What Makes Us Special ?

- We care for our lovely farmers
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 Brits go bonkers over PG Tips--known internationally for their revitalizing, tasty and timeless black teas, PG Tips is loved the world over and nowhere more than in Britain where 35 million cups of PG Tips are consumed each day.
Why is PG Tips England’s #1 tea? It’s the taste, of course. PG Tips uses only the highest quality and most flavorful top two leaves and bud off the tea plant. PG Tips flavorful black tea is harvested from the finest tips of tea plants grown in Ceylon and Kenya, providing you a quality tea with exceptional taste. All you need to do is pop the kettle on and enjoy the outstanding taste of PG Tips black tea.
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.

I feel these are knock off PG tIps from this seller, GOOD LIVING USA. I ordered original PG Tips from the picture with the monkey at the top of the box and received an entirely different box of tea. I already have knockoff tasteless PG Tips ordered before I read other reviews, I could not understand why they were tasteless. After reading a very educational review about the authentic product with the monkey at the top then I carefully picked out the original tips and ordered tips with the monkey at the top, original product , and received tips without the monkey at the top. I don't want to even open them to test if they are tasteless..I am trying to return them, contacted seller. Will give update on their response ...
SECOND ORDER: I received 480 bags/2 boxes from the seller in Wales and the boxes are white and there is no Unilever symbol and were not distributed from NJ and so they are true PG Tips. I'm very pleased with my latest order from Wales that only took about ten days to arrive and I'm now well-stocked on tea for the winter months. Sometimes I add a flavored tea bag to my ' Pyramid' bag to make the tea richer and more interesting.
Very disappointing as I was excited to have 6 months supply at a very reasonable cost.
That said I do recommend this brand of tea, just not from here, or maybe another seller, but i’m not gambling it.
I make a gallon at a time. With Li_pton I used 15 tea bags steeped for 5-6 minutes to get the flavor I wanted. With PG Tips it only requires 12 tea bags for 4 minutes and the flavor is richer and stronger. Since the tea bags come in bulk I no longer have to unwrap each tea bag envelop. I first tried a small package of PG Tips from the grocery store to taste test the product before ordering 240 count. Once I was satisfied that it was good, I ordered this Amazon offering.
