"It is nostalgia’s fain hope that even dark days can bear forth brightness"
Due to its position during the war, Ireland imported tea directly from countries of origin, and therefore remained mostly unaffected by the rationing and low quality that became commonplace on the mainland as they struggled with supply issues. In fact, until the seventies it was illegal for Irish companies to import tea except directly from it's country of origin, cutting out the middlemen and any dilution of quality. It's no wonder we drink more tea than almost any other country in the world.
This traditional blend is rooted in history, using beautiful full leaves and only Assam and Sri Lankan teas, eschewing the more modern addition of Kenyan. The strength and rich colour of the Assam is lifted with the citrus fullness of the Sri Lankan to make a breakfast blend you can enjoy at any time of day.
Great Taste Award Winner
Great Taste is simply about taste, not clever branding or smart packaging. Judges are presented with a spoonful of jam, a pie, a slice of salami, or a cup of espresso, with no wrappings, jars or marks – and they taste, confer and re-taste before making a decision. Any food that a judging team believes is worthy of Great Taste stars is judged by at least two further teams. Only when there is a consensus will an award be given – that means at least 16 judges will have tasted every accredited product.
Judged by over 400 of the most demanding palates belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, members of the Women’s Institute, farmers and a host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers.
