A family run business for over 100 years Thompsons now go on to bigger and better things claiming several Great Taste Awards for their blends.
Here’s where it starts… So I am sat ready with my China cup and a pack of Punjana and my kettle has just boiled – I am really exited about this. I start pouring just off the boil water onto my bag and let the brewing commence, leaving the tea for a few minutes whilst I savour the aroma and collect milk from the fridge.
Minutes later I take a sip of the dark nectar before adding the milk. The tea is woody, earthy and very refreshing on a dull day- just perfect for those gloomy winter mornings!
I then add milk. I feel the tea comes alive giving it a creamy comforting flavour that is the colour of golden sandy beaches-No sugar please this doesn’t need any help!
There is absolutely nothing I can fault about this tea, its refreshing, tasty and comforting- what more could I want?
The quote “We love it…we think you will too!” is very fitting as this is quite possibly my hero Kenyan Assam.
Thompsons describes this tea as-
“Only the finest Assam and Kenyan teas are selected for Punjana.
This Guild of fine foods 2 Gold Star Winner is recognized 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”.
Having tried the Punjana before reading the Thompsons description I think it’s safe to say I agree entirely with their statement.
