An authentic Irish tea. Punjana Tea has been blended in Belfast since 1896.
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.

Favorite tea, hands down.
This is a very strong 2 cup teabag. Excellent taste. I would order again.
Love this tea. Always have a supple on hand and also give to family and friends who visit.
I am a big fan of the "Punjana Irsh Breakfast tea". In my humble opinion, its the best black tea one can drink! I am very happy the tea dog has it in their inventory. As always, my orders arrive within the time stated and are fresh!
Once I had tasted this tea could never go back to the other popular brands. Very nice after taste and full bodied. I gave up coffee after this satisfying Breakfast beverage.
I have tried many brands of Irish Breakfast Tea, Thompson's is the top of the group. Consistently full of flavor. "It puts a wee sparkle in me eye every mornin'!"
And allow me to say that as I type at 4 pm I am enjoying a cuppa Thompsons (Punjana) Irish Breakfast Tea. It is great anytime, not just for breakfast
Mixed with milk and sugar this tea can almost substitute a meal!
Nothing special. I was missing that very robust Irish Tea experience I was hoping for. Its a nice tea, but its not the super robust Irish tea I was hoping for.
Great tea. Every cup. Favorite.
A favorite in my tea room.
I used to buy mine from Big Lots for $2.50 a box. I spoke with the Manager at one store and he said we no longer carry it. Best tea my wife and I ever had, but now it is more expensive than our medications, so no more for us.
It's very good tea! Probably why I keep ordering it for friends and family.
