drank Pyramid Teabags by PG Tips
304 tasting notes

My cupboard says I have drank this tea 25 times, let’s do some math 25 X16=400 cups of PG Tips!
I feel I have crossed over to the expert level on this brew. Brisk, drinkable and my morning go to tea. Don’t let those pyramid bags fool you, the tea will expand to fill up the pyramid. This tea requires a quick 2 minute steeping time. Get your cup ready…raw sugar, a splash of milk, twirl in cup, pour in the tea and watch the caramel color show…perfection in a cup.
When I first started drinking tea, I wanted a good morning cup of tea with consistency. A tea that was coffee like and tea like and would take well to milk. After spending hundreds of dollars on fancier blends, I found this unassuming tea and my morning routine became consistent with a perfect cup of tea each and every morning.
Someone once described this tea as a “ratty” tea.
I have a few ratty teas in my cupboard, they have been there for a while, they are ok, just not what I want to drink. PG Tips is far from being ratty, it is THE one tea I would not be without in my tea cupboard.
What is your one morning tea you will not let yourself run out of in your cupboard?

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
