Thompson Family Teas, who own Northern Ireland's best-selling tea, Punjana, have been blending and packing their award-winning range of teas in Belfast for over a century.
In 1896 Robert S Thompson trained in the art of tea tasting and soon became known for his devotion to quality. As third generation Ross and David Thompson carry on the family's passion for tea, personally tasting and selecting every leaf for their award-winning range of teas.
Joint Managing Director, Ross Thompson explains "Our mission has always been to create the "Perfect Everyday Cuppa", a tea that has superior taste and flavour whilst representing great value for money. We believe that we have achieved this and naturally we were thrilled, when we won an unprecedented 23 Stars in this year's Great Taste Awards 2016. Indeed their beloved Punjana brand won the maximum 3 Stars, which means that Punjana has won more Great Taste Awards than any other blended tea bag product over the last 10 years.
Other of Thompson's multiple Star winners this year included their Irish Breakfast Blend, Signature Blend, Decaf' and Punjana loose tea.
