Hyderabad-Radisson Blu- Dilmah t-Bar

Newly open Hyberdad Radisson BLU Plaza was the first to launch a Dilmah t-BAR in India. The t-bar is designed to bring nature's healing herb in unimaginable variety to the 21st century tea drinker.  A tea experience that sets the mood, a great conversation, and music to make it memorable.   Dilmah designer t-Series launched the eighth t-bar of many ranges, origins and two from India's home land- Single Estate Assam and Single Estate Darjeeling.  The t-bar is an incredible avenue to enjoy tea in many variations served as cocktails, mocktails, t shots and t shakes.  An ancient herb with a modern twist.
Radisson Blu Plaza will be the rave.
Congratulations and Cheers!

Word was out that an eighth Dilmah T-Bar was going into India.  I contacted my colleague Robert Schinkel to get the details. Robert would be right there in the mix.  Robert Schinkel, tea sommelier, mixologist, bartender, trainer, speaker and representative for the MJF Charitable Foundation, Robert is a strong affiliate for Dilmah.  Becoming champion in 2009 in the The Sommelier competition in the Netherlands it opened doors to participate in 2010 Chefs and the Teamaker.  Robert has what it takes to take the ancient herb and create many variations of a classic cocktail or pure innovations.  Robert teamed up with photographer Izabela Urbaniak, Poland, and created the Dilmah Cocktails, Dilmah Mocktails, Dilmah Spa Tea recipe books.  Create for yourself and take a peek Dilmah Spa Tea Mixology.   Robert has had the opportunity to partner with Dilhan Fernando to launch Dilmah tea at various properties. Robert has developed a training program to equip the staff in proper tea preparation, training in mixology and tea and foodpairing.  It has led him to many fascinating locations as the like of such places as Phuket,Thailand, Jakarta,Indonesia, Czech Republic, Koh Samui,Thailand and of course Sri Lanka at the Dilmah School of Tea. Robert stated, "Tea is a great cocktail ingredient.  When you use top quality tea and brew it right you can make a great drink." You may follow him at Tea Gastronomy/Robert Schinkel
