Who we Are

Niks Tea started like many Irish family businesses at the kitchen table. We are great tea drinkers but in 2011 when Niks Tea began there was very little quality Irish leaf tea blends available to buy locally or buy tea online. We tested the waters at local farmers markets & food events and were delighted to find really enthusiastic speciality tea drinkers who loved our teas.

From these humble beginnings Niks Tea blends have achieved the highest accolades winning many national food awards, listings in flagship supermarkets, speciality & health food retail stores and since 2016 our catering range is served in many café’s, restaurants & hotels throughout the country.

Our Mission
Niks Tea aims to create Organic Herbal teas that are healthy & full of exciting flavours for experimental & experienced tea enthusiasts. We are committed to an ecological production process & packaging plan and strive to create a memorable & enjoyable tea experience that’s affordable and convenient for customers to source & prepare.

Awards

Since first entering the Blas na hEireann Irish Food Awards in 2013 Niks Tea has achieved many Gold Silver & Bronze Awards in recognition of our innovation and creative tea. We transform everyday loose Tea and elevate, creating new flavours like Irish Whiskey Cream Liqueur which won many Gold awards.

Winning awards and gaining recognition from international experts in the business really boosts our popularity with stockists & customers who buy tea online that can be confident they are tasting & serving the best.

Niks Tea HQ

An ambitious expansion move in January 2019 was fulfilled following 5 very happy years in Terenure Enterprise Centre.  Niks Tea moved to a fully custom fitted warehouse in Greenogue Business Park, Rathcoole. Our aim to become a sustainable & fully in-house production & packing facility was achieved.  Our 5 Year target led commitment to implement sustainable practices with Bord Bia through the Origin Green program includes a commitment to sourcing & developing organic tea varieties packed in compostable & Biodegradable materials & also supporting sports  & community initiatives & events locally. Niks Organic  Pantry & Neighbourfood.ie are part of the local involvement to the community.
