Barry's Tea was founded in 1901 by James J. Barry, grandfather of the present Chairman Peter Barry.
From the outset, the company specialised in high quality Tea and in 1934, was awarded the Empire Cup for Tea blending.
With the company's focus on blending the highest quality Teas, market share continued to grow through the century. Today Barry's Tea is the number 1 blended Irish Tea and is one of the Top 20 grocery brands in the Irish market.
Barry's Tea only selects Tea from the best Tea estates in the world, so you get the perfect cup every single time.
We source our Teas from the high mountain Tea estates in East Africa. This unique climate means that excellent quality Teas can be produced all year round, guaranteeing a constant freshness, essential for meeting and maintaining our high standards. We also like to keep the blends rich and diverse by using specially selected Teas from the Assam Valley of India.
Our blenders are experts in their field and have carefully passed their knowledge and expertise down through generations. This means our quality is never anything but exceptional. When it comes to the quality, flavour and consistency of our blends we never compromise.
