We recently worked with celebrity chef and long-time Dilmah ambassador Peter Kuruvita to introduce Dilmah’s excellent new Ceylon Green Tea range to Aussies, with a tea gastronomy event.
Dilmah built a shiny new green tea factory on its home soil in Sri Lanka, so we could have access to quality, ethically sourced green tea. To help spread the word, we invited media and influencers to a special lunch event at Pullman Hotel Circular Quay hosted by Peter. We were joined by the likes of The Jugernauts, Better Homes and Gardens, Simon Food Favourites and Australian Women’s Weekly.
Peter created four tasty dishes infused with Dilmah’s new green tea varieties to bring the flavour up a few notches, matched with glasses of Dilmah tea. We munched our way through mini lamb pies infused with Moroccan mint green tea, green tea with lemongrass kokoda, green tea with jasmine pickle and kingfish sashimi and Ceylon green tea onigiri with salmon pearls.
While we treated our tastebuds, Peter talked about the new green tea range and the things that set Dilmah apart, like how they help thousands of Sri Lankans every year with their MJF Charitable Foundation and their commitment to producing sustainable, ethical and single-origin tea.
