One thing we’ve noticed about Ireland is that you never see people sipping coffee in to-go cups. It’s not because there isn’t any coffee. There’s plenty, and even more tea. It’s just not something you carry around. The difference seems to be that drinking coffee and tea in Ireland is a social event. Whenever two or more people are gathered, tea is there. And although some might drink a cup on their own, most would wait to have it with others if at all possible.
So who will you chat to over your next cuppa?
