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/.

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...

This was a humble flat paper tea bag that surprised me with its quality. It was very different from the Gold Blend (the one with the red label) from this same company.

Brews a very rich, dark cup that is thick and full-flavored. The aroma is strongly malty, and upon drinking the whole cup there's a hint of winterg...

I really enjoy the flavor of this tea. I have only had it hot but plan on icing it this summer. I expect it to be delicious iced, too.

Sampled at the coffee hour at a Unitarian Church in Northwest Philly. I didn't expect much, because it was just a humble cardboard box filled with unsealed, paper tea bags, and each tea bag was filled with fine dust.

But this tea impressed me.

Steeped 3 minutes. Produced a robust, full-bodied cup that was low i...

Very good tea, in the Irish style, with a bit of milk. Personally, I prefer good bagged tea, as the loose leaf is too weak for my taste. Barry's has excellent flavor and a good kick. Lifts the spirits and satisfies the palate. I can recommend a cup without hesitation.
