Single-estate tea from Dilmah Tea

Merrill J Fernando founded Dilmah Tea in 1988, vowing to "bring quality back to tea" after perceiving in the 1950s that tea had become a mere commodity traded by only a few large corporations.

One of the first Sri Lankans to have had the opportunity to be trained in tea, Fernando now aims to provide lovers of fine tea with a product "picked, perfected and packed" at origin.
