Good tea … this price way to high
Wonderful taste and color, without bitterness. Superb tea!
Being fussy about taste, preferring strong brews, but disliking bitterness, I had always considered Taylor’s English Breakfast Tea to be my favourites among bagged teas. That is, until I discovered Punjana Irish Breakfast tea! At $3.50 for a box of 80 bags in a local overstock store (Big Lots), although I’d never heard of the brand, I figured it was worth taking a chance. I didn’t expect anything special – I was simply stocking up on UK tea without paying the outrageous price typically charged here in Indiana for UK brands.
From the very first pot I made, this tea has been a revelation! Whether by the cup or the pot, it brews VERY quickly (under two minutes suits my taste), with a rich tan color, with some orange brightness. When drinking, it exhibits no bitterness, even if steeped for more than twice that time – far beyond the point where Twinings and Taylors become bitter and wasted. I really only drink tea with ‘milk,’ (for tea I use almond milk unsweetened, not dairy, as I am vegan), but I tried this with fresh lemon and it was equally delicious. Fabulous taste indeed. I will be sure to stock up on Punjana now, whenever I find it – this is the best tea I have EVER tasted, by quite some margin. Buy some – you won’t regret it.
it’s quite good
No question that the company cares about their products and their reputation. When I wrote them, the friendly response came immediately. Thank you Ross.
P.S. I bought these, same size packaging, for $2 at a local discount store.
Surprising and Amazing!
Its pretty strange to love a cup of black tea with just a lemon, and to brew black tea for under 3 minutes!
The tea has quite high tannin content, so if you let it sit for a while it will get cloudy… probably why most Irish drink tea with milk!
Despite the surprise at the effect of the tannins, its pretty much the only fool proof cup of tea, regardless of the quality of water, you’ll be sure to enjoy!
Pick up a pack.. you won’t regret it!
Great cuppa tea
love this tea!!
I found it here on amazon and will keep on ordering it. Pricey but worth it, smooth, bold favor. Clear or cloudy. Wonderful tea!!
