From Punjana (Thompson's Family Teas)

This luxurious blend produces a rich rounded character, thanks to Assams finest leaves, and a bright fresh finish derived from tea leaves which are picked from the high grown slopes in the prestigious East of Rift Valley region of Kenya.

Punjana Irish Breakfast has recently discovered a fan base in the United States, and, appropriately, the first shipment arrived safely ashore in Boston, where thankfully there was no repetition of the infamous Boston Tea Party in 1773.

This is a blend of assam and Kenyan tea which is blended in Belfast. It is a large tea bag without any strings. This is an excellent breakfast tea. I can distinguish both teas in this blend. It is inexpensive ($3 for 80 bags). At 3 minutes it steeps up dark with no bitterness and only slight astringency. I really enjoyed this tea, but then I love strong teas.

Very nice surprise — picked some of this up at a Hiller’s Market in Commerce, Michigan for a sale price of $6.00, and thought it tasted as good or better than Twining’s Irish Breakfast tea. Comes in a foil packet shaped more or less like a box, with the bags attached in pairs of two, similar to how I’ve had tea bags that I bought in England. (Unlike the usual US packaging, which is single bags in foil-lined pouches.) All in all, an excellent tea that has a nice maltiness to it, and stands up well to milk/cream and sugar.

Fantastic!!! It’s hard to beat the Thompson’s Family Teas Original blend, but by George does this come close! Very refreshing, but thats hardly surprising when you can see the gardens they pick and blend from. As i say, you can always rely on a family business to maintain high quality. The Thompsons have been delighting the lovely people of the UK for 3 generations of Thompson’s now – and long may this continue!!

One of the best teas i have tasted in my time…and thats saying something! Its hard to believe this is an Irish Breakfast tea that is actually made in that little country of Northern Ireland. Seems this is a family owned tea company thats now on the 3rd generation! A strong tea that brews to a great looking colour – and the taste certainly doesnt disappoint. Punjana, my favourite.

I always brewed with 2 bags, but this tea was never as strong as I wanted it to be. The only brews that came out strong enough had loose leaves from the top and bottom of the stack. The flavor was basically what I would expect from an Irish breakfast tea, just too weak.

Dark non bitter double cup or pot full, it is worth the price @ $3 per 80 bags. The bag is large and will make a small pot of tea about 3-4 cup size. I’m not an expert tea taster but this is a winner in every sense. Even after refilling a cup 3x it never tastes metallic or bitter. A fine mixture of subtle but defined varieties of leaf from assam and Kenya. The difference is noticable and notable.

I completely adore this tea. It’s such a lovely blend – perfectly balanced, not too bitter or too acidic. It has a rich, almost smokey flavor. And it really is the perfect pick-me-up in the morning. Or any time, really. I always have mine with milk and sweetener, and it’s just a dream.

This tea always brings me right back home! A truly excellent cup of tea. I always like the comforting feeling of knowing this is a family run business – it somehow makes it taste better haha!

This tea is the very definition of Irish breakfast, in tea bag form. Strong, well-paired with milk and sugar, while capable of giving some get-up-and-go. I don’t find it to be overly bitter, but admittedly, I’ve only had this tea with milk and sugar.
