Get Irish Afternoon Loose Tea in a 250 Gram/8.8 Ounce Package if you prefer.

Picture yourself tasting tea at an estate in Rwanda. Then, you go off to do the same at tea estates east of the Rift Valley in Kenya. Satisfied you have the best African tea leaves, you next visit tea estates in India's Assam region. These are the tea leaves Bewleys uses to make their Irish Afternoon Tea.

To create Irish Afternoon Tea, Bewley's blend tea leaves from these countries and regions to create a specific taste. Bewley's Irish Afternoon is 100% tea leaves.

Bewley's Irish Afternoon Tea brews a golden color and has a light and smooth taste with a subtle jolt.
Bewleys Irish Afternoon Tea comes in tea bags or loose tea. The tea bags only available in the traditional square shape. On the front of the 80 tea bag box and loose tea package is an image of the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, Ireland.

Plus, it is an award-winning tea. Bewleys Irish Afternoon Tea was recognized with a gold medal at the 2010 Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste Awards.

As a black tea, it is best to add a dash of milk and sweetener (sugar, honey or whatever you choose). Although it says afternoon, the tea can be consumed any time of day. To make the best Bewleys Irish Breakfast, steep the tea for 3 to 5 minutes.

Actually, Irish Afternoon is part of Bewley's International Range mostly for export. Tea drinkers in Ireland typically drink Bewleys Gold or a similar tea.

Irish Breakfast is another common type of tea. Because Breakfast Teas have traditionally been consumed as soon as you wake up, these teas tender to be stronger than Irish Afternoon Teas. Rather, Irish Afternoon Teas tend to be lighter and smoother and just provide a little jolt you need to get going later in the day. However, Irish Afternoon Teas should always be a black tea.

Just as you can find English Breakfast Teas, you will also find English Afternoon Teas.

In tea making, cupping means to taste and evaluate tea leaves for such factors and aroma, body, briskness, color and more. This is required to discover the qualities of the tea so consistent blends can be produced. As a natural product, tea leaves from the same geographic region can taste vastly different. This steps means the tea consistently taste the same and is of a good quality.

First, Bewley's visits tea growers across India's Assam region as well as Rwanda and Kenya in Africa to begin selecting the best tea leaves to use for Irish Afternoon. Bewleys examines tea leaves for appearance, taste, color, strength and briskness.

Then, Bewleys Master Tea Blender gets samples different varieties of tea. These samples are then reviewed for leaf size and quality. A thorough cupping is then conducted. Bewleys even has a dedicated cupping room so outside distractions can be eliminated. The best teas are then chosen and Bewleys purchases these from tea growers. Upon arrival at the Bewleys facility in Dublin, Ireland, the Irish Afternoon Tea can be created.

Then, the best tea leaves are purchased and shipped back to Bewley's plant in Dublin, Ireland. After arrival in Ireland, the tea leaves are tasted again to ensure they taste the same as they did before purchase at the tea estate.

Now comes the hard part. How do you blend tea from different regions to get the same taste in every cup of Bewleys Irish Afternoon Tea. Adding to the complexity is that fact that each crop of tea can vary in taste. Weather may alter the taste of it may not be possible to obtain from the same tea estates every year. But, the tea leaves have to be blended to ensure the same taste every time a cup of Bewleys Irish Breakfast is consumed.

Bewleys Master Blender has to adjust the type of tea leaves and the volume of tea leaves. Bewleys keep samples of previous blends to ensure the taste is consistent. This text first appear on teadog.com page of Bewleys Irish Afternoon Tea Bags.
Tea leaves from Africa, Rwanda and Kenya, as well as the Assam valley in India.

Fabulous MORNING tea! We are big Bewley's fans but for some reason had never tried the afternoon tea. It has a subtle taste that we love. Makes very good iced tea as well!

My sister had brought some of this tea back from Ireland and I couldn't get enough... reminded me of days spent in Galway years ago.  So glad that I found teadog.com!
