Dilmah was born of a simple tea grower’s vision. Merrill J. Fernando’s desire to share the pleasure in tea with the world, and to do so ethically by benefiting workers in the exploited tea industry, was the genesis of Dilmah Tea. More than four decades of struggle that Merrill invested in making his dream a reality, were rewarded with an unexpectedly powerful welcome from tea drinkers around the world.

Tea Inspired Challenges

Tea Mixology is about tea in drinks, tea gastronomy is about tea in food, and tea inspired is about anything… but it must have an element of tea in it. It is where tea infused masterpieces are brought to life. There is a tea for every moment, for every mood, and for every occasion. There is a tea for every fruit, vegetable and meat, a tea for every culinary style and a tea whose unique personality matches every person’s individual taste.

Dilmah’s Tea Inspired Challenges bring out and foster creativity, inspiration and magic in food, drink and aura when it comes to tea, creating a world where tea is revolutionised and pushed beyond the rim. Inspire all of us at Dilmah, and we’ll inspire you in return with prizes and rewards at the heart and soul of tea.
