Dilmah School of Tea 2018
February 15th, 2018
Arcade Independence Square, Chatham Street, Hilton Colombo
The Dilmah School of Tea (SOT) 2018 was held from the 29th of January to the 2nd of February and will mark the 9th consecutive year in which this pioneering tea training course has taken place.
It primarily seeks to educate and inspire hospitality professionals to offer their guests a completely new tea experience. SOT is also a signature tea program that fosters greater interest in quality tea, and greater respect for this healthy and versatile beverage. It further adds emphasis to the importance of Real Tea in Tea Gastronomy, food pairing and Tea Mixology. Dilmah has traditionally taken the lead in bringing innovation to a global tea category that has suffered decline as a result of commoditisation. And events such as this specialized programme that has been meticulously developed by experts, offer an unmatched standard of education and awareness on the most consumed beverage in the world after water; Tea.
The first Dilmah School of Tea, was established in 2009 with the aim of upholding the traditions of tea, by cultivating a respect for tea and sharing its rich cultural heritage. This is the world’s first consumer and hospitality tea school which unlike existing tea training facilities seeks to train professionals in the hospitality and culinary industries – those in the ‘front lines’ of international customer service and in the art of preparing and presenting tea with an understanding of its attributes.
