Most histories of Ceylon Tea begin with the planters. But no less important to the flourishing of the enterprise were pioneers of a different sort: the ‘Tea Men’ the plantation agents, tasters, buyers, exporters and brokers of the Colombo trade.

At the centre of their story is the Colombo Tea Traders’ Association, the apex body of the Sri Lankan tea industry, for a Hundred and twenty five years, it has reliably served its dual function as an equal forum where all participants in the industry may obtain fair representation, and as the custodian of that great Sri Lankan commercial institution, the Colombo Tea Auctions.

This book is a history of the Association. From inception to the present day.
