"As the weather turns cooler, tea lovers everywhere relish the delights of full-bodied classics like the varieties offered in the Dilmah Gourmet Series," said Merrill J. Fernando, founder of Dilmah and widely acknowledged as the patriarch of the Ceylon tea industry. "Each of Dilmah's classic teas -- Earl Grey, English Afternoon, English Breakfast, Ceylon Supreme -- is created according to tradition and from decades of experience."
"My father had a dream to bring back the age-old growing, harvesting and curing techniques which had been squeezed out of the tea industry in favor of 'fast track' processes," Mr. Malik Fernando commented. "At the same time, he wanted to reward his growers and their families with a better deal for their work while investing in the community to make tea growing more sustainable. By packaging at source and through the activities of the MJF Foundation, we like to say that Dilmah goes beyond fair trade -- we call it 'Ethical Trade'."
