This is an all time fave in the UK and has many fans including me. It is quick brewing and very robust, certainly not for the faint hearted, or the chap down the page who gets 5 cups from 1 tea bag. He is clearly not an English tea drinker, who on average likes it hot, strong and sweet with a good dash of milk. Of course, like any other food or drink, the perception of how good a particular tea is, can be a highly subjective choice. But in the case of PG Tips the sales figures speak for themselves, whatever the Lapsang Souchong tut-tutters may have to say on the subject. Just how long you steep a teabag for is, again, a highly personal matter. For me 1m 37.5 secs is just right although I do know a couple of chaps, hod-carriers (HC's), who leave it in until they have drained their mugs. HC's don't use the traditional English cup and saucer with raised pinkie. The cup and saucer brigade, a dying breed most certainly, would never use PG Tips Pyramid bags, preferring instead the loose leaf version in a teapot. The Pyramid bag is a meaty beast and easily provides two 10 ounce mugs of strong black tea. Five would be pushing it a bit. But this is a tea for all occasions, and may be served accordingly, either with cucumber sandwiches or good
"Digestive" biscuit.
