McEntees Fine Teas
For Helen McEntee, growing up on the Isle of Man, childhood memories of cases of loose tea arriving to her Grandparent’s hotel, the aroma and sweet malty flavour of quality tea with family and friends at the old hotel still remains embedded in her memories. Quality tea was a central part of the hotel’s hospitality and Afternoon Tea remained an important tradition right up to the 1980’s.
Helen and Donal McEntee are very aware of the growing desire for a better quality cup of tea and the increasing trend back to loose tea because of this. As we saw with coffee in the previous decade “instant” is no longer enough. Environmental issues relating to tea bags have also played a part in the growing interest in loose leaf tea.
McEntee’s Tea looks to ensure that we can continue to enjoy quality Irish blends of loose tea which was so important to previous generations. In a fast-paced modern world, McEntee’s Tea looks to bring us back into the moment. In Ireland, tea has always been one of life’s constants and McEntee’s Tea looks to offer us a rich, unrivaled refreshing taste of home. It gives us a moment to be enjoyed with family, friends or when we need that time to ourselves, reminding us of a simpler time when quality tea was made the way it should be.
McEntee’s Gold Blend is a blend of some of the world’s finest teas. It perfectly combines the strength and flavour of India’s finest lowland Assam teas with the refreshing premium highland Kenyan teas to make the perfect cuppa. Available in a tin or foil refill pouch.
