Barry's Tea

No nation has embraced tea drinking more enthusiastically than the Irish, and this iconic brand accounts for 40% of tea sales in Ireland. It’s invariably listed by ex-pats among the things they miss most about Ireland when away, and the international availability of this great Cork product reflects this demand; definitely not your usual list of stockists around the country, the Barry’s Where To Buy information underlines the affection that Irish people living abroad have for their favourite cuppa - the company’s distribution map shows stockists all over Europe, in North America, Australia - and even in Asia.


The company dates back to 1901 when it was founded by James J. Barry, the grandfather of current Chairman, Peter Barry, and over the last 50 years it has developed to become the much loved national brand it is today.


They know their market and skilled blenders ensure a consistent product, but this socially responsible company also know their sources - and are careful to select not only the best quality teas required to produce their distinctive flavours, but also those that are ethically produced.


Although known mainly for the core products - Gold Blend, Classic Blend and Original Blend - they also produce a growing range of fruit infusions, herbal and other speciality teas, which are going down a treat with an increasingly health-conscious public.


Widely stocked and also available to purchase online, where their shop offers all of the teas, some of them in tins, and also other products (shopping bag, T shirts etc) although, surprisingly, no teapots or any of the many tea making accessories that would be useful - and so very collectible.
