The PG Tips Story
1869 - The first brew
Arthur Brooke opens his first shop in Manchester and its success lays in his sale of reliable tea blends. His big break comes in the late 1870s when a grocer asks for a bulk order of tea at wholesale prices.
1930s - The pre-digestive era
Arthur Brooke launches in the UK tea market under the name of 'Pre-Gest-Tea'. Grocers abbreviate it to PG, and the company adds 'tips' to highlight the fact that PG uses the top two leaves and a bud to make its tea.
1960 - It's in the bag
The makers of PG Tips introduce the tea bag to a stunned nation. They catch on quickly and soon, tea bags out-sell loose-leaf tea.
1996 - The 8th wonder of the world
The makers of PG Tips launch the revolutionary PG Tips pyramid bags. With more room inside, it acts like a miniature teapot, giving the leaves more room to move.
2008 - Green leaves
PG Tips joins forces with the Rainforest Alliance to ensure PG Tips tea suppliers meet their high sustainability standards.

Unilever took over and destroyed the US version of "England's Number 1 tea". No one in England would drink the lousy PG Tips version they are trying to sell to Americans!!!! Because they decided to treat American consumers like idiots, I am abandoning PG Tips for life.
After 2 bad batches of 240-bags, I finally took a closer look at the box. New Jersey is on the side of the current boxes now found in grocery stores, and the last 2 orders I placed on Amazon. Beware! Lousy tea in the boxes with blue background! Looks like Unilever, PG Tips parent company, is now pulling the same sell-the-lousy-tea-dust-to-the-Americans stunt that they do with Liption and Red Rose (which they also own). Lipton packed in England tastes great, nothing like the stuff they sell here. Apparently, they are now doing the same thing with PG Tips.
I, personally, am so disgusted-- actually bordering on angry-- that Unilever thinks US tea drinkers are stupid enough to buy low grade tea fannings (garbage to the whole of Europe and the Near East) just because they put it in a pyramid bag, that I will NEVER buy another box. PG tips now has a few variations: "The Fresh One", "The Strong One", and, effectively, "The Fake One for Americans".Read more ›
I am British and have been in the US for quite a while now so I know my tea and have been drinking PG tips for over 25 years. I have never had a problem with it until this last shipment.
In one of the boxes, every 1 in 4 bags had a bad taste, or basically no taste. It was like you were brewing cardboard. But then I got on to the 2nd box, and basically they are all like that. I am not sure what is going on here. I have read through some of the negative reviews and it seems we are having the same problem.
So I e-mailed the vendor from whom I bought the tea and they said they get it in fresh every week from the wholesaler and that I should contact PG Tips myself if I am not happy and ask whether they have changed the blend.
I am pretty sure PG Tips has not changed the blend so I am now hesitant to order any PG Tips that any company is bringing in to the US.
Or may be I just got a bad batch but I will stay away from it for a while and keep monitoring the feedback here.
PG Tips Tea and PG Tips Special Blend Tea is our home's standard tea. There are a few specialty retailers in the USA that now offer the PG Tips Special Blend Tea and hopefully Amazon will do so soon.
In the 1930s (the pre-digestive era in history) this tea was introduced by the name "Pre-Gest-Tee" suggesting the tea could be consumed before food was eaten, but it was the grocers who gave it the abbreviation of "PG" - and the company added "tips" (since the company uses only the best part of the tea plant, the two top leaves and bud of the tea plant to make the tea).
Many black teas sold in the USA are graded the basic medium grade Orange Pekoe (generally the tea leaves below the top two and bud), which is one of the reasons PG Tips gets higher reviews than most other teas. PG Tips also uses their pyramid tea bag that allows ample room for the tea to expand as it is infused. Additionally, in my opinion, PG Tips blends only two blends, rather than blending a wide assortment, thus becoming really good at what they do.
Here at Amazon PG Tips is priced at just over a nickel a tea bag (a good value for an imported product) when you order the 240 count boxes in a set of two, and even less expensive in the higher volumes. PG Tips makes wonderful ice tea too, and that's good news since Americans drink about 80% of their tea as iced tea and only 20% as hot tea.Read more ›
