drank PG Tips Extra Strong by PG Tips
2476 tasting notes

I am not grousing about today’s chilly rain. It’s a much-needed drought breaker. However, that plus the confounded pre-daylight savings darkness made it stinkin’ hard to hit the deck this morning. Break out the hard core stuff.

And indeed, this one is not for the faint of heart. A review by another self-proclaimed barbarian compared the extra-strong PG Tips blend to oak wood. I might concur with that, if you left the water in the tree stump overnight with some acorns tossed in.

More analytically, PG Tips self-reports that it uses a blend of Ceylon, Assam, and Kenyan teas in its normal formula. I might guess that this rendition is far heavier on the dark Kenyan leaves. Unless you’re really living on the edge, use milk.

I had the same feeling when I took the dogs out this morning, and it was both dark and rainy. And yet now it’s sunny and hot! Harumph.

I am in that small percentage of malcontents who like our morning in the mornings when we can enjoy it … not at night when we are tired. :)
