Dilmah is no ordinary tea, it is a brand that is founded on a passionate commitment to quality and

authenticity in tea. Tea perfection is found in a cup served hot, fragrant and delicious, chilled or

sparkling over ice, or as a rich Dilmah t-shake. Whether taken hot or iced, these teas are designed to

help people relax, invigorate and d enhance life.

“For centuries, problems of man-kind have been solved over a cup of tea. Whether they were

problems between nations, amongst businesses, even in families, between husbands and wives, tea

has been the soothing balm that helped their solution. The simple act of pouring a cup of tea is in

itself an ice-breaker, providing pleasurable anticipation of the goodness that t is to follow. I have

dedicated over 60 years of my life towards providing that cup, not only to solve problems but to add

sunshine, to our day with every sip of Dilmah.” said Merrill Fernando.
