Dilmah is unique - a brand that is founded on a passionate commitment to quality and authenticity in tea. It is also a philosophy that goes beyond commerce in seeing business as a matter of human service. The brand strongly believes in sustainable tea production.

Tea is Nature's gift to mankind. A beverage that heals, protects and refreshes, it is also infinite in variety, changing subtlety with the natural alchemy of sunshine, soils, wind, rain and temperature. This beautiful variety in tea is as much a challenge as a deliciously indulgent reward for whilst nature gives us a tea to suit every mood and desire, she demands expertise in understanding and selecting the finest. That expertise can only come from passionate commitment to tea.

Dilmah’s founder, Merrill J. Fernando, declared his commitment to tea when in the 1950s he devoted his life to tea. Four decades later he was joined by his two sons, Dilhan and Malik (after whom he named his Dilmah Tea) who share his passion. Today, sixty years on, Merrill and his sons have acquired the expertise to grow tea, pack and offer consumers around the world only the finest.
