Below is an overview of the main ranges we have available in New Zealand along with links for further information.
Our premium everyday range of tea through which Dilmah has become a household name in New Zealand. Premium because we consider in comparison to other teas found at a similar price point these teas are truly of a premium quality. Grown and packed fresh at source in Sri Lanka by a family business dedicated to bringing back genuine quality tea at all levels of the market.
Single Region Range
For many people English Breakfast and Earl Grey are considered their everyday tea but this range generally sits a little above our Premium Range due to the grade of tea used. As well as English Breakfast and Earl Grey we also have Earl Grey Strong currently available in New Zealand supermarkets. English Afternoon and Ceylon Supreme are not currently stocked in supermarkets but are made available in their individually sealed envelope format through our online shop. These are all teas from particular regions of Sri Lanka which highlight the diversity of tea based on location, elevation and the terroir that makes Ceylon tea so famous.

Globally we have a broad range of teas produced to meet the needs of different markets where Dilmah is considered a real tea specialist. In New Zealand the tea range is constantly innovating and the range available varies year to year depending on a number of factors. In the mainstream category it’s what major supermarkets choose to carry on their shelves that to a large degree determines whether it’s cost effective (both for the consumer and ourselves) to continue bringing a particular tea into New Zealand.
