Wonderful High Tea with the Dilmah Family! 


Over February’s Art Deco weekend, we had a very special event organised with the Dilmah Tea Family for their fantastic customers. Having heard all about our Mangapapa High Tea, Dilmah Tea worked with us to provide a unique dining experience for some lucky customer, competition winners. Our team of talented Chefs, created a customised, tea inspired menu, complete with traditional Sri Lanka love cake, tea inspired sorbets and dainty china cups brimming with yummy tea. It was an honour to meet the founder of Dilmah Tea, Mr Fernando & his son, Dilhan and see them enjoy our scrumptious sweet treats.
