The Milestone Hotel and Residences is excited to offer guests a unique Afternoon Tea experience by offering a PMD Tea Academy

The Milestone Hotel has proudly been serving Single Estate Teas from our ethical supplier, PMD Tea for a number of years.  Afternoon Tea is a quintessentially English tradition and is upheld in its finest form at The Milestone, highly commended at the Afternoon Tea Awards.

The Milestone is offering guests the chance to enhance their knowledge of tea while enjoying this finest tradition. The Tea Academy experience is hosted by Dananjaya Silva, Managing Director of PMD Tea. Guests can enjoy a cup of all-time favourites such as Earl Grey or Lapsang Souchong whilst being invited to experience those a little more exotic such as Lover’s Leap.  Our Tea Tutorial perfectly marries the perfect cup of tea with our award-winning Afternoon Tea pastries.

About PMD Tea

P.M.David Silva & Sons was established in 1945 during the Plantation Raj in Ceylon’s world famous Dimbula Valley. The company was founded on Brunswick Estate in the fertile Maskeliya Valley as a small independent Tea Shop for tea plantation workers to gather, relax and enjoy a quality cup of tea. The business and the family soon expanded to become a specialist Tea Transporter and Plantation Supplier. Today, three generations on, we remain a family company bringing world’s most sought-after teas that are hand plucked and ethically sourced from the very people and estates that we have worked with."  The philosophy that PMD Tea aims to embody is one of family values and both ethical and environmental sustainability.
