PG Tips Teabags
Tea is a big thing in our house. If there aren't any teabags then you would think the apocalypse had descended on the world!
We have tried many brands of tea in our house but none of them beat PG Tips. Other teas always taste weak and seem to have a little twang to them whereas PG Tips always tastes like tea if that makes sense! PG Toips has been around as long as I can remember. I am 27 and my Mum has been drinking PG Tips all my life. It is definately one of the more top of the market teas and always seems to be one of the most expensive. PG Tips comes in variety of sized boxes. I think the smallest is 35 teabags and the biggest is 240. We usually purchase the middle of the road size which is the 160 tea bags to a box and that usually costs around £4.00. It tends to last us a good two months.
PG Tips is different to other teabags in the way that the bags are shaped like pyramids. According to PG tips this shape allows the tea to infuse in the water better and gives a better flavour. I tend to leave my tea bags in for ages as I like a really strong cup of tea and I do find it very flavoursome. With the pyramid bags, I always leave one tip floating above the water so I can hold it between my fingertips and dip it in and out to swish the flavour around some more. I also add sugar to my tea but that is just down to personal taste.
PG Tips are available in all supermarkets and are recognisiable in their box with the big "PG" in red and green lettering next to a steaming cup of tea and some tea leaves.
I highly recommend PG Tips above all the other brands.
