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

Health benefits of Italian Almond

This combination of black tea leaves and Italian Almonds can provide a rich source of antioxidants, which are present in both black tea and almonds, and can protect the body against free radical damage. Almonds are also high in magnesium, which can support improvements for metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, both black tea and almonds have been shown to promote heart health, weight loss, and brain and digestive health. So, if you’re looking for a cosy and warming drink with some health benefits, Italian Almond black tea is an excellent choice.

How to make a perfect brew

Tea for Healthcare for plantation community

The delicious Italian Almond black tea is a fusion between the nutty aroma of the almonds and a medium strength Ceylon Single Region Tea from the Nawalapitiya region. When you purchase Dilmah tea, you are paying a fair price to contribute to the vision of our company’s founder Merril J. Fernando. He believes that business should be a matter of human service, and a company’s most invaluable assets are its people. Therefore, to maintain high standards of health amongst plantation communities, healthcare centres located within Dilmah tea gardens continue to be equipped and upgraded. One example of this is the establishment of the Merrill J. Fernando Health Centre at the Somerset Estate in Talawakelle, which serves a population of 3600 plantation workers and their families. Furthermore, the MJF Foundation has donated an ECG machine to the Westhall Estate Government Hospital in Nawalapitiya, and the Houpe Estate Hospital was renovated and upgraded with assistance from the Foundation. With these 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’ or accompaniment to afternoon tea. But not only that. For all the foodies, try to sip this tea when you are having some cheese. Italian Almond black tea can be the perfect pairing when tasting Déli French Emmentaler, Dutch Young Gouda, Manchego Artisanale and Blue Stilton. Have a taste of one of these delicacies, and then rinse your mouth by having a sip of our nutty, bittersweet tea. You will be surprised, not only wine can be the perfect accompaniment to a cheese platter.

Storage advice

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