6 Reasons Why We Love a Cup Of Tea In Northern Ireland

6 Reasons why we love a cup of tea in Northern Ireland it’s our lifeblood and here’s why we all adore the brown stuff.

1. It warms us up

On a dark weekday, our morning cuppa is the only thing that gets us out of bed. For this alone, we love it.

2. The local choice is top notch!

From family favourite Punjana (which incidentally was founded in Belfast in 1896) to Suki Tea’s Belfast Brew, there is a cup of tea for every occasion (although frankly, if you take it with no milk and lemon, you’re a mug).

3. It brings us closer together

Tea and a chat is a wonderful part of our culture. When we call in to see a friend they know exactly what to do. Get the kettle on

4. Have it how you like it

From Builder’s Brew to a weak, milky cuppa, nobody is going to judge you for how you take your tea. It’s tea, and that’s all that matters.

5. Perfect with biscuits

If you didn’t have tea, you wouldn’t have biscuits. Chocolate digestives top our list of treats to dunk in our tea with the Hobnob coming in a close second and the Jammie Dodger in third place.

6. Tea is good for you and your flowers

When you’ve made your tea what do you do with the bags or leaves? Just pop them in your food caddy. Tea contains nitrogen which is essential for healthy plant growth and will help bring the flowers in your local park into bloom.
