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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
