About PG Tips

PG Tips is a brand of tea in the UK, owned by Unilever, which also owns many other brands of tea, including Lipton. PG Tips came into being in 1930; the brand was invented somewhat accidentally; Arthur Brooke, who founded the Brooke Bond brand, launched a new blend under the name "Pre-Gest-Tea", referencing the idea that tea could aid digestion. Grocers selling this blend began abbreviating it to PG. The term "tips" was then added to emphasize that only top two leaves and a bud of the tea plant were used.

PG Tips is popular in the UK; in the United States it was not originally widely available, but has become more widely sold in recent years.

PG Tips tea is not the same as tippy tea, which often contains a greater proportion of tips and leaf buds than one bud to two leaves.

First impressions, The smell of raspberry is very welcoming. However, the taste is also full of raspberry that it’s overpowering the subtle hints of green tea. The bitterness of the tea base and the raspberry flavour don’t go well together...

PG Tips is a blend of CTC teas. Most American grocery store teas are "orthodox" teas, however. That's worth knowing for a few reasons.

First, while orthodox production results in leaf pieces of various sizes (dust, fannings, broken leaf, whole leaf), the CTC machines produce small, uniform pellets. One thing that me...

A trip to London introduced me to this brand. I must say I enjoy the black tea it offers. I prefer with milk and sugar. Very affordable to the average tea drinker.

PG Tips is a reasonable British black tea blend. It is one of my "old standbys, " and I particularly like that PG Tips prides itself on ethics.
