Belfast, Northern 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.

I HAVE DRANK THIS BRAND OF TEA IN BOTH CAFFEINE AND DECAF AND HAVE TO SAY IT IS THE VERY BEST SMOOTH TASTING TEA. EVERYONE WHO HAS TASTED IT AT MY HOUSE WANTS TO KNOW WHAT BRAND IT WAS AND WHERE DID I BUY IT--IT IS THAT GOOD. WHEN I SWITCHED TO THE DECAF VERSION OF IT I THOUGHT I WOULD BE SACRIFICING TASTE AND THIS WAS NOT TRUE AT ALL. LOVE THE DECAF VERSION. TRY IT -- YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED AND TEADOG IS THE PLACE TO ORDER IT FOR PROMPT, ACCURATE SERVICE
I've ordered Punjana, a tea from Thompson's of Belfast, for years now. I wondered if I was missing something better, though. I recently restocked and besides Punjana I got Typhoo decaf and Marks & Spencer decaf. I had a family member help me set up blind taste testing. Punjana was the winner in our family tasting. I doubt if any decaffeinated tea will be as good as real tea, but Punjana decaf brew a pretty good cup.
We are big tea drinkers in our house and were looking for a decaf with flavor. Purchased this tea after consulting with the folks at teadog and I must say we love it! You would never know it is decaf. It has a wonderful, rich taste.
Very smooth decaf, not bitter at all! Very Happy with this tea!
This was my 1st ever purchase of decaffeinated tea and I must say that I'm impressed. It still retains the robust, malty flavor that I love.
Like to have a cup of tea before bedtime. It has to be decaf......at that time of day.....
This tea is excellent
Punjana has been our favorite Irish tea for a long time. When the doctor mandated a switch to decaf...We were sure we would have to get used to the watery, lack luster taste of a decaf tea bag. NOT SO. Punjana decaf still has all the same flavor of the regular variety. The best "tea-drinkers" tea.
Punjana makes the best decaf...nothing else comes close. And teadog.com delivers on time at a good price. Can't beat that!
needed a decaf incase I wanted a cup before bed......Is very good for decaf, but my fav is Titantic!!
Thompson's Punjana Decaffeinated tea is such an enjoyable beverage! I drink a lot of tea and needed a GOOD decaffeinated tea. Thompson's Punjana Decaffeinated is perfect! The flavor is awesome -- not bitter or weak! I highly recommend this tea!
I'm really impressed with the Punjana Decaf tea, doesn't taste like so many wimpy decaf teas, it's robust, holds up to milk and sugar, isn't bitter, it's my new favorite. Thank you Teadog for providing quality teas and giving your customers a venue to post ratings so others can make an informed decision when they purchase.
Delicious, satisfying tea, never would know it's decaffeinated. One bag makes a pot, and I work my way through it every night.
