word on the street


I´d been drinking Dilmah for a few years in Australia and since moving to Thailand have had some unpleasant mornings when I haven´t been able to buy it and forced to drink other brands. Luckily though I can now usually buy it at Rimping.

While I started buying it because it is a far better tea than anything else available, I also prefer to buy brands that are not exploitative and send profits back to workers and communities. I knew that Dilmah was a Sri Lankan company so that was positive but thrilled to have read more on the website about your foundation and philosophy for a more just, sustainable and localised economic order. So happy that my beliefs and my taste buds are well matched!

Congratulations, Kate

Thank You

Today I went back into my already opened box of 100 tea bags of Dilmah Earl Grey. As you know there are two packets of 50 bags and having used your brand for years since finding it on my supermarket shelves, I didn't look too closely at whatever else was written on the box. which is my favourite tea. Imagine my surprise when I found a small white box containing a beautiful clay terracotta elphant figurine insead. It truly brought a smile to my face especially when I saw its raised trunk to bring me luck.
I have recently moved from Australia to Italy and purchased many boxes of Dilmah Earl Grey to ship here. Another wonderful surprise, I can find my favourite Dilmah Earl Grey tea here in Emilia Romagna!
I always start and finish my day with a cup of your tea and wish to say "Thank you Dilmah for bringing an additional smile to my day!"

Dear Mr Fernando

My order arrived yesterday for the Seasonal Flush Special Tea! I am delighted with the flavour of the tea and I know it will be gone way too fast. Thank you for contacting me about this opportunity the tea adds to the start of every day immeasurably.

Your tea cannot be replaced with any other brand.
Thank you again,

A blissful tea experience

I was supposed to let you know what I thought about the new Green Tea that you supplied me with, to replace the Chinese tea, but I got a little distracted…. Anyway, I would like to say it is one of (if not) the best Green Teas I have tried. Honestly, I have not enjoyed Green Tea this much since trying good Japanese Green Tea.
It is outstanding and exceeded expectations with its freshness while the difference in quality, when compared with the Chinese product, is clearly evident. You have definitely ‘sold’ me on your new product and I will continue to purchase it.
Thank you very much.

I fell in love with Dilmah Organic Rooibos

I am a 20 year old living in Ashburton, New Zealand. Over the last few months I have acquired a taste for Rooibos. Initially, I used to drink Rooibos with milk and sugar but now I take it sans milk or sweeteners. Recently I bought a pack of Dilmah Organic Rooibos Tea and thought that I had to give it a try.
Dilmah Organic Rooibos Tea is a great product because of the antioxidants, minerals and the health benefits associated with it. It is refreshing too. Since the Dilmah Organic Rooibos Tea product is caffeine-free, it is a good substitute for coffee and tea. I can go on to drink many cups of Rooibos.

An exceptional product

During a trip, I bought Dilmah Exceptional Ceylon Pekoe Valley of Kings. Back home in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I was extraordinarily surprised to find the material of the bag or pouch, (as we call it here) as I had never seen anything like that so far. Incredible texture!!
Excellent, excellent, excellent!! I will be very attentive to buy it again on my next trip. Congratulations on providing extraordinary quality!!
