Dilmah Real High Tea Global Challenge 2015 final

Start Date : July 1, 2015

End Date : July 4, 2015

Type : Continental

Country : Sri Lanka

The Real High Tea Global Challenge 2015 final will take place this 1st to 4th of July at the Hilton Residences in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It will be judged by a panel of prestigious judges Bernd Uber – recipient of the exclusive and revered Sidney Taylor Memorial Black Hat Award, Dilhan C. Fernando – Director Dilmah School of Tea and the visionary force of Dilmah Tea Gastronomy, Simon Gault - MasterChef New Zealand judge and Peter Kuruvita – Award winning Chef and Restaurateur. Each national challenge has been judged by a panel of world-renowned professionals which includes, Uwe Micheel, Tony Khoo and more. Between a true tea connoisseur and some of the most prolific names in the culinary world, winning the national title is a tall order.
The criteria for judging is very simple; understanding the exact influence of terroir, the awareness of the rationale, the knowledge of the exact taste of different teas, how to create the perfect brew, the use of sustainable ingredients ideally sourced from a family business which reflects the family values that are also an integral part of Dilmah.
“Ceylon took tea to the world. Dilmah tea had shaken the big world out there. Every effort, every investment placed behind Dilmah tea is with no personal interest, no personal gain, but for the country’s gain and for the industry’s gain.” said Dilmah Founder Merrill J. Fernando, commenting upon the competition.
