Saw this in the store the other day and decided to see what the British are drinking. It’s not bad. I was told this was a tea made for milk and sugar so I added sugar and a splash of almond milk. The tea itself is fairly good for a teabag. It’s got a malty character and a bit of a fruity character. Maybe not as high a grade as what I’m used to but a higher grade than Lipton.

Brewed two teabags in 16oz of boiling water for 3 minutes.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 4 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
Gooseberry Spoon

When I worked at a place where brewing good tea was next to impossible I drank this. I agree it’s better than Lipton, but their packaging drives me nuts.

I like it looseleaf best, but extremely hard to find anything but bags in SW Missouri.

In between all the fancy and exquisite teas, there has to be a place for a good, reliable, no-brainer tea. I discovered this on a recent trip to Scotland and can’t go back to any other basic black tea. I use one pyramid bag to 16 oz. boiling water and let it steep for at least four minutes before I pour my first cup. Milk and sugar or sweetener enhances the flavor.

Este té me encanta, solo o con leche y normalmente lo preparo con agua de canela.
Me gusta más que el famoso Twinings.

I thought a new personal review of this tea was needed since PG Tips sort of did a ‘new Coke’ last year. Early in 2015 PG Tips reduced the size of their tea bags from 3.1g to 2.9g. To compensate for this minor reduction and still achieve the same great taste the blend was slightly changed. I must say they did a good job of hiding the change. The tea still brews up into that nice malty/cocoa flavour. The only difference I taste is a slight bitterness if it is over steeped. Otherwise this is the same great cuppa it always has been.
A classic Assam, Ceylon, and Kenyan English tea.

Flavors: Cocoa, Malt, Smooth

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec 3 g 7 OZ / 207 ML

Love this! Replaced my morning coffee. I add milk to this tea and it keeps me wide awake.

Best. Builder’s tea. Ever. Seriously, this with a splash of skim milk and I feel ready to take on the day . Ready for anything, really. It’s hearty, earthy, strong, sturdy as a rock. It’s the regular drip coffee of the tea world. I had two cuppas this morning. (I need it— we’re short-staffed this week and I am in no mood for peoples’ whining and complaining.)

Onward!

Flavors: Earth, Grass

I’ve been meaning to try this one for a while now. I have seen enough BBC television show sets and read enough modern British lit to know that this is the working Englishman’s go-to tea. Also, my boyfriend works with a Scot, an Irishman, and several English people and they have all introduced him to it. “It’s the OG tea,” he told me. “You’ll like it.”

I brewed it up this morning in my purple butterfly fine china teacup with a dash of skim milk. I like the uniqueness of the sachets— it’s a pyramid shape made of meshlike paper— ideal for allowing the water to hit the leaves completely.

The tea liquor was a reddish-brown color, which looked delicious mingled with the opaqueness of the milk. It almost looked pink!

It held its own against the milk very well, flavor-wise. It tasted… strong. Like, it tasted like it could bench 450 lbs. Smooth, not astringent, lots of room to add whatever you want to it— milk, sugar, honey, lemon, etc.

Found my new go-to for Builder’s Tea.

Oh yeah, everyone needs a non-fussy strong tea in their life, that’s for sure.

Plus we found it in the English Food section of the store, so I felt all worldly and stuff buying it. :D

This is my usual Go To Tea for when I do not want any added flavors. I enjoy the richness! I drink tea usually iced but enjoy this warm with milk & honey also.

This is my daily morning cuppa. A strong, basic British tea that’s good with milk, which can be astonishingly hard to find in America at most supermarkets.
It’s not a fancy tea, but in my opinion it’s superior to most readily available teas in the USA. And it’s cheap enough that I don’t have to even think twice about having a cup a few times a day (I’m rarely drink coffee, so this is my version of it).
I buy it on Amazon where you can get two BIG boxes with free Prime shipping. Lasts our household about 6 months, and ends up being cheaper than buying inferior tea at the supermarket!

Great tea for the morning, strong and tasty. It wakes me up like coffee. I slightly slightly prefer the Yorkshire Tea but this one is pretty close.

Just a big travel press mug of this to help kick in my muscle relaxant and try to banish the spasmy, rigid back. Nothing fancy.

40 degree temperature drop overnight plus the first day back at work after a lovely week-and-change off…need the heavy stuff today.

As preferences and tolerances change, I don’t consider this to be the strongest tea in my cupboard these days—there are others with more boot and more bite. But it’s sturdy and black; takes milk well and warms your reluctant bones. Who could ask for more.

This is actually my pick two days ago. Normally, it’s a go-to tea when I have a migraine that digs in and doesn’t want to die, for the caffeine and because it’s so consistent. I don’t like to waste better blacks when I don’t have a clear enough state of mind in order to actually enjoy and appreciate them. The beastie marauding in my skull was scoffing at any meds, so I grabbed PG Tips for good, strong comfort to get me through the school day.

Tuesday’s mug, though, was not delightful. It seemed to have an odd undercurrent of taste that was off-putting. I know it wasn’t some kind of carryover from my mug, because I just royally cleaned it to sparkling, and straight water had no carryover taste. After a few swallows, I pitched it.

This morning I’m starting to think the tea was fine, and it was me. I had an odd smell plaguing me yesterday all day, which I finally placed last night…eau de dead bird. I am starting to suspect I’ve got an infection brewing in my sinus, and not a migraine. Time will tell. In the meantime, I’m sticking with non-malty blacks, because they taste truer than PG Tips is.

This is just a standard, everyday kind of tea. It’s the second-favorite of the bagged imports I’ve bought. It’s good, strong, and consistent.

Some nights a strong brew of PG Tips with too much sugar and more milk than normal is just the way through. Clearly, this is one of those nights.
