PG Tips

Tea: PG Tips

About This Tea: PG Tips is a very widely available teabag. It is well known as being an enjoyed black tea blend. It can be found at a wide variety of stores including most grocery stores. Pricing for these can vary quite drastically based on volume (more than most teas).

Teabag: The teabag is a paper pyramidal style teabag. There is no string attached to this teabag interestingly enough.

Infusion Parameters: 6 oz, 208F, 3 min

Infusion: This tea has a bold black aroma to it. The tea has a copper red color. The beginning of the tea has a little bit of a bitterness to it, and finishes with a fruity aftertaste. There is a medium sense of astringency on the backside of the tea.

Rating: 7/10

Conclusion: This tea is surprisingly good. It is very inexpensive and quite available. There is nothing really to knock about this tea, but it just doesn't have any outstanding qualities to it. Fairly good tea though. Thanks to Jessica over at Authoritea for a few of these teabags.
