The story of Vintage tea begins with three men and a cricket ball...
Being pioneers in the tea industry, the three founders of Vintage teas felt it was time to venture out on their own. But, as with all success stories, it wasn't that simple.
From a make-shift office in the family home, to working nights on end, meeting deadlines, to securing adequate finance, the task was almost impossible.
It was fate that gave them an appointment with an ardent cricket enthusiast at the bank. He recognized Sriantha Rajapakse from his earlier days as a national cricketer and the rest as thes say, is history.
More employees joined in, the house was left behind and an office space was rented, and piece by piece the story of Vintage Tea slowly came together.
