The expressiveness of a good Cabernet Sauvignon can be experienced in this dark brown tea. It tastes round, full, almost muscular, and juicy, with elements of ever so slightly sweet - spices and bayleaf. Very restoring indeed. And, like a good Cabernet, with a long, harmonious finale. Low Grown (upto 1,000 feet above sea level). Heavy, robust and deep in colour. In the style of Cabernet Sauvignon! From the Dilmah Watte series which features teas from the four main growing areas of Ceylon Tea, at varying altitudes from the low grown Yatawatte, mid grown Medawatte, high grown Udawatte and from the highest altitude, Ranwatte.
Single Origin 100% Pure Ceylon
Dilmah is entirely grown, handpicked and packaged in Ceylon (Sri Lanka), producer of the world's finest tea. Single origin explains why Dilmah s fresher, richer and full of flavor. Discerning tea drinkers will recognize the distinct difference in the very first sip.
Packaged at the Source, Garden Fresh and All Natural
Packaged in Sri Lanka within days of picking fresh leaf in the tea fields, maximizes freshness, the key to antioxidants in tea.
Ordinary teas have abandoned the centuries old "orthodox" method or manufacturing for the fast track CTC (cut twist curl) method to meet demand for a quicker brew from tea bags. This sacrifices the character and real taste of tea. Dilmah stands firmly by traditional tea making methods, which explains why Dilmah tea tastes different.
Unlike mass-market brands that can be a mixture of tea from up to 30 different countries, Dilmah is what connoisseurs call a Single Origin tea. Dilmah comes from a single source, the fabled tea gardens of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), home of the world's finest teas.
In an era of heavily promoted megabrands, bankrolled by giant corporations with huge advertising budgets, quality suffered as blended teas became the only tea consumers could buy. (The word blended sounds deceptively innocent; when you buy a blended tea, you're getting a mixture of teas from multiple sources to reduce cost.)
It was time for the return of real tea. In 1988, Merrill J Fernando launched Dilmah, Single Origin 100% Pure Ceylon Tea. The brand was named after Merrill's 2 sons: Dilhan and Malik, who were toddlers when the brand was lanched. Today, they run the business along with Merrill.
Dilmah superior artisanal tea is still made the old-fashioned way. Dilmah still hand-pick the two tender leaves enclosing a bud, because that's where the full, palate-pleasing flavor of tea is concentrated. And Dilmah tea is packed at the source in Sri Lanka, within days of harvesting, for maximum freshness. Dilmah's unconditional guarantee of freshness means you'll get more of the antioxidants in tea.
Dilmah is the world' first fully-integrated family tea company. Dilmah grows tea on the verdant slopes of Sri Lanka's mist-shrouded hill country, package it in-house and market it under their brand, dispensing with middlemen.
Not only is Dilmah the finest tea on earth, it the also the world's first Ethical Tea. Earnings from Dilmah remain in Sri Lanka, are shared with workers and the community and reinvested to help make tea a sustainable crop.
