From PG Tips

PG Tips has been the best known and most popular brand of tea in the UK for over 75 years. Stronger than most Indian and African teas, PG Tips has a similar taste to our English Breakfast Tea.

Always innovating and improving its products, PG Tips features pyramid-shaped tea bags, which allow more room for tea to infuse and produce a better flavor. The Freeflow material used in PG Tips tea bags is made of webbed fibers, which allow water to pass through the filter, reaching the tea quickly and decreasing the brewing time. The Freeflow Pyramid bags result in fast brewing and a superior taste.

much much better than Lipton, quite enjoyable with milk. Perfectly fine but not extraordinary.

Maybe slightly better than the teas you get served on an airplane, PG Tips offers the standard CTC tea. Kinda hard to mess up.

Best with milk and sugar.

So far, my second favorite tea; Barry’s being my first in line.
Strong tea. Boil or microwave. I prefer it with half and half or cream, and various non-sugar sweeteners.

All I can say about this tea is that it is a strong black tea. Nothing more, nothing less. Now that is plenty fine for me.

Very “Assamic” taste, this amber tea is strong in both color and flavor. However, it is a good tea for breakfast (you can mix it with milk) or after a heavy lunch.

I just tried this plain for the first time and it was pretty good. It’s flavorful but not too strong.

Probably the best bagged tea I’ve had, and the price is right. It is pretty strong. I tend to give it a short steeping time of about 30 seconds, add a little sugar or honey, and it is consistently good that way.

This is my second go-to bleary-eyed morning tea, it definitely provides the spark to bring me back from the land of sleep dead. It’s good with a bit of milk and sugar added, and as the flavor is not quite as good as my number one breakfast tea (Taylors of Harrogate Scottish Breakfast), I often steep it with some fresh minced ginger. (Plus ginger = mega health benefits)

This is what my parents have in their home as their everyday tea. It’s the only one they drink. It is tolerable, I suppose, but since PG Tips is owned by Unilever and Unilever tests on animals, it gets a big, fat ZERO in my book. Besides, there are so many other great breakfast teas that will brew strongly, like Twinings Irish Breakfast or Ty-Phoo tea.

EDIT: Okay, maybe it gets a rating of 1, since that’s as low as Steepster will go.
