PG Tips Teabags
Advantages: Good taste, reasonable cost
Disadvantages: Not the best taste
I am an avid tea drinker. In fact, I cant start thinking straight in the morning before I have had a hot steaming cup of tea.
I have tried a few brands of tea, and while not being my favourite, PG Tips is one of the brands I buy now and again.
PG Tips is somewhere mid range in concerning the price, and is one of the best selling brands of tea. I usually buy the large box of 240 bags as this works out much cheaper than buying smaller packs. I think you get it for around £6, and is available in all supermarkets.
The packaging is as you see in the picture. The top part of the carton opens like a lid, and inside, there is another bit of cardboard which is resealable and helps to keep the tea bags fresh for longer.
The tea bags are pyramidal in shape. I dont really think the shape of the tea bag matters at all.
As I buy the bigger pack, it lasts me a while (around 6 to 8 weeks) and I dont think the tea has been affected by the time in storage.
The taste is not the best, but quite acceptable. I always feel that PG Tips has a weird paper like smell coming from the tea initially which sometimes puts me off. I have noticed it every time I try PG Tips after trying another brand.
While there seems to be various flavours of tea, I stick to regular black tea.
However, I am still quite happy to drink it.
One thing I do wish is that they would mention on the packet where exactly the tea was coming from.
Summary: decent cup of tea
