A spirit of natural generosity, a home-from-home approach and a style of luxurious refinement shapes our culinary offerings at Ceylon Tea Trails. Instead of menus and set meal times, our friendly, exceptional chefs will discuss each meal with you personally in advance, suggesting an (inevitably irresistible) daily menu, tailored to individual tastes. Adding to the home-hospitality feel, rates include all meals and select wines and spirits, plus daily afternoon tea.
Breakfasts start the day off perfectly. Pick from Sri Lankan options such as hoppers with sambol, enjoy tropical fruit and nibble on crunchy muesli with creamy yoghurt or buffalo curd with honey or kithul treacle. European options include cold meat and cheeses, eggs cooked to your preference (eggs Benedict, perhaps?), toast and pastries with home-made orange marmalade and wood-apple jam; and of course, lashings of breakfast tea, served with milk, should you wish. The extensive tea menu is an absorbing read.
Lunch is a decadent, three-course affair, spanning a silky vegetable soup with a creamy foam, a delicious main and an artful dessert, presented with panache. Dinners span four courses, revealing our chefs’ world-class technical skills and flair for flavours. Herbs and vegetables are home-grown, and the local tea flavours many dishes, most notably in our Tea Experience Dinner.
Worthy of any Parisian pâtissier, our daily afternoon tea riffs on the bungalows’ colonial past, harking back to the days when the planters and their wives would relax over tea and nibbles, while soaking up the leafy, tree-fringed views that reminded them of the English meadows and Scottish Highlands they had left behind.
