In yet another ground breaking initiative, Dilmah, Sri Lanka’s most recognized international brand that produces finest and freshest Ceylon Tea, launched its exclusive t- Lounge concept in Delhi, India on July 20th 2016 at an event attended by its Founder, Merrill J. Fernando and his son, Dilhan C. Fernando.
Synthesizing with the ambience of the plush t- Lounge, conveniently located at Khan Market, is a wide variety of tea shakes, tea mocktails, iced teas ranging from exotic to regular for the Delhi tea drinkers; adventurous and discerning in their taste; wanting to try teas from different regions.
While the newly set up t-Lounge by Dilmah offers a unique tea experience for the tea lovers, the thoughtfully planned menu with crepes, waffles and cheesecakes as well as tea inspired dishes is intended to compliment this tea adventure whilst maintaining the casual, upscale mood inherent to the t-Lounge.
Dilmah’s popular t- Lounge concept was first propelled in 2003, and its t- Lounge in Chatham Street, Colombo was opened as Dilmah evolved in the area of tea gastronomy and pioneered many tea mixology and other dimensions in tea, in co-operation with chefs and mixologists.
Addressing the launch, Dilmah Founder Merrill J. Fernando said; “We are delighted with the warm and positive response that we have received in Delhi. For us, each t-Lounge is a culmination of extensive training and the research and development that we do at the Dilmah School of Tea along with several months of innovation with acclaimed chefs and mixologists who add their expertise to the mix that brings about the perfect cup of tea ensuring you are delighted with each sip. After Delhi, we will look at opening other outlets at selected locations in the country. We look forward to delighting many more tea lovers in India via the exclusive tea experience at our lounge.”
Meanwhile the Venue Partner from VTA Alliance Delhi, India for the t- Lounge by Dilmah, Ashumi Jain added; “Dilmah t-Lounge was a dream we had wanted to bring alive for over an year now. I love their tea range and the entire concept along with their attention to detail to every small element that goes into making this a wonderful experience for the customers. I approached them last year and things just moved forward at a rapid pace since then. The love, appreciation and positive feedback that we have received today with the opening of the Dilmah t-Lounge is encouraging and motivates us to go the extra mile in delighting our tea patrons.”
