Sri Lanka sending tea to Australia

6:03 am on 12 January 2011

Sri Lanka is wending a donation of tea to cheer up flood victims in Queensland.

Officials said the tea, enough to make a quarter of a million cups, is to thank Australians for helping Sri Lanka in the past, particularly after the 2004 tsunami.

Sri Lanka also has major flooding in which at least nine people have died.
