Brewing Ambition: A celebration of 75 years of friendship & skills between Sri Lankans & Australians

Celebrating the 75-year-old friendship between Sri Lanka and Australia!

Since 1985, a cup of Dilmah Ceylon tea has been fostering this special connection, transforming a tea maker’s vision into an unbreakable bond between two nations. To commemorate this remarkable milestone, we raised our cups at the Australia House in Colombo at a special feast prepared by Chef Peter Kuruvita and the talented chefs-in-training from Dilmah Tea’s Empower Culinary School. Steeped in the essence of the world’s finest pure Ceylon tea and enriched with Sri Lanka’s superfoods like Gotukola and Jackfruit, it was an evening filled with nurturing aspirations and deepening bonds of friendship!


Sri Lankan family tea company Dilmah, was established by Merrill J. Fernando to bring quality, Single Origin Ceylon Tea, garden fresh and unblended, to tea drinkers around the world. His Dilmah Tea brand was the first genuinely ethical tea brand, bringing a smile to the faces of the underprivileged in Sri Lanka, whilst giving consumers quality, authenticity and natural goodness in their cup of tea.
