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 2018 Afternoon Tea Awards.

The Milestone are 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 with 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. 

Indulge in a delicious array of delicate finger sandwiches, accompanied by warm freshly baked scones piled high with Devonshire clotted cream and home-made preserves, and a selection of pastries including éclairs, tartlets, cupcakes and macarons.

  • The PMD Tea Academy is available on specific dates only: 27th July, 28th September and 9th November 2019.  
  • Experience detail: Guests receive full Afternoon Tea, hosted by Dananjay Silva (PMD Tea), with a selection of teas and an insight into our incredible range of single-estate Sri Lankan teas.
  • Price – £70 per person (excluding service charge)
  • Guests must book in advance as the experience is subject to availability.

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.
