Family and friends in Chile and other South American countries desired to read about Chef Matias Palomo from Chile. Today on Chile CNN Chef Matias shared about his gastronomic trip to Sri Lanka and the Dilmah School of Tea where he was introduced to tea in a different manner. Tea preparation is very important in a proper hot or a glass of iced tea. A cup of chilled tea will make a refreshing glass of iced tea with fruit in season, or an exclusive cocktail or a tea shake. 

The School of Tea took the chefs to 9 locations in Sri Lanka. Each location represented a place that tea had its expression.  Tea fields, MJF Charitable Foundation, MJF Conservation, Sri Lankan culture and culinary dishes, camping, camaraderie and learning the fine art of tea. 

One of the basic points of tea is the subject of the "terroir" aspect of tea just as you would find in wine. "Terroir" means "land" in french. Tea is characterized by the climate, topography, geography, soil, weather, humidity, temperature, winds and time of day.  This will denote the different varieties in tea.

Sri Lanka made an imprint in Chef Matias life and now shares with his fellow Chileans.

It was pleasure to cover Chef Matias Palomo.
