A well known English tea, but relatively new to me is PG Tips.
This black tea quickly became a must have in my tea stash.
I had my first taste of PG Tips while sipping tea from a darling tea pot in a local tea room. I had ordered a pot of black tea….my usual when I am not feeling decisive or spontaneous.
The tea that was served was a perfect. I had to know what brand of tea it was.
A few minutes of chatting with the owner of the shop, I learned she hailed from England and served the English brand PG Tips as her "house blend". She did not have any boxes to sell, but she assured me that I could find it in a larger grocery store in our area.
Taking tea at home is not always an over the top experience like it is in a tea room. But with PG Tips it can be close!
The shape of the tea bag could be what sets PG Tips apart from other teas. The pyramid shape is said to allow the tea to expand and infuse more effectively than a round tea bag.
I am no expert on tea bag shape but I do know that this small pyramid shaped tea bag carries a big punch!
PG Tips brews into a delicious and bracing cup of tea with a shorter steep time than other black tea brands that I use. The end color is a beautiful amber and tastes just as tea is meant to- with that slightly bitter tea bite at the end.
I look forward to tasting all the many flavors of tea by PG Tips. That's right, there is a world even beyond black tea, & I mean to sip and savor many!
I will let you know what I discover!
A little Monday humor for you.
Have you tried PG Tips?
