Discover the unique tea-tasting experience at T-lounge by Dilmah, the first of its kind in Brunei.

Dilmah, Sri Lanka’s most recognised international brand of ethical tea, is now expanding its visibility in the sultanate.

Served in the charming glass surrounding Little Soho, Batu Bersurat, the luxurious lounge is the perfect spot for an afternoon tea.

T-lounge offers guests a wide range of fine hand-picked teas to choose from. Guests are able to sample different flavoured teas from the various regions in Sri Lanka on display.

The tea selection changes regularly and include popular tea such as white tea and oolong tea.

The brand prides itself on being “garden fresh”, unblended and organic; full of flavour and wonderfully fragrant.

In addition, Dilmah offers tea pairing and brewing tips to their guest.

“We will give tips on how to pair and brew the perfect cup,” said Michelle Kheng, Operation Manager of T-lounge.

“Pairing of our teas works well with both sweet and savoury dishes. It all depends on the tea.

“The range of flavours and aroma Dilmah offers makes it a perfect candidate for culinary opportunity,” she added.

Dilmah has also hosted events such as Tbear Tea Party and Brunei Womenprenuer Network.

Kheng said Brunei has a thriving culture of food and drinking experiences.

“The trend for coffee shops may have increased in Brunei. However it seems there’s also a growing demand for tea, with more infusion tea shops and bubble tea franchise popping up,” she added.

The T-lounge opens from 7am – 10pm. For more information, you can visit their instagram account @tloungebydilmah_brunei.
