OUR HISTORY
James Steuart
(1790- 1870)
George Steuart
(1808-1896)

Established in 1835 by brothers James and George Steuart, George Steuart & Company stands proud today as the oldest mercantile establishment in Sri Lanka. In its span of nearly two centuries George Steuart & Company has made immense contributions to establish Sri Lanka as one of world's foremost producers of finest quality teas.

The company has paid great attention to maintaining its distinction from the rich British traditions it finds its roots in, a testament of which is the company's dedication to preserving the artistry of tea making, exacting the standards of the British Empire and its aristocratic flair blended with the signature goodness of pure Ceylon tea.

A SINGLE ORIGIN TEA renowned the world over for its excellence, sourced from the lush tea gardens of the hill country where handpicked tea buds and leaves are transformed into the aromatic indulgence that is "Steuarts Tea". Vivaciously full-bodied, distinctly flavoured, and abundant in nutrients, Steuart Teas hark back to that era when Ceylon tea delighted the senses of the British noblemen.

Savour a cuppa' history with us if only because no one knows a cup of tea like Steuarts teas, the original 'Ceylon Tea' people.
