Colombo’s favourite place for tea-inspired relaxation and chats has undergone a makeover. Revitalised in the signature casually-elegant style is the t-Lounge by Dilmah at Arcade Independence Square. The formal re-opening of the Dilmah t-Lounge was held in the presence of Merill J Fernando, Founder, Dilmah, who was joined by Dilhan Fernando, CEO, Dilmah Tea Companies, and other guests.
The refurbished café has a stylish interior with a cosy ambience and offers an enticing array of tea-infused delicacies and fresh tea. Extra inspiration was instilled after Merrill J Fernando and guests at the event painted the t-logo in vivid colours as a musical flashmob burst into chorus. The Soul Sounds Academy Choir joined guests at the t-Lounge with a Dilmah-inspired rendition of ‘Tea for Two’.
“Dilmah Is Purely Taking The Message Of Quality To Consumers Who Are Aware Of Ceylon Tea As The World’s Finest.
Afternoon tea menu at the t-Lounge comprises an exclusive welcome drink Cuvée Ranwatte, accompanied by a range of savouries that includes Mediterranean Tuna Bruschetta, Arabian Eggplant Brushetta, Lamb Kofta Mini Burgers, Chicken & Mushroom Vol-au-Vents and Vegetable & Blue Cheese Roulades. Among the array of sweet choices are Vanilla Cupcakes, Baked Cheesecake Triangles, Double Chocolate Ganache Squares, Macaroons, Lemon Meringues and Orange & Cream Scones. Other beverages served include Coconut Chai and Blueberry & Clove Iced Tea.
Merrill J Fernando commented, “Dilmah is purely taking the message of quality to consumers who are aware of Ceylon Tea as the world’s finest. We take that product, freshly packed and priced correctly, to the consumers making Dilmah the world’s only ethically-produced brand of tea. All these concepts, especially the Dilmah t-Lounges, are given the best by putting our heart and soul into these products.”
Dilhan Fernando stated, “After opening the second Dilmah t-Lounge in Sri Lanka, the concept of t-Lounges by Dilmah was taken overseas. It is an enormously significant occasion for us because what you see around here is the look and feel, and the mood and vibe that t-Lounges around the world will have. A t-Lounge is a lovely place at which to enjoy good tea and food, but what it signifies is something much deeper than that. This is the symbol of a brand that has taken Sri Lankan tea with its concepts, along with Sri Lankan style food and Sri Lankan F&B experience, to the world”.
