Lyons Original Blend is the best-selling tea in Ireland, and has been a favourite for well over a century. Blended in Dublin, Lyons Original Blend tea features the usual Kenyan and Assam leaves, but what makes it stand out is the addition of Ceylon leaves, grown high on the hills of Sri Lanka, which impart a light but distinctive flowery bouquet unusual in an everyday black tea.
The teabag itself is pyramidal in shape, which creates more space inside the bag for the tea leaves to move around. This makes for an even tastier cup of tea and ensures as much Lyons tea flavour finds its way into the water as possible. The bags are biodegradable too, so simply throw them in the compost when you’re done with them.
Of course, if you’re familiar with Lyons tea from Ireland, you already know what you’re going to get, and you don’t need us to convince you. But if you’re new to the world of Irish tea, this is a great place to start. Smooth but strong, fresh and fragrant, it hits the spot every time.
