The Story behind the business: Intelligent Tea emerged in 2014 after many years of careful consideration and experimentation. It was set up by chef and herbalist Freda Wolfe, three years after qualifying as a herbalist, from the School of Herbal Medicine, Portlaoise . She decided to make a range of great tasting, healing herbal teas, using native Irish herbs and plants. Freda started selling her tea 3 years ago in Templebar Market. She works with Irish growers to produce the Single Estate 100% Irish grown range. Both Killruddery Estate, Wicklow and Nick Hill ,Carlow grow for Intelligent Tea presently. Freda is also a beekeeper, minding clever bees in Dublin & Wicklow and Clever Honey can be found for sale at her stall. Intelligent Tea designer Laura Dunne has been an important element in the development of the brand. Laura grew up on an organic, herb focused smallholding in Naul, so she really understood the idea and nailed the design.
