About Nambarrie

One of Northern Ireland’s favourite teas - familiar, strong and loved for generations!

Nambarrie was launched back in 1860 and for over 150 years has been our wee country’s beloved bold and hearty tea that can be relied on for the perfect cuppa at any time of the day.

Nambarrie Blend – nice and strong!

What makes it so “nice and strong”? Nambarrie is a lovely blend of bold Kenyan and Assam teas. Both regions of East Africa and India are famous for producing strong and rich black teas that pack a punch – and the combination of the two is truly unbeatable. This comforting combo has been a staple of every household since its inception and continues to be passed down the generations.

There’s something about a cup of Nambarrie that transports you back to the kitchen tea table of childhood; always warming, always comforting, always a welcome pick me up. Whether it’s the first cuppa of the morning, a truly satisfying tea break from work or a chat with a friend, nothing quite beats a cup of Nambarrie. It’s the perfect warming comforter on your return from a long walk, too. With its rich, caramel brown liquor and homely aroma, it’s no wonder Nambarrie holds such a special place in the heart of Northern Ireland.

In other words: The best of builder’s teas in the world! (We humbly brag).

Nambarrie Design - A Good Looking Blend

The design of bright bold reds and yellows really reflects the brightness and boldness of Nambarrie tea. The stunning illustrations of Belfast city centre (where Nambarrie was first launched) nestling in the centre of the Northern Irish countryside really evokes the sense of nostalgia for this old favourite. It could well be sunrise or sunset – showing that yet again a cup of Nambarrie is welcome at any time of the day.

The tea bags now come in foil-sealed pouches to keep that freshness in and are available in batches of 50, 100 or 200 and a 250g loose leaf tea pack. The boxes are also designed to lock in freshness and are ultra easy to open and close with a click-lock function.

Breakfast With Nambarrie - Favourite Breakfast

What better way to start your day than with a cup of nice and strong Nambarrie?

It’s strength means it goes mouth-wateringly well with your Ulster Fry – the king of breakfast fry ups as we all know. For those who don’t: what makes the Ulster Fry a legend amongst its fellows is the potato bread and soda bread that traditionally accompany it.

And Veda – that delicious malted bread unique to the shores of Northern Ireland, just like Nambarrie.
