The Teamaker's Private Reserve is an eclectic collection of rare, fine teas celebrating the variety, the individuality and the spectrum of taste and aroma that only teamakers know and relish. Each handpicked by Merrill J. Fernando, Founder of Dilmah, they are chosen to present the indulgent pleasure in tea, bringing together some very special teas, limited in availability, some rare and all representing the finest teas in the world.
Dilmah tea had made a mark with its fresh, single origin, 100% pure Ceylon tea. However, we needed to produce something spectacular to celebrate 25 years infused in the goodness of Dilmah tea. To explore its diverse varieties whilst remaining true to its origins, and giving this 5000 year old herb a touch of the 21st century whilst embracing the time of its ancestors. Introducing the Silver Jubilee Gourmet range was a fitting celebration for the tapestry of tea Dilmah has woven across, over two decades. Revel in the flavours of Blood Orange & Eucalyptus, Mandarin & Marzipan Pekoe and Pure Darjeeling Single Region Tea.
The Dilmah WATTE(meaning estate) series represents the unique qualities of select tea gardens in the four primary Ceylon Tea growing regions: Ran Watte(peak elevation), Uda Watte(high elevation), Meda Watte(mid elevation) and Yata Watte(low elevation). The unique aspects of a place - climate, soil and topography - influences and shapes the tea made there and gives it a specific personality, much like terroir in wine.
A tea for every occasion. Dilmah t-Series presents a collection of teas that are known around the world only for their excellence. Teas so different that there is a tea for every mood. The range presents a vast array of designer gourmet teas including Very Special Rare Tea like the Ceylon Silver Tips and Seasonal Flush. The Seasonal Flush by t-Series is a tea so rare that it is produced only as a result of a seasonal phenomenon that occurs twice a year.
True lovers of tea know that together with an explosion of flavours, pure tea bursts in colour, painting its own story in the process. Through this, its character, personality and vibrance is portrayed forging a connection of sorts between the drinker and the tea. Believing in the potential and versatility of tea, Dilmah wanted to enhance this connection and through this, the Vivid range came into being. A gallery of new teas exploding with new flavours such as Ceylon Tea with Pomegranate, Springtime Chocolate Mint and Gentle Minty Green Tea were some of the delights introduced to the world.
The Dilmah Exceptional teas and infusions offer handpicked teas and herbal infusions which are selected for their quality, fragrance and character. Gourmet Ceylon black and green teas, herbal infusions in deliciously different combinations. All are exceptional, forming together a contemporary and indulgent selection that fuse the 5,000 year history of tea and herbs with 21st century taste and style.
The specialty tea selection includes the popular Ceylon Supreme, English Breakfast, English Afternoon, Earl Grey, Irish Breakfast and Darjeeling. Dilmah provides exclusively authentic, traditional real tea. The speciality selections bring back the original taste profiles which made these teas famous. Each Speciality tea has its own distinctive taste and character.
Well known Food & Beverage Writer, Fiona Beckett had this to say in THE TIMES; "DILMAH Earl Grey tea is the best I've ever tasted - and the strong Breakfast Tea and Afternoon Tea are good, too." - The Times, London 20th October, 2001
Grown high in the pristine central highlands of ancient Sri Lanka, arguably one of the best tea-growing regions on earth. Created with traditional and sustainable methods, our green tea leaves are hand-picked to ensure they remain free from impurities and their natural goodness is in every cup.
Teas and infusions as nature intended. Dilmah Organic –the taste of
nature. Dilmah Organic is produced in harmony with nature free from
synthetic pesticides and fertilizer. Taste the pure, natural flavoursof
our organic teas, herbal infusions and fruit infusions.
Our new Infusions have a beautiful combination of the elegance of spices, herbs and their amazing functional ability. If you consider turmeric, as an example, in its combination with ginger with a little hint of chocolate and almond, it creates a healthy and spellbinding beverage, whether you take it hot or iced. It’s also amazing in terms of its chemo-protective properties - the natural goodness that both the turmeric and the gingerroot in particular offer. Then, beyond that, taking traditional favourites, Bergamot which is the essence and foundation of Early Grey and combining it with Peppermint provides a beautiful explosion of taste. Green Rooibos with Coconut and Mango – a combination of tropical flavours, richness and creaminess of the coconut, balanced by the sweet softness of the mango, combined with the lightly nutty Green Rooibos, creates more than a beverage; it creates a memory.
The entire range is elegant in terms of its clarity and brightness and is beautifully rich, both in its taste and fragrance.
Dilmah's relentless commitment to delivering the best tea to the world has seen the company take over five years to develop a premium Iced Tea using tea leaves grown and handpicked from the family tea gardens in Sri Lanka. The result is a great tasting range of authentic and ethical Iced Teas, which are also a natural source of antioxidants.
The Dilmah Tea Cordial is made from fresh tea, & not from teas which had been processed several months ago. It is the only tea concentrate made with 100% Pure Ceylon Tea, sourced from a single estate. The fresh tea is converted to a high quality concentrate within hours of harvesting. It is made at a state of the art, ISO 9001: 2008 & ISO 22000:2005 certified manufacturing facility based on the family Tea garden where the Black tea is produced. This helps lock in the freshness, goodness and the real taste of garden fresh, single estate Ceylon Tea.
It is often said that at the heart of gastronomy is the harmony of flavours on the tongue. It is with this principle in mind that the selection of Dilmah Fun Teas was crafted. Each tea is designed to offer a taste experience that is as pleasurable as it is authentic and functional.
Finely balanced richness, flavour, strength and aroma for the perfect
tea. Tea perfect for everyday drinking from the central highlands of Sri
Lanka, reputed for its brightness and medium strength. Introduces tea
lovers to the romance of real Ceylon tea.
Ceylon Silver Tips, commonly known as White Tea, is a very rare Ceylon tea, entirely handmade and extremely limited in production- just a few hundred kilos per year. Understandably, it is one of the most expensive teas. Because of this, most of the white teas offered around the world are adulterated; sometimes containing less than 2% of white tea. Dilmah White tea is Real White Tea offering consumers the subtle and very refined experience of this exclusive beverage.
White Tea is the delicate, tender bud of two leaves and the bud, which provide good quality in tea. It is about 3cm in length and white in its appearance. We call it Silver Tips in Sri Lanka.
Its price is accordingly unique as white tea is a limited edition product. Silver Tips is velvety to the touch and produces a pale liquor tinged with yellow - very delicate and subtle in flavour. A rare, sophisticated indulgence!
