From PG Tips

The eighth wonder of the world! Pyramid bags give the tea leaves room to breathe so you can get even more out of the great PG tips flavor.

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 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.

Contents: 40 teabags, 4.4 oz

Tea blended and packaged in the UK

OK, so I’m rating this higher than what are obviously better teas, but it’s just cause I feel like this tea really is a good representation of basic English tea. I only steeped one minute at 185 to ward off bitterness since I knew I was starting out with tiny leaf particles and not the best quality tea. BUT, there is something satisfying about having a regular old cup of tea now and then. I had one sip straight out of curiosity, but the rest I drank with soymilk and sugar. It will do on a hurried morning when I have to wake up fast. Luckily I don’t have many of those. ;)

Kind of curious to try Typhoo when I run out of this. Haven’t seen it around here, though, and hate to pay shipping on cheap tea!

I love this too! And Red Rose :) Sometimes it’s nice to have a simple cup of tea!

Something old, comfortable, and familiar to wake up to. Wouldn’t you know it, the one morning I could sleep in I ended up with a wicked case of insomnia…counting on good ol’ PG to fortify me for the day ahead. Happy Thanksgiving: may you run out of fingers and toes to count your blessings on.

This tea is really dark so I decided to smooth it out with some cream! I love how creamy it became! It’s really foggy and chilly today and this tea was so nice and warm! This tea is a lot stronger than what I usually drink but I really like it! ❤❤

Aw being away from home so long has made me miss the rain and fog. Sounds delicious though :)

I love foggy weather! It’s so magical! We don’t get that kind of weather a lot in Nebraska so I was really enjoying it! ♥

Funny story, I drink this tea almost every day and have done so for about 7 years now. It’s odd to review it for a couple reasons: first, it’s not the most glamorous tea to start off with and second, it almost feels like judging an old friend. Nevertheless, I imagine my familiarity with this tea makes it a perfect candidate for my first review.

195 degree water
1 tsp sugar
1 dash of milk
3ish minutes steeping

For all of my time drinking this tea, you’d think I’d treat it a little more nicely than I do. However, one of my favorite things about PG is that it’s hard to over steep. This of course is a virtue of it’s being a bag tea without those fabulous little tea LEAVES to burn. I usually add my tea bag and sugar to the steeping receptacle and then water and let it steep while I’m getting ready to leave for work in the morning. On the weekends, I’ll leave the tea bag in the cup. A note: this tea CAN be oversteeped and it will taste like a mouthful of liquid brass.

I like PG because it has FLAVOR and BODY. I imagine this is because it’s an English Breakfast tea that English people actually drink. The American interpretations of this staple often end up tasting like crappy, tarry unsweetened sweet tea. It’s great with and without milk and is even good cold. You can definitely tell that the blend has a fair amount of assam given the red wine-like flavor and it’s reddish liquor. It’s very smooth and not overly sweet. It leaves a nice tannin-y after flavor, which of course, is not for everyone.

It’s expertly blended. In my times as a tea hawker, I tried to find a loose black tea that could replace my dirty little tea bag secret to no avail. The keemun was too weird, the assam too sweet, the darjeeling delightful, but not the same.

In all, I love PG Tips. There’s a reason why it’s one of the most popular teas in Britain. It’s reasonably priced, easy to make, and more flavorful than most bag teas. It’s obviously not the finest or highest grade tea, but for everyday consumption, I can’t think of anything else I’d rather drink.

Just a quick note on my experience of this tea.

I do enjoy this tea. It is similar to America’s Lipton but stronger in character and flavor. This is definitely a morning cuppa. This tea is malty and assertive; it has a full mouth feel and lingers awhile as an aftertaste. PG Tips can most certainly handle milk and sugar even though I do not use either (may try it someday). This is one tea that I will reuse the teabag knowing that it can stand a second infusion. I feel the next time, the flavor will mellow somewhat but none less enjoyable.

The color of the liquor is a deep amber brown.

If you like your tea strong and want something to wake you up in the morning other than coffee, than PG Tips is the tea for you. I would recommend this tea.

It’s tea. It’s quick, and it’s easy, and it’s brown, hot and wet.

This is my “everyday” tea. I start every morning with a pot of PG Tips.

Added a sprinkle of Scottish Breakfast from English Tea Store to round out the flavor. Strong and delicious.

My Political Science teacher was kind enough to give me a sampler of this fine tea (about five or six bags, I believe). The tea itself was quite good. I brought the water to just under a boil, and poured about 350ml into my glass (which conveniently, was a beaker). I allowed the tea to steep for approximately 45 seconds or a minute. I was comfortable with the look even around 30 seconds, this tea doesn’t take long at all to reach readiness.

The bag’s design is quite interesting, and is part of the reason why steeping takes so little time compared to other teas I’ve experienced. I found this tea to be quite enjoyable (I did add a bit of sugar, but that’s just my standard routine). Very good!

My paternal grandmother is an English lady and she turned me on to this tea. This is my everyday tea and WOW is it ever good. I like my tea strong and this stuff is very strong. With some sugar in the raw and splash of milk…mmmmmmmm
If you want a good British cuppa, this is it.
