Luck Of The Irish
CharacterA strong black tea to perk you up and a creamy smooth and aromatic flavour follows
Drinking tea is even more important alcohol on the Emerald Isle. Considered by most to be a necessity to keep tempers pleasant in a country that’s cold and rainy for most of the year, the Irish tea culture dates back to the 1800s. Strong black tea tea is consumed by all, at all hours so it's no surprise that the Irish consume more tea per person than the English.
Ideally Irish tea should be brewed in a teapot, which must be heated beforehand by swishing boiling water around it, then filled with just off the boil water and let to steep extra long too make it extra strong.
