What Makes Our Teas Unique and Special?
We focus on providing exceptional teas by focusing on the elements that drive taste and emphasise the goodness of the tea, while ensuring that your cuppa serves a purpose to the world. Here’s what sets Dilmah Ceylon Tea above the rest.
Ceylon tea is undeniably unique in its taste. With tea originating from three different elevations; high, mid and low grown, each type is varied in their taste, colour, strength, aroma and texture due to the elusive elements that form the true quality in tea. The characteristics of Ceylon teas are heavily influenced by its terroir; and by nature, itself; from soil and wind conditions to moisture and precipitation levels. Dilmah is unique in maintaining an unwavering commitment to the integrity of origin.
Every sip of Dilmah Ceylon tea promises an exquisite taste and a rich goodness that comes from the commitment and passion to quality. We believe there is no better tea maker than nature and we nurture the terroir of each tea region by respecting the artisanal style of how it’s made. Ceylon tea is completely natural and rich in antioxidants, providing a wealth of benefits to the drinker.
