Description : Bitter Berry Bondage

This is a story that needs to be told. Throughout the present century Ceylon has been renowned for its tea. On 22 May 1972 Ceylon was officially renamed Sri Lanka but as cash matters more than sentiment the country’s main foreign exchange earner continues to be marketed as “Ceylon Tea.” Until Independence on 4 February 1948, and in the decades that followed, Ceylon’s image abroad has been that of “Tommy Lipton’s tea garden.” The legend nurtured by chauvinist British journalists and writers was that Tommy Lipton, the grocer’s boy from Glasgow came to Ceylon in the last century and said “We could grow tea here” — and did so very successfully. The sun has now set both on the British Empire and on Lipton’s empire within the Empire, but Ceylon and tea, remain synonymous.
