PG Tips, United Kingdom
England's Number 1 Tea
In 1869, tea dealer, Arthur Brooke, opened his first shop in Manchester, England, where he sold tea, coffee and sugar. Brooke's early slogan was good tea unites good company, exhilarates the spirits, opens the heart, banishes restraint from conversation and promote happiest purposes of social intercourse.
Arthur Brooke had so intertwined tea and British life that his company continued to prosper even after his death in 1918.
In 1930, PG Tips, sold only as loose tea, is one of the United Kingdom's top brands. The tea is still made in Manchester, England. Britons drink as astonishingly 150 million cups a tea daily. Thirty-five million of these cups are PG Tips tea, which Britons love, is at the center of the United Kingdom. After exchanging pleasantries upon a visit to the friend, the dialogue continues with, would you like a cup of tea.
In 1996, PG Tips introduced The Pyramid. Pyramid shaped tea bags were the result of 4 years of research and heralded the most original invention since the square tea bag. The new 3D shape provided as much as 50% more room for tea leaves to flow and infuse, thus delivering double the flavor.
In 2003, PG Tips launched Freeflow pyramid bags. The bags were developed using unique 'webbed' fibers that allow the water to reach the leaves faster. The material used for the new Freeflow bags is 50% more permeable than the older-style pyramid bags - making for a quicker brew.
In 2004, PG Tips decaf was launched. In Scotland, a blend of PG called Scottish Blend was designed for the soft waters of Scotland.
In 2005, PG Tips celebrated its 75th anniversary.

PG Tips tea comes in Pyramid Tea Bags
The pyramid tea bags are officially known as Freeflow pyramid tea bags. In 1996, PG Tips switched to the pyramid tea bag. Pyramid tea bags act as small teapots and allow the tea leaves to move more freely, producing a better tasting tea. Pyramid tea bags allow 50% more room for the tea leaves to move. More room for the tea leaves results in a better infusion and a superior cup of tea.
Unilever (corporate owners of PG Tips) are credited with inventing the pyramid tea bag. In 1996, Unilever first introduced the pyramid tea bag with PG Tips tea. It took over 4 years to invent the pyramid tea bag. The pyramid bags are made of webbed fibers, which means the water can reach the tea leavesquicker.

I thought I was getting the original blend of PG Tips, but I got the new blend... I am enjoying it, but just wasn't what I expected
Strong, robust, delicious. It's the only tea we drink (except for the occasional Tension Tamer when we can't sleep).
It is called the original for a reason. Noone wants to go without their tips. No mistaking the pyramid shaped bag and full flavor
This is the best tea out there!
Good as always.
Can't beat the price for what you get!
If you like a really dark, strong cup of tea (Builder's Tea, as they call it in the UK), PG Tips is your tea. Or if you like tea Indian style brewed with 1/3 milk and plenty of sugar, PG Tips can stand up to all that and still give a robust tea flavor. PS: Don't squeeze the bag, unless you have a strong constitution and appetite for caffeine.
I shared some of the tea bags with a little lady from who came to the States from England 50 years ago. She says its wonderful!
This tea is equivalent (in flavor) to Barry's Gold. I just wish PG Tips sold a Darjeeling tea.
Very smooth & slightly stronger flavor than some I've had. But very enjoyable & I certainly like to drink it in the morning or afternoons but shy away at nights (need to sleep!)
PG Tips, I have about a dozen tea's in my cupboard, and if I can't make up my mind, this tea or BewleysSpecial Reserve get the nod with PG Tips probably winning 6-7 out of ten times. I could literally rotate them forever. PG Tips I would say is a little smoother and Bewleys a little brawnier. The only other Tea I have to have is Barry's Classic for that first cup in the morning. If someone stuck m
Be sure to shake the pyramids before placing in the pot. Let brew for 5 minutes. Good with milk and sugar to taste.
