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.
I love this tea. It is rich and bold with a great flavor. If you oversteep the tea (five minutes or until the water begins to cool) it can be so strong that it is hard to drink on an empty stomach. If you add milk or soy milk, stomach discomfort may be alleviated. I enjoy this tea with breakfast or a snack. It is a perfect black tea. If you enjoy a lighter tea, you can steep it for less time. This is also excellent for iced tea. Make a strong batch with two or three bags in a heat-proof container. Steep, remove bags, let it cool. Pour the strong tea into an iced tea pitcher or thermos, add additional water and ice cubes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
To enjoy PG Tips at its best... use one bag per cup, add freshly boiled water and allow to infuse. If you are using a teapot, add one extra bag for the pot! Brew for one to three minutes to your desired taste. Enjoy PG Tips plain or add sugar, honey, milk, or lemon, as you wish. To make a good pot of tea, always warm your teapot before use. Store in a cool, dry place.
