The Wily Scot and the Talaivar.

– posted by Ian Gardiner in the History of Ceylon Tea Website Discussion Forum on Jun 15, 2009

At the Radella Club bar one day, in 1963, Jimmy Stewart told me this story in his inimitable way:

His Talaivar (boss) had advised him that the workers were dissatisfied with the free tea supplied to them; they demanded B O P. Jimmy Stewart had a bright idea and told the Talaivar to report to the factory the next day. When the Talaivar arrived at the factory the next day he was ushered in to the factory office where stood the Dorai in front of teas prepared for tea tasting. He was then told by the Dorai to taste the samples and select the one he wanted the workers to have. This he did, and picked the one his palette was used to . . . . . which was the "dust", their standard issue.
