HIGH tea? Not only do Etihad Airways passengers in Diamond first class have personal chefs on call to prepare their meals but there’s a tea menu in partnership with the Fernando family of the Sri Lankan dynasty Dilmah (Dilhan Fernando pictured, left; his father, Merrill, right). You might think it’s all champagne up the pointy end but high-flyers are praising the airline’s classy wellness initiative. T&I’s stablemate even named the tea offering as ‘‘best airline wine list’’ in its August bumper travel edition this year (and best overall airline first class, a gong Etihad deserves in full measure). So if it’s not a perky sauvignon blanc or a smooth merlot up in the clouds, how about ‘‘full-bodied, rounded and refreshing’’ Uda Watte blend (which the Sri Lankan tea manufacturer likens to pinot noir) or cuppas of rose infused with french vanilla or Italian almond with a frisky hint of amaretto. Sweeten things further with baklava from Etihad’s Kitchen Anytime list. More: etihad.com.
