AIRLINES often boast about the quality of their in-flight wine list, but the tea? Not so much.
However all that changed over the weekend on International Tea Day, when Emirates celebrated its 27-yearpartnership with Dilmah by conducting a sky-high tea appreciation ceremony.
The master-class, held in the Business class A380 on-board lounge on EK31 from Dubai to London, was hosted by Dilmah Tea founder Merrill J. Fernando and his son, Dilhan, who is now the company’s CEO.
Emirates brews 33 million cups of Dilmah tea every year from a specially curated tea menu - including an exclusive Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe 1 blend created just for First class pax.
