So, Barry's Tea have just launched their very own cocktail range, and it's kind of amazing.
The ''tea-inspired cocktails'' were created by mixologist, Conor Myers, for the Barry's cocktail bar at this year's Taste of Dublin festival.
There are three recipes on offer and to be honest, they all sound delicious.
Golden Dew – Barry’s Gold Blend, Tullamore D.E.W. Whiskey, ginger & Irish honey cordial, lime & ginger ale.
Berry Fizz – Barry’s Very Berry Tea, Hendrick’s Gin, cranberry juice, Irish elderflower cordial, fresh lemon & soda water.
Green Tea Mojito – Barry’s Natural Green Tea, Skyy vodka, basil syrup, fresh mint, lime & soda water.
These babies are only around from June 15 – June 18, so make sure to pop down to the Taste of Dublin festival to get your hands on one.
Any Irish person knows that we consider a good cup of Barry's Tea to be a bit of a national treasure and it seems that one of our favourite talented exports is sharing this knowledge with the world.
Saoirse Ronan, who is getting ready to hit the Golden Globes this weekend, had a little treat in store for her friends at the Hollywood Foreign Press Office (HEPA).
According to the Irish Independent, the Brooklyn star sent each member of the organisation a box of Barry's Tea along with a personal, handwritten note with each gift. Each box even included hand drawn diagrams on how to create the perfect cuppa.
She is too adorable!
"There is nothing that reminds me of home more than Barry's Tea," said the personalised letters.
"So as a gesture of my sincere gratitude, I wanted to share a piece of my home with you."
The HEPA announced last month that they had nominated the 21-year-old for two Golden Globes this year off the back of her spectacular performance as Eilis in the hit film, Brooklyn.
And it seems that Saorise found a fitting, Irish way to thank them.
The Carlow native has always cited a good cup of Irish tea to uplift her if she ever gets a bout of homesickness.
Once those Hollywood big shots get a sip of a good cup of Barry's, we reckon she has a great shot at a win.
An Irish company that distributes local foods over to Ozzie has closed a major deal.
Eamon Eastwood’s Taste Ireland has signed a contract with Australian retail giants Coles to stock some of our favorite foods such as Tayto crisps, Barry’s Tea, and Club Orange in about 600 shops across Australia and New Zealand.
It’s unsurprising that he was able to close such a deal, since there was huge demand for last year’s limited edition Tayto Milk Chocolate bar down under.
Although 600 isn’t a huge number, it certainly is a good start and the very fact that we will be able to get Irish food abroad, is touching itself.
Who knows, today its Australia but tomorrow it could be the U.S – there’s nothing wrong with wishful thinking.
