Celebrating the Joy of Sharing Kindness

Even though our Zeero Waste Naturally Zesty Lemon infusion is past its best by date (end of November 2023), its flavour is still impeccable, and it would be a great waste to just throw it away.

And it will taste even better, because for a limited time only, you can get, with every order on our webshop, 2 packages of Zero Waste Naturally Zesty Lemon infusion for free: one for you, and one to share kindness. Simply add 2 Naturally Zesty Lemon packages to your cart in addition to other Dilmah products, and proceed with your purchase.

Alcohol-free Alternative to Glühwein

In winter, people in many European countries, and especially in Germany, love drinking Glühwein, a warm, spiced wine, at holiday markets. It's all about feeling warm, happy, and together. But if you don't drink alcohol, we've got something special for you.

A Drink Good For You and Our Planet

Our No-Waste Lemon Spiced Infusion is a warm, zesty drink that, combined with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, gives you the same cozy feeling as Glühwein, but without alcohol. Made with Dilmah's Zero Waste Naturally Zesty Lemon infusion, it's naturally caffeine-free and a real treat for your tastebuds. This drink is good for you and good for the planet, as it contributes to fight against food waste.

Perfect for Any Winter Occasion

Whether you're enjoying winter sports, a stroll through a twinkling market, or simply seeking solace from the cold, this Lemon Spiced Infusion is your perfect treat. It's like a hug in a mug.

Make a big pot, enough for about 10 cups as it's great for sharing. It's also easy to reheat and take along in a thermos for outdoor fun. Enjoy the warmth and cheer of the season with each sip of this Lemon Spiced Tea.
