What You Need To Do

Enjoy Dilmah Tea paired with Warrior of Light

Create a short story and pair it with tea ​

Pair your story with the perfect pick from our wide range of teas and infusions. ​

Let’s give you an example – A backpacker on the last leg of her solo trip around the great cities of Africa suddenly finds herself pulled to Egypt where she learns that she is the reincarnated partner of an Ancient priest set on resurrection and ruling the world. ​

Smoke, gold decanters, sand dunes, falcons, opulence: this story would be best paired with Dilmah’s Ceylon Cinnamon Spice Tea from the t-Series range. ​

Snap a picture of your story laid next to a pack of your selected tea and submit both story as well as picture during your submission. ​​
