Explore the History of Ceylon Tea

The history of Ceylon tea is a rich and complex one. It is the very embodiment of the human spirit; of courage, and of innovation and tenacity. It is also the embodiment of the proverbial blood, sweat and tears. It’s a history that literally shaped the destiny of a little island nation, and its direct and indirect influence, is widespread even to this day. This website is a tribute to this great industry and to the men who fostered it. From the intrepid pioneers, to the numerous figures of legend along the way, and from all those whose toils sprouted an awe-inspiring industry for the ages.
