One of the guys down at the Folk Museum once told a group of us that the Irish drink more tea per head of population than any other group in the world, but some way. I can’t believe that is still true as the coffee bar is now ubiquitous north and south of the border, but it seems our oul wans knew a thing or two about health. Tea is in fact healthier than than water. It’s also good for your teeth!!
