A Cup of Irish Tea...

The Irish people have a gentle way about them, love to sing and dance, and like nothing more than to sit and chat over a good cup of tea. Here's the best recipe we've come across for a perfect cup of tea:

We offer several designs of teapots, in both 2 and 7-cup sizes. We also carry a full line of loose and bagged teas and a beautiful, insulated Shamrock tea cozy.

Our Favorite Irish Soda Bread Recipe

Your guests will appreciate a little something to go with their tea. Irish Soda Bread is popular throughout Ireland. Because it is easily and quickly made, it is often baked fresh for tea or even breakfast and is sure to please. Here is the recipe:

Irish Soda Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Sieve the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Scoop up handfuls and allow drop back into the bowl to aerate the mixture. Add enough buttermilk to make a soft dough. Now work quickly as the buttermilk and soda are already reacting.
  2. Knead the dough lightly-too much handling will toughen it, while too little means it won't rise properly.
  3. Form a round loaf about as thick as your fist. Place it on a lightly floured baking sheet and cut a cross in the top with a floured knife. Put at once to bake near the top of the oven for 30-45 minutes. When baked, the loaf will sound hollow when rapped on the bottom with our knuckles. Wrap immediately in a clean tea towel to stop the crust from hardening too much. Serve warm.

Try our Follain preserves from West Cork: Gooseberry, Blackberry, Loganberry, Strawberry, Raspberry jams, or any of our numerous Irish Marmalades on a slice of this bread.
