Time for tea
If you can bear the inevitable “go on, you will, you will, you will” gags, the Mrs Doyle’s range of prettily packaged loose leaf teas would make lovely stocking fillers for those who enjoy a quality cuppa.
There are teas for specific moments – Chill Out, Happy and Sleepy – as well as a Hangover blend that might come in handy this month. The teas (€4.85) can be ordered online at mrsdoylestea.ie, and are on sale in Avoca and Kilkenny shops, as well as Wright’s at Dublin airport.
The accompanying range of chocolates and jams is made for Mrs Doyle’s by a social enterprise unit in Athboy, Co Meath staffed by young people with learning disabilities.
