In 1896, from a tea warehouse near Belfast docks, Thompson’s Tea founder Robert S Thompson, trained in the art of tea tasting and soon became known for his uncompromising devotion to quality.

Since then, four generations of Thompsons’ have been blending and packing its award-winning range in Belfast for over 120 years.

They continue to share this passion for quality and take great pride in the fact that over 1 million cups of Thompson’s Punjana are enjoyed every single day, in Northern Ireland alone.

To this day, every blend it ever produces is first tasted and then approved by a member of the Thompson family.
