A family business founded in 1901…

Barry’s Tea was founded in 1901 by James J. Barry, grandfather of Peter Barry. From the very beginning, quality was at the heart of our family’s business. In 1934, Anthony Barry was awarded the Empire Cup for tea blending, confirming his expertise in the tea trade. This tradition of quality without compromise continues to this day.

Taste Brand Barry's Tea

Our strongest advocates are our loyal customers…

Through word of mouth alone, Barry’s reputation continued to grow and by the mid-1980s Barry’s Tea had become a much-loved national brand in Ireland. At Barry’s Tea, they have always listened to their loyal tea drinkers. So as healthy lifestyles become more of a priority for many, they have evolved the range to include Fruit and Herbal Infusions and Green Teas.

Relevance to the market

As the tea market matures in Australia, we feel there is a place for premium dark teas. A tea that has been handcrafted for decades. We are delighted to see Barry’s Tea has made that jump beyond the expat consumer and is enjoyed by thousands of loyal Australian customers.
