Many people have experienced or will experience the death of someone close during these exceptional circumstances. It may be a COVID-related death, a death from other causes, or a previous bereavement that you are finding more difficult at this time. Irish Hospice Foundation launched the Bereavement Support Line service in June 2020 as a response to the pandemic, and to support the many people grieving in isolation.

Having the Bereavement Support Line number displayed on this new Master Blend product means that more people who need the service will know of its availability. Apart from the awareness raised, with every purchase, Irish Hospice Foundation will receive a 10 cents donation towards the Line

McEntee’s Fine Teas is a family business run by a married couple, Donal and Helen McEntee in Co. Louth, Ireland. Both are passionate tea drinkers who work to supply quality tea to Ireland and care about their community.

Tea is known for its calming and reassuring qualities, and IHF Bereavement Support Line offers that comfort and reassurance to hundreds of bereaved people in the country.

We’re delighted to partner up with Irish Hospice Foundation to raise awareness for a crucial service, the IHF Bereavement Support Line. We are happy to share that for every purchase of our Loose-Leaf Master Blend tea we will donate 10 cents towards this vital service. We also encourage people in Louth who are dealing with bereavement and finding it particularly difficult in these exceptional times to call the line. You will receive the support and comfort that you deserve.
