Now, this must be nectar of the gods with the way Mrs Brown quaffs the stuff, and being a tea fiend and seeing some in Tesco's I thought I'd give it a try.
Now I know it's probably never been near Ireland and is nothing like the real deal but it's not a bad brew for all that.
The question is however, what's Irish tea like?

My Mrs has Irish family. Whenever we go over to visit the tea pot is always on. To be honest I thought it was just like the tea I have at home ☕

now it's Thompsons Irish we are drinking so it is, how does it compare to the Punjana?
I've have no idea, I was a Yorkshire Tea Drinker for donkeys, when a friend got hold of some Punjana from a rep (said friend worked in Tescos) and I tried it and that was it! (10 years ago).

The two most popular teas in Ireland would be Lyons and Barrys. Lyons is produced in Dublin and Barrys in Cork . A bit like Guinness is Dublin based and Murphys is produced in Cork.
