A malty, mid-elevation ceylon gourmet tea in a delightful combination with the mildly bittersweet, aromatic flavor of Italian almond. A medium bodied tea with a wonderful fragrance & slightly sweet finish. Some years ago, Americans drank mainly ceylon tea, the world’s finest. Today, most brands are a multi-origin blend that is a mix of teas from several countries. Dilmah, new to the U.S, is the number one brand of authentic, garden fresh, single origin ceylon tea in over 98 countries, so it is fresher, richer & full of flavour. Discerning tea drinkers will recognise the difference in the very first sip. Packaged in Sri Lanka, within days of picking fresh leaf in the tea fields maximizes freshness, the key to antioxidants in tea. Founder Merrill J. Fernando is the most senior master tea taster today and his face appears on every pack of Dilmah tea, as his personal guarantee of the quality & freshness of Dilmah. Merrill & his two sons Dilhan & Malik (from whose names the brand name was coined) offer aficionados a truly different experience of tea. Ordinary teas have abandoned the centuries’ old “orthodox” method of manufacture for the fast track “CTC” (cut twist curl) process, to meet demand for a quicker brew from tea bags. This has sacrificed the character & real taste of tea. Dilmah stands firmly by traditional tea making methods, which explains why Dilmah tea tastes so different. Dilmah is the world’s first truly ethical tea. It is the only international brand name owned by tea growers. We pack our tea shelf ready, right where it is grown. Earnings therefore remain in Sri Lanka for the benefit of our workers.
