drank English Breakfast by PG Tips
10 tasting notes

It might not be the world’s fanciest tea, but for a bagged black tea nothing beats it. It really is England’s no.1 tea for a reason. Strong, tasty, full bodied. This is an every day tea that really sums up the British.

I’ve been drinking this for my whole life and no other bagged tea comes close. And a word of warning – the PG tips in Canada isn’t the same blend. PG Tips in the UK is a full bodied black tea blend including Assam tea. In Canada (and some parts of the US) it’s simply a weak, flavourless Ceylon tea. Definitely not the same thing.

Be SURE to brew it with fully rolling boiling water, not any of the “just boiled” water you often get in N. America for English Breakfast. It really is the only way to get to the good flavour and not end up with something weak and flavour-less.
