England's #1 Tea-Est. Since 1930
A popular British blend of the finest Assam, Ceylon, and Kenyan teas which produces a rich and refreshing flavour. The definitive English tea.
How PG Tips Began...
Arthur Brooke founded the company Brooke, Bond & Co in 1869 and in the same year opened his first shop in Manchester, UK. There was never a Mr. Bond-he just felt that the name sounded right!
Arthur Brooke developed his own quality blends, mixing together various estate teas. This ensured a more consistent quality because, as with any crop, the characteristics of a consignment can vary according to climate, time of year, and general growing conditions.
In 1930 PG Tips was launched in the UK as a loose leaf tea in soft packs. It was originally called 'Pre-Gest-Tee' but was soon abbreviated by grocers and van salesman to PG. The company adopted this as the official name and added 'tips' to highlight that PG takes only the top two leaves and a bud to makes its tea.
The PG Tips pyramid® tea bag gives the tea leaves 50% more room to move around than a flat conventional tea bag. So the tea bags works like a miniature tea pot. This allows for all the freshness to be released for the best tasting cup of PG.
