Terroir, the sense of place, is the single most important reason why tea is a herb that should be savoured rather than simply drunk. It is in savouring in fine tea the profound influence of Nature which crafts every aspect of tea, its purity and the diversity of tea grown in different valleys, on hills and mountains, each defined with wonderful complexity by the fingerprint of Nature.
Dilmah Tea Club
‘I DEVOTED MY LIFE TO TEA’
“The story of my Dilmah began in 1988. I was then a small tea grower with big dreams, I wanted to bring my country’s tea – the finest in the world – garden fresh and ethically produced, direct to tea lovers around the world. I had to compete with giant multinational brands; many said that mine was an impossible dream. But loyal tea drinkers around the world have made my dream a reality. Today, two and a half decades later, my sons Dilhan and Malik have joined me in my mission. My vision is to bring you tea of the highest quality. Tea that is fresh – rich in flavour and natural goodness – and at the same time to give workers and my country a fairer deal. I pledged to make my business a matter of human service.”
