Taste of Ireland

We love our loose teas from Cupán Tae ! As time goes on we are trying more from their vast selection. We can’t decide which is our favourite, Irish Breakfast, Dreamy Creamy Galway or Emerald Isle. We are never disappointed and our orders are shipped quickly! Always a treat!

Wonderful experience!!

Loved getting tea delivered here in the US! We are sad we cannot go to Ireland this year (my daughter went to school there and we miss it) so the next best thing was getting a taste of Galway delivered. The kind note enclosed was wonderful and made it so person!! Many thanks!!!

Lovely tea and lovely service!

We bought (again) Irish breakfast tea and Creamy Dreamy Galway tea - both were excellent. I find them more mellow than the usual, supermarket teas, but not insipid (I'm quite picky about my tea!). They came with a lovely hand-written note which made us smile. We'll be ordering more soon.

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!
