Another award-winning tea. Punjana Original Blend has won 2 gold stars at the Guild of Fine Foods, which is often called the Food Oscars. This tea has a real depth of flavor.

Punjana has been making tea in Belfast since 1888.

Tea Leaves for Kenya (Africa) and Assam (India).

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.

    Excellent brew

    Posted by Lieutenant Bob on Sep 6th 2018

    I usually have a cup of coffee towards the middle of my shift. Switched over to Punjana, quite refreshing and no coffee aftertaste.

    Very excellent brew!

    I used to get this tea shipped to me from Ireland, so happy to find Teadog. The best tea there is and excellent service form Teadog. My tea arrived today and now I am so happy.

    The only black tea I drink

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 26th 2018

    This is my all time favorite black tea. I was introduced to it while visiting Ireland last year. Now, it is the only black tea I drink after breakfast. Other brands tend to upset my stomach.

    My favorite

    Posted by Don on Nov 20th 2017

    Best robust flavor in black tea I've found in 30 years. Better than Lipton's or Red Rose. Maybe as good as a tin of imported Indian Liption's I got at a Sikh grocery store many years ago.

    Great afternoon tea

    Posted by Rob on Oct 27th 2017

    My wife has been drinking the Pujana decaf and loved the body and flavor of this tea. I decided to try the original blend and think this tea delivers on body and full flavor. It is my afternoon pick me up with milk and sugar. If I didn't drink coffee in the morning (roasted by myself), this would be my morning choice too.
