Brand History:
Punjana Limited.
Belfast, Nortern Ireland

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.

Punjana tea

This is the tea my Ulster family always brought back to the states. Brews a strong cup without bitterness. Tea dog is the best purveyor of this excellent brew.

Great afternoon tea

I am in the habit of taking tea in the early morning and mid afternoon. My go “ go to “ in the morning is the Thompson’s Irish Breakfast tea. Outstanding.
In the afternoon however the Signiture tea by Thompson’s is a great choice both for tast and variety. Highly recommend it.

Clayton Bulice

I like this tea! It is full flavored and does not have a bitter aftertaste. One of the best blends available! I recommend it to everyone who likes tea hot.

A Favorite

This is our family's favorite black tea, first gifted to us by a niece living in Ireland. It has a full round taste without being harsh and is a favorite we order again and again. And Teadog's service is excellent.
