The world's leading tea brand scours the nation in search of talented F&B stars to revolutionise the local tea culture

Coffee has experienced a big boom in the last few years in Thailand with more and more dedicated roasters and cafes popping up in major cities like Bangkok. Which is why it's time for tea to have its moment. In an effort to introduce and cultivate a new tradition among Thai people, Dilmah is on a search for talented and creative chefs and bartenders to utilise tea in their craft and offer new perspective on how tea can be enjoyed.

The event is set to take place at the end of this week on August 22 and 23 at the Emporium Tower, under the eyes of Dilmah selected F&B veterans such as brand ambassador chef Peter Kuruvita and Tomek Malek, a World Champion Flair Bartender.
