word on the street

Hi everyone

Just to let you know that I have recently bought your “White tea” here in New Zealand.

I find it superb!!!

It is bringing me back to drinking tea on its own, without milk or sugar.

The flavour is beautiful.

So, thank you for your work.

Kind regards

Hi, I first tasted Dilmah teabags in Durban @ the Holida inn - Umhlanga, and I will not go back to anoher brand. Fantastic product, keep up the good quality of your tea!

Dear Mr. Fernando and Family,

I’ve been drinking your delicious single leaf Ceylon tea for about five years now from when I first heard about it here in New Zealand. However, a few weeks ago, I was at my mother’s place and she offered me a different tea which I thought tasted quite nice.

Because funds have been very low, I decided recently to purchase this other brand instead of yours. Well, I can tell you, it just wasn’t up to the standard at all that you produce with your teas and I couldn’t wait to finish the box. At last I have finished it and now tucked away safe and sound in my Dilmah tea tin, is your tea again.

I’m writing to you because I want you to know that as an avid tea drinker I’m so grateful that there is a tea such as yours, and that there is a company with admirable high ethics and social responsibility behind it. I acknowledge you for making the stand for fair and just tea growing and trading, and for producing what I think is literally the best tea in the world.

In a world where there is so much pressure to make a buck that all too often ends up being at the cost of ethics and human value, your company shines out as one that truly cares for your fellow man.

I’m honoured to be drinking the tea that is a result of your commitment to “old-fashioned” growing and love.

With love and appreciation

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!!

Thank you for the tea!

Hello Mr Fernando,
I would like to thank you and your staff for wonderful Dilmah tea that I discovered in S. Petersburg, Russia.
My son and I love it so much.
Now I am a Dilmahgolic, it is simply the best tea in the world.
