One of my absolute favourite everyday brews.

Smooth, refreshing, and crisp! A delight to drink.

I ordered this tea along with some of the Irish Breakfast tea. The Original is great for an everyday breakfast tea. It’s got a warm, smooth flavour and can be diluted by using only one bag or made stronger by using two bags. With one tea bag being enough to fill an entire large teapot, I find that I got a lot of bang for my buck and that the tea will last me a long time. I definitely recommend this tea and will buy it again when I run out.

I started out drinking only green tea, branching out to many loose teas of all kinds. Oddly I got into black tea years later, and in the last few years have really begun to enjoy British black tea blends. They can be very comforting, tasty, and unpretentious. My every day brew has been Yorkshire or Yorkshire Gold for several years. But I enjoy comparing it to other offerings of all companies, always coming back to them.

I never really expect any of those I try to surpass it, but for my tastes, Punjana does. It’s a blend of Assam and Kenyan leaves, much like many others of its kind. Somehow it tastes fresher though. Punjana is blended by the Thompson Family in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Many reviews of teas say they’re strong, but not bitter. I’m always skeptical when I read that, but to me it applies for this blend. In short, I have a new everyday tea to enjoy(and always lots of other teas to always try too.) I recently tried their Signature Blend and will do a separate review for it some time, but my taste buds like this one a little better.

We see this once in a while at our local Big Lots, which is always potluck…what you get is not necessarily what you’ll get next week But it’s on my short list to grab next time I see it.

I’ve seen the Irish Breakfast in the green bag at mine. But when I went to get one finally, it was gone. Mine suddenly cut back on that selection. My best cost option was ordering straight from them. I recently messaged them on Facebook asking a question and they sent me a free mug all the way from there. Very cool. I’d definitely recommend it and hope it’s to your taste!

I just realized we’re both in Missouri. I’m close to KC though.

Southwest corner here.

I have a huge soft spot for both Yorkshire and Yorkshire Gold from Taylors of Harrogate. I would probably like this if it displays any similarity to either of those blends.

quietcreation

I still very much like those and think anyone that appreciates them would like this too.

gmathis

Second that. Very similar to Yorkshire; maybe a little less sharp around the edges.

quietcreation

I’d say that’s accurate. Good to hear you got some.

gmathis

Oh, good grief..dementia is sneaking up on me. I read “Thompsons” and interpreted it as “Barry’s.” (So easy to mix up the similar spelling, eh?) No, I haven’t rousted out any Thompson’s yet. Just call me Miss Daisy and grab my driver’s license before I do some real damage :)

quietcreation

Haha nice. I do also like Barry’s.

quietcreation

I honestly dont know if I like this or Yorkshire Gold more. They’re different but I may like them equally. Which is still saying a lot.

Dad replaced the water filter yesterday.
My morning cuppa builder’s tasted weird and weak today :(

I better run the tap for a few minutes before I use it for my tea.

A wonderfully smooth, hearty blend of Indian teas. One of my favorites to wake up to, or for a relaxing evening.

Don’t expect tang, but instead a warming embrace.

Ah yes…this was the tea that introduced me to the blends the Thompsons family had to offer. I never would have guessed a wee factory in Northern Ireland was where this delicious tea was blended! A popular tea in Northern Ireland, i cant imagine it will be long before word spreads all over the world. I never go anywhere without first smuggling a pack of Punjana into my case. Its true what they say, once you’ve tasted Thompsons you can never go back!
