Product Description

Size: 480 Tea Bags

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.

Size Name: 480 Tea Bags
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.

Size Name: 480 Tea Bags Verified Purchase
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.

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.

PG tips is #1 for a reason. Always consistent, superior water flow through bags, and great black or with milk and sugar. Also makes a fantastic iced tea on hot summer days.

Amazon is a great source of British tea, and it tastes just like a cuppa made at home.

With this, a kettle and some milk you'll never know you're in the USA.

Size Name: 480 Tea Bags
PG tips gets a five from me and So does Yorkshire Gold (made famous on the HOMELAND TV SERIES probably prodct placement). I also vote for amazon getting the PG Special Blend (First introduced for PG's 75th Annivesary) PG in terms of tea is a new company that is blending fine teas to a current audience.
Pg tips is mild yet Malty tea and I use boiling water and steep only 3 minutes to get a great cup of tea.Steeping longer brings out the bitterness.Some people love leaving the tea bag in but I think you loose the subtle flavors that way and it does get bitter.Yorkshire gold is brewed the same way.If you have an old Krups Tea Time brewer you get the very best taste possible using loose or bag tea some people swear by loose tea as the tea is a courser cut.One other secret that makes a difference is use filtered water .I use an inexpensive PUR filter that attaches to my faucet saving a lot of money in purchasing bottled water and works fine for tea.
It doesnt strip out the minerals leaving the water chlorine free but alkaline. You dont want a neutral water as in a PH7 as it tastes acid to your tongue even though it is not.Try some distilled water you will immediately see what I mean.

PG TIPS is close to many cheaper brands but worth the extra money ( we are talking pennies per bag) over Grandmas favorite Red Rose Tea.PG is a little cheaper where I shop then Yorkshire Gold. Even after three minutes Yorkshire Gold gets a touch more Bitter. Bitter is a preference just like in beer. If you like bitter beer you will like Yorkshire Gold Better.

Let me give you a comparision to coffee which I also love. If you like a dark roast like Starbucks the Yorkshire Gold will probably be a better choice.
