James Joyce and Irish Breakfast Tea


Plans for St Patrick’s Day?  Don’t go out, stay in!  Instead of all the craziness and partying that usually happens on this illustrious day celebrating Ireland and its culture, why not take a different route and enjoy some of the finer things in life and quieter pursuits?

Just in time for St Patrick’s Day, join the celebration of the Irish by reading one of Ireland’s most famous authors and Dublin native, James Joyce.  Dubliners is a collection of Joyce’s short stories and one of his early works, reflecting his own experiences, views and criticisms of middle class Dublin society in the early 20th century.

Joyce himself was born in Rathgar, Dublin on 02 February 1882 and attended University College Dublin.  He lived most of his life abroad in France and Switzerland, but his writing none the less was set in the town of his youth and family, Dublin.  He died on 13 January 1941, leaving as his legacy his modernist influence on literature.

You can find Dubliners here and while you’re reading: enjoy the perfect cup of tea!


Perfectly Paired!  Just in time for St Patrick’s Day we’ve found a wonderful Irish Breakfast tea for you to sip on while you read the newest installment from Countess Grey’s Book Club: Dubliners by Irish author James Joyce.

This breakfast tea is a traditional blended black tea and is a full bodied, well scented, malty Assam.  It’s robust and stands up well.

As always, remember to allow it to steep for plenty of time and enjoy!

You can find Harney & Sons Irish Breakfast Tea here.
