Dilmah Tea Review




When I think of tea and tea drinkers images from movies past race through my mine. Royalty and high class socialites sitting proper, straight backed and slowly dipping repetitiously the tea bag again and again in a beautiful china cup. When I was a child I thought tea was only for the sophisticated to enjoy and as I grew older I became very fond of it and you will always find different flavors and varieties in my pantry.

I had the wonderful pleasure to review for Dilmah Tea. Founder Merrill J. Fernando has dedicated the last 60 years to his love and passion for tea. His journey started in the 1950's, and in 1988 founded the company name of Dilmah Tea. His goal was to bring back the traditional process of tea, something that has been lost by big corporations. With his two sons by his side I believe he has accomplished this goals ten times over. "My family cares for your tea, from the tea nursery right to your teacup".

Ceylon Green Tea with natural Lemon Grass Leaves and Ceylon Supreme Tea are the two I had the pleasure of tasting. I have to say they both are fantastic but my favorite would have to be the Ceylon Green Tea with natural Lemon Grass Leaves. I was instantly amazed as soon as I removed the tea bag from the individual foil wrapping. The aroma from just the tea bag was pure and delicious and had piqued my interest. The flavor is unlike anything I have tasted before in a tea. It is remarkably clean. Some teas leave a bitter taste I find, but not this tea. It's so smooth and the notes of the lemon grass make it very delightful. I have found a new brand of tea and can not wait to try other flavors.



Important to mention:

"Dilmah is the world's first truly ethical tea. Dilmah is the only international brand owned by tea growers. We pack our tea shelf ready, right where it is grown. Earnings remain in Sir Lanka for the benefit of the workers, the community & the future of our industry. Multinational traders import tea from several different countries & pack multi-origin blends overseas, denying growers a fair return for their labor. In the hands of traders, tea is just a commodity, blended for price & not for quality! Our mission is to offer you the freshest & finest tea and bring our workers hope of a better future. Please read about our social justice programs at www.mjffoundation.org"

This tea does sound great! I should've applied for this one, the lemongrass one sounds wonderful! I haven't been drinking as much tea so I thought I'd pass on that one, but now so regret it!

I do the same thing! When I see pretty tea cups I think of the Queen.

You do make this tea sound like a must have. The lemongrass sounds lovely. (See? It even makes me talk like the Queen.) hee hee

As a true Southerner, I drink my tea iced with lots of sugar!

Thanks for following my blog. I'm so glad to find your beautiful, girly blog!
