If you're looking for additional incentives to switch from your usual tea to Dilmah or to embark on a Ceylon tea adventure, here's why Dilmah stands as the preferred tea choice in New Zealand:

Handpicked from Our Own Tea Gardens

We are proud of our origin, where we meticulously hand pick the finest young buds from our very own tea gardens. Our Ceylon teas are grown exclusively in Dilmah's tea plantations in Sri Lanka. We don't blend our teas with others because we want each cup to offer you a pure and consistent taste, every single time.

A Heritage of Tea Expertise

At Dilmah, we've been cultivating tea for generations. The Fernando family, who own Dilmah, are experts in the field, and their tea knowledge is simply remarkable. They ensure that each tea cup remains a consistent delight. In fact, to maintain this high standard, we taste over 12,000 teas each week in order to select only the finest. Hence, you can trust that every sip is as exceptional as the last.



Specially Crafted for Kiwis

We've been part of New Zealand's tea journey for over 30 years, with a huge honour to be the Most Trusted Tea Brand in Zealand since 2016. We know that tea is more than a drink; it's your morning ritual, those cherished small moments, and the perfect companion for bonding with loved ones over a cuppa. Dilmah is here to continue brewing good moments for Kiwi families, just as you like it.



A Tea for Every Need, Including Bulk Tea Options

With a wide range of teas and packaging sizes to choose from, we cater to both individual buyers and those seeking to make bulk purchases. 

Dilmah teas are served in many NZ's top hospitality establishments, ranging from renowned hotels to cozy cafes and restaurants. We also provide bulk tea solutions suitable for businesses of all sizes. Our tea comes in various formats, including individual envelopes, premium pyramid tea bags, and luxurious loose leaf varieties, ensuring you find the ideal choice to elevate the tea experience at your establishment.

Dilmah is Sustainabili-tea

Tea isn't just about the brew, it's also about the community and nature we live in. 100% our tea bags are made from plant-based materials, and our innovative box designs reduce plastic usage, ensuring that we minimise our ecological footprint.

Choosing Dilmah teas means you're contributing to a meaningful cause. Dilmah is honored to sponsor and partner with impactful organizations in New Zealand, including Hospice NZ, Ronald McDonald House, the Cancer Society, and many others. 


With all good things from the above, we invite you to experience a better tea with Dilmah – after all, there's only one thing left to say: Do try it!
