drank PG Tips Loose Leaf by PG Tips
1628 tasting notes

You have heard everything I have to say about my beloved PG Tips looseleaf (dark, strong, punchy) so I wandered onto their website to see if I could find a postworthy tidbit. Here’s one:

New varieties. A STRONG blend of PG Tips, as if the original won’t boot you out the door in the morning. Anybody seen these in your locality in the US? (We’re lucky to have the conventional type available.)

I will keep an eye out for it, and will ask Gav to look in Ireland. He just sent some Marks and Spencer breakfast tea and I know it comes in grades like that. I think I have the strong, but it really doesn’t taste that strong to me, maybe it does just refer to the caffeine.

Can’t say that I have seen them in the groceries I frequent, but I’ll check my local British Import shop, British Isles in Houston.

Might check with Brits store in Lawrence

Looking at the Brits website, it doesn’t look like they carry the Strong One. Though since it is new, they might have it in a few months…

Oh, and if you ever want anything from the Brits store, I’d be happy for an excuse to go over to Lawrence and send you something from my trip. :)

I have a friend who tells me how cool Brits is. Our recreational travels generally point us south instead of north, but I’m thinking I may need to re-think that ;)

Nicole

If you get up this way, definitely let me know! :)

Just got a message from Gav asking if we want any tea from Ireland. I asked him to keep an eye out for this one at the grocery. If he finds it, he will bring it to me the third week of October.

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
