About Dilmah

Dilmah is a brand of tea. Dilmah was founded in 1988 by Merrill J. Fernando, and now has presences in many countries. Dilmah was founded as a producer-owned tea company, and packs its tea at the source, in contrast to most other large tea companies which blend and package them elsewhere.

In the U.S., Dilmah works with Cafe Verde, a company headquartered in Houston, TX.

Dilmah specializes in Ceylon tea (tea from Sri Lanka). The company sells flavored green teas in teabags, and sells white tea loose and in teabags. In addition, they sell single region loose teas, highlighting the differences in flavor and other qualities between different regions of Sri Lanka.

I actually like this one. Extremely mild and brews up rather pale...but the flavor is perfect for a Sri Lankan interpretation of Sencha.
I do not know the region/province this one was grown in, but unless stated otherwise on their packaging...Dilmah packages only Ceylon (ie the country/origin of Sri Lanka) teas.

This was my first venture into "low elevation" Ceylon tea.
Produces a deep ruby liquor, with a very rounded and balanced flavor with light but noticeable "cocoa" in the aroma and taste. Not even remotely bitter. Balanced is a good word for this strong (caffeine-wise) single estate black tea.

I did not like this at all - no matter what water temperature and brew length I used, the green tea had that oxidised 'fishy' taste. Substandard green tea.

One of my favorite Earl Grey teas that I take with me when I travel. It has such a nice aroma and clean, soothing taste. You still taste the Ceylon black tea base and aren't overwhelmed by the bergamot flavor.
