About Barry's Tea

Barry's Tea is an Irish brand of tea, founded in 1901 by James J. Barry. For most of the company's history, they sold most of their tea, which mostly consisted of blends from India and Sri Lanka, from a shop on Prince’s Street in Cork. The company began to expand in locations, and also began creating new blends that included East African Teas, such as from Kenya and Rwanda. These new blends came to define the brand's character, and the company still focuses on similar blends, using teas from Assam, India, and East Africa.

Barry's is best-known for its black teas, although Barry's also sells green and flavored teas. The teas are available both in teabags and loose.

Although mostly a national brand in Ireland, Barry's teas can be purchased in other countries as well. In the U.S., they are available through http://www.barrystea.us/.

This is another box of tea from iherb.com. I'd about given up on finding a decent decaf black tea, but I had a discount and so the price was right.

These are the loose, tagless tea bags typical of Ireland and the UK, containing 3g of tea each. The dry tea smells surprisingly strong for a decaf, but as others have no...

When I ordered some herbs from iHerb.com, they had better prices for Barry's teas than I can get locally, so I bought a few varieties to try and this is one of them. My box says "Irish Breakfast," so that's where I'm putting the review, but it's otherwise the same green box as the "Original Blend" and I suspect they're...

My samples of Barry's Decaf came from a motel where the "regular" tea was Lipton. As such, I haven't tried the normal, caffeinated breed of this tea yet for comparison's sake. Both there and at home, I tried it before bedtime, as the website advocated (but without knowing of said suggestion yet).

Dry-bag aroma wa...

It's been a while since I've had tea from Barry's. I've had the Gold Blend in the past and I really liked it so I figured I would try the Irish Breakfast. On the front on the box it says it's their "lightest and most refreshing blend," but I don't agree with that haha!

It brews up a nice dark color with some slight...

Apr. 1st, 2017

The dry tea is strange-looking. I think it's CTC tea that has been broken up into smaller pieces. Each teabag contains 3g of tea, so expect a strong cup of tea if you're used to American teabags.

Dry, it smells like CTC Assam tea, malty, tannic and slightly smoky. Adding the water opens up the aroma, which is rich a...
