We Irish people love our tea, so we thought it was only right that we create a list of where to get the best cuppa in the capital.
While most people might debate about which tea brand is better (Lyons, obviously), drinking tea outside of your home can be a little more tricky. Some places have mugs that are too small, use a bad blend of leaves or are just uncomfortable in general, which can all combine to create an unsatisfactory tea-drinking experience.
A home-brewed cuppa is usually the best way to go, but we think we’ve found five places to drink tea in Dublin that will satisfy your thirst. Read on to find out more about our five favourite places to drink tea in Dublin.

One of the only places in Dublin that is alcohol-free and open late, Accents Coffee & Tea Lounge is a haven for tea in Dublin. With a huge range of loose-leaf teas from Suki Tea on offer, you'll definitely be able to find a brew to enjoy.
