How To Make The Perfect Cup Of Pg Tips Tea}

Submitted by: Paul Gerst

PG Tips may be the most well-known brand of tea in the world. Following a few simple steps can help you get the most out of your cup of this popular brand.

PG Tips is the best-selling tea in England and is available worldwide. It is steadily increasing in popularity in the United States. PG Tips is full-flavored and has a rich and refreshing taste.

Water quality is crucial in making a good cup. Always make sure to use fresh water each time you boil. For maximum taste, do not re-boil water. To be at its best, tea needs oxygen to bring out taste and flavor. When you boil water twice, you remove all the oxygen in the water. Your tea will taste dull and flat. Black varieties, such as PG Tips, need water to be at a rolling boil.

Put your PG Tips bag or loose in your cup and then pour water over it. This helps it infuse better, producing better taste. Allow it to steep for about 3 minutes. If you like it mild, maybe a little less, for a stronger drink, a little more. When you remove the bag, don’t squeeze it back into your cup.

For a pot of PG Tips, alter the directions slightly. Start by warming the teapot by pouring in some boiling water. Swirl it around and then pour the water out.

Use 1 bag for every 2 cups. With loose, pour in 1 teaspoon for the teapot and 1 for each cup. Allow the tea to steep for about 3 minutes. Again, less time for milder and more for stronger.

Now, prepare tea the way you prefer. Add milk and/or sugar for the way you enjoy it. Generally, English Teas are best served with sugar and milk.

Before jumping into these steps, make sure you buy the genuine article. Authentic PG Tips is still made in England. The PG Tips tea bags come in the famous pyramid shape. The pyramid shape provides 50% more room for leaves to flow and infuse, thus delivering double the flavor.

PG Tips tea bags and loose come in a variety of sizes with the most common being the 80 bag box or 8.8 ounce box of loose.

Whether you buy PG Tips online or in a local store, make sure to look at the “Best By” date. This is your guide to a fresh cup of tea. Every box of PG Tips has a “Best By” date located on the bottom. Get a box with the date at least a couple months from your purchase date.

Dating back to 1869, PG Tips begins with tea dealer Arthur Brooke in Manchester, England. He formed Brooke Bond & Company, which sold blends of tea to stores. In 1930, the company created a brand called PG Tips, which quickly become one of the United Kingdom’s top brands. The tea was thought to help with digestion if you had a cup before eating.

PG Tips was sold only as loose until 1960, when tea bags were introduced. Then, in 1996, the now famous pyramid-shaped bags were introduced. The company introduced a decaffeinated version in 2004. PG Tips celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2005. In Scotland, a blend of PG Tips called Scottish Blend was designed for the soft waters of Scotland.
