A delicious union of medium-strength Ceylon Single Region Tea, fused with the bittersweet flavour of Italian Almond. The fragrant, rich Almond, and the mellow, malty note typical of Ceylon tea, produce a deep, harmonious, amber infusion.

Health benefits of Italian Almond

This combination of black tea leaves and Italian Almonds provides a rich source of antioxidants, present in both black tea and almonds, which may help protect the body against free radical damage. Almonds are also high in magnesium, which may support improvements for metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, both black tea and almonds have been shown to help promote heart health, weight loss, and brain and digestive health.

Tea for Healthcare for plantation community

The delicious Italian Almond black tea is a fusion between the nutty aroma of almonds, and a medium-strength Ceylon Single Region Tea from the Nawalapitiya region. When you purchase Dilmah tea, you are paying a fair price, contributing to the vision of our company’s founder Merril J. Fernando. He believed that business should be a matter of human service, and a company’s most valuable assets are its people. Therefore, to maintain high standards of health amongst plantation communities, healthcare centres, located within Dilmah tea gardens, are fully equipped and continually upgraded. One example of this is the establishment of the Merrill J. Fernando Health Centre, at the Somerset Estate in Talawakelle, serving a population of 3600 plantation workers and their families. Moreover, the MJF Foundation has both donated an ECG machine to the Westhall Estate Government Hospital in Nawalapitiya, and, with assistance from the Foundation, the Houpe Estate Hospital was renovated and upgraded. With such efforts, Dilmah tea gardens are working towards ensuring the health and wellbeing of their communities.

Italian Almond and cheese

The tea is enveloping with a deliciously piquant aroma of almond, producing an engaging brew with a nutty, sweet edge, and mellow, but prominent character. It is a perfect ‘dessert tea’. In addition, for all the foodies, try sipping this tea while having some cheese. Italian Almond black tea can be a perfect pairing with Déli French Emmentaler, Dutch Young Gouda, Manchego Artisanale, and Blue Stilton. Have a taste of one of these delicacies, and then rinse your mouth with a sip of our nutty, bittersweet tea: a surprisingly perfect accompaniment to a cheese platter.

Storage advice

Keep the tea stored in its steel box, in a cool dark place. It is important when storing it to keep it away from sources of heat. If storing in the refrigerator/ freezer, pack in small, completely airtight packets or jars. Before use, wait for it to reach room temperature, in order to prevent any condensation. Each defrosted packet should be used within a week after opening.
