Franchise Opportunity

Enjoy making Tea?

Now you can make it your own Business!

House of Tea offers a fantastic franchise opportunity for ambitious individuals who want to operate their own Tea House.

Tea is a natural yet elegant and highly social product. While people in Ireland drink more tea than anyone else in Europe, 98% of all tea consumed here comes in low quality tea bags. This means the market for premium loose tea is under developed and under supplied.

We have been guiding people to choose the right tea since 2004. From the thousands of teas available on the international market we’ve fine-tuned our selection to suit the Irish palate.

Our range reflects the immense versatility of tea. From the leaves of the plant (see right picture) producers creating a wealth of different teas broken down into several categories:
Black, green, white, yellow, Oolong, Pu-Erh teas.
In addition we offer an excellent choice of herbal, Rooibos and fruit teas.

To complete the range we have a wonderful selection of tea accessories (strainers, tins etc.) and tea ware (cups, mugs, tea sets).

We have earned a reputation for providing quality loose tea to fair prices.

Besides this excellent reputation our success is based on a simple concept:
