Phuket’s Les Diables modernizes teatime traditions with perfect pairings and a serious dose of creativity

Thailand’s 2015 winner for the global Dilmah Real High Tea Challenge is Les Diables, a devilishly delicious patisserie and restaurant in Phuket. Les Diables has created two highly original and very different menus to take tea pairing into the 21st century. The Thai High Tea comes with tantalizing bites that clearly reference local cuisine in thoroughly modernized formats: Passion Sorbet with Coconut Ice, Spicy Pork Curry Puffs, Larb Gai Rolls with Raita Dip, Green Tea Brulee Shots and many more dishes designed to pair perfectly with Dilmah Berry Sensation or Dilmah Rose. The English High Tea set is equally bold: Lemon Dill Pannacotta Shots with Tuna, Mini Salmon Cheese Cakes and a flurry of tea-flavored creations from Meringues with Tea-Infused Cream to Red Velvet Cupcakes with Rose and French Vanilla Tea Cream. With clear references to tea’s British heritage, these dishes are impeccably matched with a choice of Dilmah Earl Grey or Dilmah Peppermint & English Toffee. The Dilmah Real High Tea Challenge aims to celebrate such innovation and encourage restaurateurs who want to go beyond scones and clotted cream. To further Les Diables exploration of Real High Tea, they are being presented with a free trip to Sri Lanka to meet the other Global Real High Tea Challenge winner and gain a deeper knowledge of tea.
