Lavished in quality and authenticity, Dilmah Tea hosted a classy afternoon tea experience last month with Robert Schinkel, Brand Ambassador of Dilmah Tea Mixology at the Papilion Pacific Place Jakarta. 

There is a very skilled art in creating such an iconic experience as afternoon tea.

Having known as Dilmah’s legend on tea mixology for more than a decade, Robert are committed to crafting and brewing tea-based beverages. Last month, he had the opportunity to visit Jakarta and was pleased to serve his friends and media colleagues at the signature Af t Noon experience at the Papilion Pacific Place Jakarta.

Carrying a different concept from other existing lounges, Dilmah t-Lounge provides new innovations in food and beverages as well as in marketing food and drinks from Huize Van Wely. 

Creating a unique and personal experience for guests, the Af t Noon experience by Dilmah is the perfect way to spend a leisurely afternoon with friends, family and colleagues in the wonderful ambience of the Pacific Place Mall, Jakarta. Indulged by premium collection of hand-picked teas, guests were spoiled with a varied range of non-so-clichéd foods and beverages.
