A taste of Ireland

As always, we are extremely happy with our tea purchase. We started ordering the Irish Breakfast tea but as time has gone on, we have tried other blends and have NEVER been disappointed. We are currently enjoying Emerald Isle and Creamy Dreamy Galway Blend. A taste of Ireland until our next trip to Galway and Cupán Tae!

Just Great!

I really look forward to a piping hot cup of this tea. Pair this Irish Breakfast tea with a scone right out of the oven and you have perfection! I live in the USA and I take the time to order Irish Breakfast tea from Cupan Tae because it is by far my favorite.

A classic, brilliantly done! I’ve had dozens of other Irish breakfast teas, but none quite compare to this one. It’s robust, comforting, and proudly proclaims that special something that sets an Irish breakfast blend apart from an English or Parisian breakfast. I brewed it for a Mother’s Day tea and my mom loved it too! Brought back good memories of Ireland for both of us.
