The School of Tea was conceived and designed by a family of Teamen, whose appreciation of tea is founded on a lifelong commitment to tea; that is the passion of Dilmah Founder Merrill J. Fernando, who devoted his life to tea. That commitment brings with it a unique and undiluted perspective on tea.
The School therefore aims also to inculcate respect for this ancient and delicious herb through a deeper understanding of its nature. Ultimately the knowledge that we would like to present at the Dilmah School of Tea is intended to share with tea aficionados around the world, the joys, the ethics and the healthfulness in tea. That means greater enjoyment of the richness, variety, flavour and antioxidants in tea in the home, in restaurants, cafes and hotels, serving fine, fresh tea with elegance and style, without compromising its taste, flavour or natural goodness.
