I’ve always been a bit of a tea freak. I drink about four or five cups of Lyons a day! That may seem like a lot , but apparently its average in Ireland. After all, we have the highest number of tea drinkers per capita!
Ireland has always been thought of as a tea drinking nation – but as the Celtic Tiger hit the country’s economy, coffee became a hip alternative to the cuppa cha. Words like “grande”, “frapaccino” and “skinny latte” seeped into our lexicon and there’s no going back. Or is there?
This is what my radio documentary is all about. What is Ireland’s national drink? Are we all still drinking tea like our grannies, and their grannies before them? Are people more hooked on an Americano? and the big question is: why? What kind of image is associated with the beverages?
So – please help me out! Take my poll – its only one question afterall.
Tell your friends. Tell your friends’ friends. I need to know the answer!
Please and thank you
