Celtic Tea Time Treats

A good cup of tea is a fine way to start your morning, or to take a rejuvenating break in the middle of the afternoon. A pause in your day to brew and enjoy a “cuppa” helps to clear the mind and soothe any worries of the day. Let Things Celtic make tea time a regular part of your daily routine.

Things Celtic has a variety of imported teas, as well as pretty cups and mugs. We carry the very popular Barry’s Gold Blend Tea, Bewley’s Dublin Morning Tea (both from Ireland), and Brodies Famous Edinburgh Tea (from Scotland), as well as other varieties. Tea time is even more enjoyable when accompanied by something sweet. At Things Celtic, you can find many varieties of imported cookies and candy. If you like something fresh baked at tea time, we have bread and scone mixes that are easy and delicious.

Any cup of tea will seem more special when it is served in a special cup. We carry colorful mugs with artwork honoring Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, as well as classic elegant designs from Belleek Fine China. A pretty tin of Irish or Scottish tea, paired with a colorful mug, makes a thoughtful gift for any Celtic tea lover.

How To Brew The Best Celtic Tea

There is definitely a specific technique to brewing a proper cup of tea.

Fill a kettle with cold water, and bring to a gentle boil. Yes, the water needs to be boiling; making tea with water that isn’t hot enough is a common mistake. For your teapot, a ceramic one is recommended. Warm your teapot by pouring a little of the boiling water in the pot, and swirling it all around, then pour it out. This will warm your pot so your tea won’t cool off too quickly, and a cool teapot can crack if hot tea is poured in without warming it first. If you’re just making one cup, warm your teacup in the same way. Add the tea to your teapot. Use one tea bag per cup, or one teaspoon per cup if you’re using loose leaf tea. Carefully pour the hot water over the tea, and let it steep for approximately three minutes. Under-steeping is another common mistake when making tea. If you’re using loose leaf tea, pour it through a fine mesh strainer into your cup. Add sugar and milk if you prefer, then sit back and enjoy a delicious cuppa!
