EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative image captures the essence of tea picking culture in Ceylon or India during the late 1800s. The photograph, taken around the 1880s to 1890s, presents a scene of ethnic diversity and tradition as indigenous people, dressed in colorful clothing, carefully pick tea leaves from the lush, green plantation. The laborers, with their focused expressions and determined postures, convey the hard work and dedication required to produce the coveted beverage. The 19th century was a pivotal time in tea production, as the demand for this popular drink continued to rise in Europe and North America. Ceylon, now known as Sri Lanka, and India emerged as major producers, with their unique terroir and climate contributing to the distinctive flavors of their tea. This ethnographic photograph offers a glimpse into the lives of the people who played a crucial role in the tea industry during this era. Their ethnicity and cultural practices are on full display, adding depth and context to the history of tea production. The image also serves as a reminder of the rich cultural heritage that continues to influence the industry today. As we admire the beauty and intrigue of this vintage photograph, we are transported back in time to an era when tea was not just a beverage, but a symbol of tradition, culture, and human connection.
