PG Tips Loose Tea in an 8.8 Ounce Pacakge
PG Tips Loose tea is tea for the traditionalist.

Just add a teaspoon per person (plus one for the pot), and freshly boiled water. Then let PG Tips infuse for that unmistakable PG tips flavor.

A popular British blend of the finest Assam, Ceylon and Kenyan teas, PG Tips produces a rich and refreshing flavor. PG Tips Tea is England's #1 tea. Made with fresh tea leaves, PG Tips is 100% natural. PG Tips uses only the top two leaves, and a bud, known as the tips, for a great tasting cup of tea.

Black tea.

Brand History:
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.

    Flavorful tea

    PG Tips loose tea is a great way to enjoy a single cup of PG Tips ! I normally make a two cup pot with the standard pyramid tea bag, but sometimes I only want a single cup so the loose tea is the way to go. PG Tips does have a single serving tea bag, but it is not easy to find so the loose tea works great for that. Also I can adjust the strength of the tea according to my mood.

    Love this tea. No bitter after taste even if I don't finish the pot of tea for a few hours. Easy to clean the pot after steeping

    My favorite

    One of the best teas available in US, it's really rich but not bitter. Unfortunately, similarly to Taylors Of Harrogate Yorkshire Tea, it should be consumed immediately due to the coalescence of tea particles that makes the tea cloudy when cooled down.

    Excellent very hardy black breakfast tea

    Posted by avid Alaskan te on Mar 1st 2011

    This tea is very popular in England I have learned. It is inexpensive compared to other strong black teas and wonderful. It compares to some of the expensive ones. I have taken to mixing it a little with another milder tea whose taste I like a lot. This is a very strong tea not for the tea drinker who doesn't like very strong tea. The only thing I would like is it were listed as completely organic
