Punjana Titanic Tea

Did you manage to see the Yardman cycle on Sunday? We wish we could’ve done it, but Sunday is our St George’s Market Day…as much as we love the market…it does interfere with attending some of the huge number of events going on in Belfast sometimes.
One of the organisers of the event, Martin Miller is an old schoolmate of Ross Thompson, from Thompson’s Family Teas, the family behind our chums at Punjana. Thompson Family Teas supported the event which helped raise funds for Bowel Cancer UK, and which was organised in memory of Martin’s wife, Rosi Kirker-Miller.

The local tea company was established in 1896, and the founder, Robert Thompson would have watched the Titanic being built in the neighbouring shipyard 100 years ago, so it felt appropriate to sponsor such a great cause the day after Titanic Belfast opened.

Thompson’s are also the sole supplier of tea for Titanic Belfast and even sell Titanic Tea in the shop. Their brand, Punjana Tea is one of Northern Ireland’s best loved teas and we recently had the pleasure of dealing with them to get permission to use their name on one of our new designs.

It’s great to see a local company still doing so well over 100 years later, and it’s great to see them supporting their friends and helping them raise funds for their charity.

    this tea was tried for the first time today and I really enjoyed that there was no acidity to the taste that it was smooth. Please answer me one question where is the tea grown. I know it is blended in Belfast but doesn’t say where it is grown. thank you.
