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.
As an entrepreneur, Arthur Brooks was simply following his passion when be opened his tea shop. When he died at 49, his passion became a way of life. Countless words of joy have transpired among those who sip PG Tips.
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 leaves quicker.
