Please note: The Punjana name has always been part of Thompson's Family Teas. On these teas, the name Thompson's Family Teas is a large part of the packaging. It is all produced by the same tea makers.
Did you know that the Titanic was made in Belfast, the home of Punjana Tea. Many of the workers that built the Titanic probably drank Punjana Tea.
Titanic Tea is a new tea created by Punjana to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the Titanic.
Punjana has been making tea in Belfast since 1888.
Tea Leaves for Africa and India.
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.

My favorite tea, hands-down.
Tried this tea a number of time. Poor quality. You should refund price or send another tea: Punjana Original, Scottish, or Irish.
I like a rather strong, black tea. This tea is PERFECT! I love it! I was thrilled to see it available again!
This is one of my favorites! I love a cup in the evening - nice and smooth, with no bitter aftertaste.
I love Thompson Titanic, it is a hearty, elegant tea. It is good anytime, but especially at breakfast.
LOVE this blend. I find the taste to be smooth and rich. When I have to re-order, I choose not to drink tea until I receive my order. I would rather drink water....
Have a cup of it nightly. Very pleasant blend!
I discovered Thompsonﾒs Family Teas about a year ago. This is the first time for the Titantic Blend. I really like the teas from Northern Ireland because they uuse a bnd of Kenya Highlands teas, Rwanda teas, and Assam tea from the Himalayas. I really enjoy the African teas, which are extremely hard to get in the USA. I became familiar with them teaching in the DRC Congo and living in South Africa. The blend is really pleasing and a great alternative to traditional English Breakfast Tea.
Thompson's of Belfast makes lovely teas, and this TITANIC blend is no exception to that rule. The Tannins are the smoothest of any Cuppa which I have taste-tested. May I add that I am happy that the Thompson family are not parsimonious when it comes to the amount of ASSAM tea which they use as a flavour-base. Highly recommended. .
This tea is so good, so comforting.
My very favorite tea!!!
This has to be one of the nicest teas I've tasted, even with tea bag left in cup tea does not become bitter.
Glad I found Titanic Tea.
Hmmm, probably wont buy again.
