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.

Amazon last year had an incredible sale where i got about 2600 bags of this tea for about $8 total no tax free shipping. This tea is much better than lipton. This tea is also stronger than lipton. I make a lot of iced tea at work and if you throw in about 6 bags of this into making 3 quarts of tea you get some pretty slurry tea. you’ll get some serious work done.

Love this one in the morning, sometimes with a little sugar. But it doesn’t need it, I just do to wake me up some. :-)
It has a nice clean taste, even after steeping until it’s dark, I can’t taste much tannins. A good staple to have on hand, good for bagged tea and you can usually find it at a good price.

Are you paying attention, Lipton? Excellent with lots of milk and raw sugar.

This is divine. Strong flavor that holds its own with milk. It is extremely comforting and satisfying.

Pretty solid simple supermarket tea, nice bold flavor with a little metallic or green something taste over the top, compared to similar tea (e.g. Barry’s Gold Blend, Red Rose). Stands up well to milk and sugar, and makes a fine breakfast.

Saw this in the store the other day and decided to see what the British are drinking. It’s not bad. I was told this was a tea made for milk and sugar so I added sugar and a splash of almond milk. The tea itself is fairly good for a teabag. It’s got a malty character and a bit of a fruity character. Maybe not as high a grade as what I’m used to but a higher grade than Lipton.

Brewed two teabags in 16oz of boiling water for 3 minutes.

When I worked at a place where brewing good tea was next to impossible I drank this. I agree it’s better than Lipton, but their packaging drives me nuts.

I like it looseleaf best, but extremely hard to find anything but bags in SW Missouri.

In between all the fancy and exquisite teas, there has to be a place for a good, reliable, no-brainer tea. I discovered this on a recent trip to Scotland and can’t go back to any other basic black tea. I use one pyramid bag to 16 oz. boiling water and let it steep for at least four minutes before I pour my first cup. Milk and sugar or sweetener enhances the flavor.

Este té me encanta, solo o con leche y normalmente lo preparo con agua de canela.
Me gusta más que el famoso Twinings.

I thought a new personal review of this tea was needed since PG Tips sort of did a ‘new Coke’ last year. Early in 2015 PG Tips reduced the size of their tea bags from 3.1g to 2.9g. To compensate for this minor reduction and still achieve the same great taste the blend was slightly changed. I must say they did a good job of hiding the change. The tea still brews up into that nice malty/cocoa flavour. The only difference I taste is a slight bitterness if it is over steeped. Otherwise this is the same great cuppa it always has been.
A classic Assam, Ceylon, and Kenyan English tea.

Flavors: Cocoa, Malt, Smooth
