Dilmah’s t-tK or ‘Tea Kitsch’ enthusiasts and fans can now savor not only tea gastronomy but also the upscale lifestyle locally at the t-Lounge. t-tK is a centuries old Sri Lankan tea making tradition where strong black tea is brewed. Condensed milk is then added to it and the tea is ‘pulled’ by pouring the mixture from one stainless steel jug to another.
