iced teas.
