Tea was introduced to Ireland in the early 1800 and quickly spread through all of Ireland both rural and urban.The Irish love strong tea. In the old days tea was continuously brewing on the stove. We introduce Organic Irish Breakfast Tea to continue that tradition.

During the war the Irish refused to allow British ships into their western ports and the British tea deliveries were cut. Ireland started to import teas directly from their countries of origin. Traditional Irish breakfast tea is a blend of Assam Orthodox and Kenyan CTC (cut,torn,curled) tea.
