Irish Cream Black Tea

A blend of Assam, Ceylon, and Kenyan black teas blended to make a full bodied tea with a touch of vanilla for a hint of sweetness.

Here's to Ireland, the country that can lay claim to the honor of having the most tea drinkers per capita in the entire world! The average Irishman enjoys an average of 6 cups a day. Even with the country's relatively small population of 3.9 million, that is almost 24 million cups a day!

Tea and Ireland go way back. The drink was first introduced to the country in 1835 by British traders when Ireland was still part of the British Empire. Maintaining a secure supply was never a problem as Ireland relied on British importers for a steady flow of the drink  that is until WWII. During the war, Britain was forced to ration foodstuffs of all kinds, tea included, throughout the Empire. The problem for Irish tea-drinkers arose when part way through the war, much to the consternation of the British government, Ireland declared itself neutral in the global conflict. The British retaliated for what they saw as an act of subversion by cutting their tea ration down to almost nothing. Undaunted, the enterprising Irish government set up its own tea importing company, Tea Importers (Eire) Ltd., and tea drinkers throughout the Emerald Isle rejoiced!

This good strong blend honors the tea drinking spirit of the hardy Irish. This blend, like most tea consumed in Ireland these days is made from East African and Ceylon varieties with a special addition  a good strong Assam. The addition of the Assam adds a depth to the tea that is beautifully offset by the addition of cream, another Irish favorite.
