60 Tasting Notes
PG Tips. Again. Seriously. We buy it in boxes that are bigger than my head. Where does it all go? Where has the last year gone? In between the 65+ hour workweeks, the trip across country for my grandfather’s funeral, the new job, the trip across country for my brother’s wedding, there is a steady rhythm of caffeine jolts that keeps everything moving.
That’s PG Tips: not fancy, not delicate, but reliable: quick to steep, able to stand up to an omelet (even an omelet covered in tomatillo salsa) consistently delivering needed energy.
Let’s hear it for the “best supporting actress”, the janitor, the viola player, and PG Tips: all those who make life better from the background.
I think this is the Lipton of England. On the one hand, its incredibly easy to oversteep and is somewhat bitter. A three minute steep is definitely too long unless you are adding cream and sugar. On the other hand, it delivers the goods: specifically, caffeine. It also has a robust, Assam like flavor that stands up well to heavy breakfast food.
