The most popular blend from Thompson’s Family Teas, a family owned company from Northern Ireland.
Only the finest Assam and Kenyan teas are selected for Punjana’s Original blend
This particular blend has been a success year after year at the Guild of Fine Foods Awards. This was repeated in 2011 where it was a Double Gold Star Winner. It was recognised as having “real depth of flavour whilst displaying a bright refreshing cup”.
Punjana enjoys an ever increasing following from those who yearn for tea with more taste and flavour.

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.
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!
