What's the Best Tea Plays Choice for St. Patrick's Day?

Tea Plays St. Patrick's Day

Why do the Irish love tea so much? And what tea to enjoy for their national day?

As we saw earlier this week, the Irish are the most tea-mad people in Europe. They like to drink tea at any opportunity, often have it during meals and definitely after a night at the pub! They even drink more than their old friends the British, with whom they have a long and complicated relationship. This long and close connection to Britain and the British Empire is what brought tea to Ireland. Why did it take root there so firmly over the centuries?

Ireland has changeable weather, being wet and cold much of the year round, so much of Irish culture takes place indoors, socializing, chatting and keeping warm.
The amount of rainfall on the Atlantic facing island is what makes the countryside fertile and shapes the agricultural economy and strongly rural culture. This friendly growth environment led to the color green becoming the national color and explains the sudden appearance of green costumes, decorations and so on wherever you come across people celebrating Saint Patrick's Day, the national holiday, which falls on the 17th of March every year.

Like the other top tea drinking countries outside Asia, the Irish tend to prefer black tea – this falls into the category of what the Chinese refer to as 'red' tea, meaning toasted and fermented. It so happens that this is the tea leaf in our 'greenest' bonbon, too: Good Morning, along with refreshing green mint and sweet calendula. If you celebrate Saint Patrick's day the way many Irish do, you'll definitely appreciate what Tea Plays has put together for you the next morning...
