Project HOCT is delighted to present an essay on the history of Ceylon tea written by former tea planter Monte Holsinger as a thesis for his Bachelor's Degree in Management in 2002. This well-researched document comprehensively captures the history of the plantation industry while also touching on the country's colonial past. Project HOCT is indeed grateful to Mr Holsinger for making it available to us and our readership.
