Product Description

Product Description

Founded in 1869 by Arthur Brook, 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 soon abbreviated by grocers and van salesmen as PG. The company adopted the official name and added 'tips' to highlight that PG takes only the top two leaves and a bud to make its tea. PG Tips is a popular British blend of the finest Assam, Ceylon and Kenyan teas which produces a rich and refreshing flavor. The definitive traditional English tea. The PG Tips pyramid tea bag gives the tea leaves more room to move around than a flat conventional tea bag. So the tea bag works like a miniature tea pot. This allows for all the freshness to be released for the best tasting cup of PG.

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.

It used to be that a box of PG was great and the same from the first tea bag to the last, but not anymore. About half the tea bags in the last several boxes I purchased over the last year have had the same problem of not tasting the same, tasting bland or weak. on one occasion the entire box tasted as bland as Lipton, gone was the robust flavor I loved so much. I'm switching to Ty*Phoo as they are still consistent with a strong flavorful tea. While not the same "mix" of teas, consistent flavor and strength. Sorry PG...you're just not the same tea you used to be.

The folks in the United Kingdom drink more PG Tips tea than any other brand, and perhaps after you try it; it will be your #1 choice, too! (By the way, the folks in Ireland drink more tea per person than in any other country.)

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.

I have been drinking PG Tips for over thirty years and was delighted when Amazon started carrying it. Both the price point and quantity are much better than the other alternatives of acquiring this brand either locally or online.

I had my first cup of PG Tips in Wales more than 20 years ago. It was sublime. So great that in the days before internet ordering, I used to carry huge boxes back from Europe every time I went, and rationed it at 2 bags per family member per day to make it last longer. It was my go to breakfast drink, a pot of tea every morning for > 20 years.

Now, 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 (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.

For anyone who wants the good stuff, order it from a seller who will ship it to you FROM ENGLAND, and make sure it is packed for consumption by Brits. If "New Jersey" on the side of the box, in my experience, the tea bags do little more than color the water. Hot swamp juice. What is it good for? Soaking your feet?

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".

So I have been buying PG Tips on Amazon via subscribe and save for many years now. This exact same configuration (2 x 240). Since the subscribe and save price went up quite a bit I decided to purchase this item instead. I could not believe the price, specially since it comes directly from the UK.
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.
