Irish Fact of the Day #3

Ireland has the Highest per capita consumption rate of tea in the world ( Some might argue that Turkey and England have a greater consumption based on weight of actual tea leaves and brewing process). The quality of tea drunk in Ireland is also the highest in the world and is still rising. The Irish public is certainly the most discerning when it come to tea; in fact, with regard to taste and leaf appearance, quality is an obsession, and low quality tea does not sell at any price.The average Irishman consumes 6-7 cups of tea per day.
