This tea is popular in England because it’s cheap. Among the standard builders’ teas (like Tetley, Typhoo) PG is normally the cheapest. I’m surprised some of the reviews here praise this basic tea. Being immune to the charms of coffee, I have about 2 thousand cups of these brands a year (milk no sugar). But I’ve given them up in search of a finer tea (which brought me to this site). I find Twinings Original English Breakfast, and Yorkshire Gold, a good step up. Both are more aromatic and without the bitter aftertaste.
