About Us

Barry’s Tea was founded in 1901 by James J. Barry, grandfather of our Chairman, Peter Barry. We understand the importance of tea in Ireland. In fact we spent years perfecting our blends that have been passed on through generations of our family. 

Since the beginning our Master Blender has never compromised in his absolute commitment to fine quality tea. Our Master Blender, Denis Daly, has been blending our teas for nearly 40 years and tastes our blends three times a day to ensure that every moment you spend with our tea is as rewarding as the last.

Through word of mouth alone, our reputation continued to grow to become a much loved national brand, a fact which makes us incredibly proud.  We’ve always listened to our loyal tea drinkers. So as healthy lifestyles become more of a priority for many, we have evolved our range to now include Fruit and Herbal Infusions and Green Teas, and we hope you love them as much as we do.


To help you get to know us a little better, we’ve included some facts:

  • The Irish Tea market is worth an estimated €85 million at retail selling price.
  • Barry’s Tea accounts for 38% of all tea value sales in Ireland.
  • Barry’s Tea dominates the premium sector of the tea market, with Gold Blend as the sector market leader.
  • Barry’s Tea now has 65 employees.
  • Barry’s Tea online shop has sold tea to over 60 countries in the last year.
  • Barry’s Tea has a distribution of 75% in the Greater North Eastern Region of the United States.
