With Valentine’s Day only a breath away, Dilmah Tea has created this delicious recipe to make the traditionally romantic day extra special.


  • 3 bottles of Pinot Grigio

  • 1 cup fresh or canned lychee fruit

  • 1 punnet of strawberries hulled and cut in half

  • 30ml lychee liqueur

  • 2 oranges, finely sliced

  • 3 cups of Dilmah 100% Ceylon Black tea

  • 1 bottle sparkling mineral water

  • 30 cups seedless frozen grapes or ice cubes


  • 1.

    Start out by firstly freezing 3 cups of seedless grapes to be later used for ice cubes.

  • 2.

    Place the Pinot Grigio white wine in a large pitcher or punch bowl. Add the lychee fruit, strawberries, sliced oranges and lychee liqueur.

  • 3.

    Brew 3 cups of Dilmah black tea using cold fresh water and by letting the teabags steep for at least 3 minutes. Let the tea cool and then add to the wine and fruit mixture.

  • 4.

    Chill the sangria in the fridge.

  • 5.

    The sangria is best made the day before to allow for the fruit, wine and tea flavours to infuse and marry together. Before serving add a dash of sparkling mineral water to add some effervescence and serve with either ice cubes or frozen grapes to keep the sangria cool and refreshing.
