Many songs have been written about twinkling eyes, but none perhaps as memorable as the 1912 ballad, “When Irish Eyes are Smiling”. According to the famous ditty, when Irish eyes smile, things couldn’t be grander:

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.

The song, which had been a hit from the moment it was published, gained widespread attention during the 1985 “Shamrock Summit”. The summit, a series of talks held on St. Patrick’s Day between the United States and Canada, saw then former President Ronald Reagan and Prime Minister Brian Mulroney sing the song with a hopeful glint in their eyes at the summit’s close. We doubt either leader had the singing voice of an angel, but the story lives on nonetheless.

To commemorate the song and promote unity between the nations, we thought we’d develop a tea blend that’s sure to get anyone smiling, Irish or not – Irish Eyes Green Tea. Based on a legendary Irish blend, Irish Eyes Green blends the flavors of Earl Grey with the mild grassiness of high grown Ceylon green leaf. To this we’ve added a touch of Irish lucky shamrocks for added zip. The perfect tea for St. Patrick’s day or any day you're feeling lucky!!

Hot Tea Method

When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 180°F or 90°C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup, let the tea steep for about 3 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment - do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low - add more water, and so on and so on - until the flavor of the tea is exhausted. Look at the pattern of the leaves, they foretell your fortune.

Alternatively as with all top quality teas, scoop 2-4 teaspoons of tea into the teapot, pour in boiling water that has been freshly drawn (previously boiled water has lost most of its oxygen and therefore tends to be flat tasting), steep for 2-4 minutes (to taste), stir (virtually all the leaves will sink), pour into your cup but do not add milk or sugar since green tea is enjoyed ‘straight-up’.

Iced Tea Method

(to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.]
