Stop by for a pot of tea and some scones…

Our history begins with Tea. Some of you have been following us through the decades. Equally, there are those of you that know us only for your source of malt based beverages (beer and whiskey) and ask us “why the tea?”

We equally enjoy our comforts of a proper pot of tea. Allow life to slow to a still for a while. Or come together with family and friends. Delight the senses on many levels while relaxing in the warmth that is McCarthy’s. Let us show you what we can do with tea and, then, you will understand…why the tea.

Come sit with your favorite cuppa (pats chair)…
and we’ll share with you the intent behind the tea.

Tea is comfort. Tea is social, cultural, healthful. Tea, for some, is just a part of everyday life. It nurtures. It awakens. It provides that caffeine buzz.

Some of our top sellers, like Cream Irish Breakfast* and Scottish Breakfast, contain nearly as much caffeine as coffee. Conversely, two of our very popular teas are naturally, caffeine-free Rooibos based blends.

Rooibos {ROY-boss} is a perennial, nearly shrub like plant from South Africa that produces aromatic, smooth teas. Our Casablanca is full of antioxidants, vitamins C, B1, B6, E and other beneficial minerals and phyto estrogens. Did you know Earl Gray, a black leaf tea, has natural compounds to aid the body? The Bergamot and Citrus Oils in Earl Gray create an aromatherapy like relaxation as well. In total, we have 23 selections of loose leaf teas to chose from and enjoy.

 

Having fun with our teas

We have used them in cocktails like our Rory McElroy, our Vanilla Chai Tea cocktail and countless alcoholic libations in the past. Our bakery uses Cream Earl Gray daily! Our Sticky Toffee Pudding even benefits from a good tea soak.

Our creme brulee features our teas from time to time. Ever have English Breakfast brined chicken? A favorite at our Outlander Dinner…guests loved it!

Several specialty blends of teas have been our chilled feature of the day. Did you know we will serve any of our teas hot or chilled?

*There is no cream in our “cream” teas. It simply refers to a fermentation process that creates a smoother, creamy mouthfeel after the tea is prepared. The tea “blossoms” with the addition of dairy, but it is certainly not necessary to enjoy these bold, full-bodied, flowery teas.

anyone for a spot of tea?

A personal favorite of Neville’s for quaint fun is an informal tea party. We do not do “High Tea” at McCarthy’s, BUT, ask your server, especially if you have the wee ones with you, for our beautiful mismatched china in the Great Room for an impromptu tea party. In the words of Gru, “Clinkety clink. Clinkety clink.”

Cozy Holidays with Tea

One last bit of fun. Yearly, during the Holiday Season, we expand on all things tea. Candy cane tea infusers, tins brimming with our best sellers, and, for 2017, assorted gift baskets with teas, shortbread coins, jams and even our bakery mixes. Teas and tea accessories are found both in the Pub and in at Donegal Square (right next door).

Requests for gift baskets and loose leaf teas by the ounce can be addressed to Janet@RedStagPub.com. Our selections for the season will, typically, be available by November 15th every year. Loose leaf tea may be ordered year around.
