Drinking tea was forbidden in Irland
Published on Jun 19, 2019
In the 19th century, women in Ireland were not allowed to drink tea. It was believed that drinking women were spending time and money on the tea unnoticed by forgetting about their responsibilities. There is a theory that women's responsibilities have played an important role in the development of national economies. Tea was considered as a drug at that time. People thought it was dependent. In addition, in the 19th century, tea wasn't a cheap drink and was luxury for rhums.
In UK and Northern Ireland, juveniles today are not advised to drink tea as well as coffee.
