drank Pyramid Teabags by PG Tips
67 tasting notes

PG Tips in pyramid bags taste better than PG Tips in regular bags. I have no idea why. The pyramid bags are also strong enough to make two cups of tea. I like to take milk and sugar in mine, but others like to put in lemon juice. This is a good tea to wake you up. I’m convinced that PG Tips has more caffeine in it than other brands, but I can’t prove this. Sadly, pyramid bags are not available in my part of America. They are one of the teas that I miss about my years in the UK. Went really well with a bakewell tart, too – which you also can’t get in America.

Supposedly the pyramid bags allow a better flow of water and more space for the leaves than the traditional type bags, giving a more complete-ish (this is not really the word I’m looking for but I give up) sort of flavour. Maybe that’s what you can detect?

There’s a couple of different companies I’ve seen using the pyramid bags – Tea Forte is the one that springs to mind most readily – and the presentation is really, really cool looking.

Angrboda: I know PG Tips says the pyramid shape helps the tea leaf bits expand better, but I’m never sure if they were just making up clever sounding BS. But maybe there is something to it.

I agree with you, Suzi — the shape is really cool! Lipton is doing a pyramid shape herb & green or white tea line, but the ones I’ve tried have been pretty bad.

I’d love it if I could find some PG Tips anywhere! I want to taste what the British drink on a daily basis.

Red Rose is a fairly close approximation to PG tips I’ve found, although since the US branch has been bought up by Lipton recently I have no idea if they’ve changed suppliers or quality.

I had a cuppa Red Rose Mountain Blend this morning and agree that it’s the closest to PG Tips. I haven’t noticed a change in taste in the last couple of years.

You can order it from Amazon.com, and they are quite affordable. 40 count is $3.99 and a pack of 6 is $22.06, etc. If you want to buy in large amounts, $25+ order is eligible for free shipping. That’s how I get mine. Hope that helps!

Cheers, Gander!

Bio

Lived in Pennsylvania until I was 29, ran away to live in the woods in England for five and a half years, then returned to America. Used to have a late lamented webpage about Peter Gabriel, guinea pigs and model horses called “In rraven’s Eyes”. Here’s a quick tip—remember to not leave your computer with your ex when you leave for another country. Would like to be a white horse when I grow up. But, until then, I am a freelance writer.
