A few years ago I was wandering about my grocery’s store international aisle, they had all sorts of cool stuff, exotic beans and pickles, wine gums, oats from ireland, and tea. They had about 3 different kinds of “exotic” teas from the UK and Ireland. I found them interesting because up to this point I had only been drinking Lipton and other horrible US market teas that we get. The box proudly read “#1 Tea in the UK.” so I thought “Why not? It’s on sale.”
So began the love affair that I have with this tea today. PG Tips has seen me through many a study session, many a cold morning, many a cold afternoon and night, and many through a good morning cuppa. It’s a basic black tea, that’s that but it’s comforting. I just poil my water until the kettle is whistling, throw in a teabag into my mug, pour some water over it and then let it sit for about 5 minutes and then I add some milk. Simply perfect but makes my day so much better.
Overall, there are better teas out there (Yorkshire, Barry’s ,etc.) but PG Tips remains a favorite to me.
