What is Single Origin Tea?
Single Origin means from one source or origin. Not mixed or blended with teas from other countries. Single Origin guarantees the highest quality and freshest teas. Dilmah teas are Single Origin teas.
What is 100% Pure Ceylon Tea?
When a pack states 100% Pure Ceylon tea, it means that the tea is entirely from Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and is not mixed with teas from other countries. 100% Pure Ceylon tea from Dilmah is your guarantee of the finest tea.
Why Traditional Manufacture?
Traditional manufacture which includes handpicking the tea leaves, withering, rolling, fermentation, drying and then sorting ensures that the taste and character of the tea is preserved. Dilmah makes tea the traditional way -a process perfected over centuries.
Why pack teas at Source?
By packing teas at source we ensure that our teas are fresh. When teas are shipped and stored in warehouses for months, they lose their freshness. Fresh tea tastes better and the character of the tea is preserved.
Matchmaking with tea
Tea is wonderful on its own. But, paired with the right food, it becomes something quite exceptional. Try some tea matchmaking with your cup of Dilmah -the finest Single Origin tea. You'll discover that you're a dab hand at it. We'll help you with some suggestions to start with.
Ceylon Gold dark and spicy
The combination of the strong, medium bodied, high elevation tea in Dilmah Ceylon Gold creates an interesting flavour match with spicy meat, green curry, samosas and curry puffs as well as with decadently dark chocolate.
