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.
