Last night, I opened up a new box of rectangular PG Tips bags (which is the only kind I can get here in the Greater Philly area) and noticed that the bags seem to be smaller than previously. The tea is also a bit weaker and flatter, so I’m brewing it longer. Perhaps I just got a bad box. Usually, this is a predictably brilliant everyday tea.
I think Jillian mentioned that Lipton took over the distribution rights for PG Tips in America, but I think both companies are owned by Unilever, which owns about one-fifth of all goods in the world. I really hope this isn’t a preview of things to come. Right now, I’m looking forward to having a Red Rose rather than another cup of PG Tips from this box.
