    Barryメs Classic Tea

    Posted by Joseph C. Walker on Feb 28th 2018

    Barryメs Classic Tea is an absolutely delicious rich tea. I brew it using only spring water, ice made from filtered water, then sweeten it with sugar in the raw, and drunk it out of fine Waterford crystal brandy sniffers. The non chlorinated water gives the tea a rich dark orange color and allows one to taste this truly fine tea. There is no doubt the Irish surely know how to blend a fine tasting tea. I would recommend this tea to anyone who truly enjoys a rich tasting glass of iced tea. I do realize that in the UK they do not put ice in their tea. However this tea is also very good when one drinks it hot from a tea cup. I know because I have tried it hot.

    Best of the Barry's

    Posted by Teawyo on Feb 25th 2018

    At or near the top of the heap among the blended blacks sold at Teadog. Stacks up well to Thompson's Irish and Thompson's Signature, and Bewley's Special -- and that's saying something. Superior to the Namosas, Brodies and Williamsons, and I'd rate it above the very good Taylor's varieties, too (Taylor's English is comparable). Fragrance while brewing is excellent. Dark color. Strong cup. Leaving the bag in the cup doesn't ruin aything here. First rate tea.

    Best for iced tea

    Posted by Janet Macrae on Jan 12th 2014

    I believe most tea drinkers understand that a tea will taste differently at different temperatures. Unlike coffee, tea is good at any temp. Hot, this is a nice cuppa. But over ice, this is the BEST tea ever.

    Barry's Classic Tea

    Posted by Ian MacGregor on Nov 16th 2012

    Although a very good tea, it is a bit light for my tastes. When I'm not drinking Bewley's Irish Breakfast tea, I prefer Scottish Blend, It is slightly stronger than Barry's and richer in flavor.

    Barry's tea is a strong brew

    Posted by Leaf, no bean on Jun 16th 2012

    I am not a coffe drinker and therefore tea is my spirit. Barry's offers a strong brew that stands up to a dollop of milk and engenders me with a rich comfort whenever taken.

    Posted by Kanjiro on Dec 6th 2010

    This is my go to tea in the morning. I always drink a couple of these first thing. It's a good strong tea, personally my favorite of the Barry's line, Although I bought a few others that I haven't tried yet. This Tea is perfect with milk and sugar Irish style.
