Punjana Limited.

A century ago, Punjana Limited, the tea importer and blender, was beginning its life near the docklands in Belfast. Originally founded by McArthur and Willis, the Thompson family made their mark in 1896 when Robert Samuel Thompson became a partner.

Robert Samuel Thompson was joined in the post war years by James and Tony Thompson and today Ross and David Thompson carry on the traditional skill of tea tasting and blending in much the same way as has been done since the company was founded.

Robert Samuel Thompson originally entered the tea trade in 1887, and studied the art of tea tasting. He soon was made a partner in McArthur and Willis from 1896. He became known for his uncompromising devotion to quality and led the company for 51 years.

As the 20th Century progressed, the connection with the Thompson family was strengthened and in post-war years, James and Tony Thompson became partners in the company. They were responsible for the birth of the Punjana brand and developed it until they retired in the late 1980´s.

The joint managing directors of Punjana Limited, today carry on the traditional job of tea tasting and selecting the company´s teas, in much the same way as has been done since the company was founded in 1896.

Very good

Punjana is a great tea!

Enjoyed Punjana tea on both of our trips to Ireland and it has become my wife’s tea of choice every morning. Punjana is noticeably better than anything we can buy in our local grocery, so Teadog is our reliable source of that wonderful tea!

Not my cuppa tea! Not strong enough!

I'm sure Americans will love the tea. Sorry I'm from the UK. Grew up drinking much stronger tea.. We called it 'builders' in those days.
P.G. Tips was fine til the company was taken over by Unilever a few years ago.
