P G Tips is now Rainforest Alliance.
But what does this mean, I hear you ask? Well, PG tips's friendship with the Rainforest Alliance means that the tea inside PG tips boxes is grown using sustainable farming methods, the people who pick it earn a better living and their families have access to education and medical care.
In the 1930s Arthur Brooke, launched PG Tips in the UK tea market under the name of Pre-Gest-Tee, suggesting that the tea could be drunk before food was digested (pre-digestive). Grocers quickly abbreviated it to PG.
PG Tips has been the best known and most popular brand of tea in the UK for over 75 years. Stronger than most Indian and African teas, PG Tips has a similar taste to an English Breakfast tea.
Always innovating and improving its products, PG Tips features pyramid-shaped tea bags, which allow more room for tea to infuse and produce a better flavor. The Freeflow material used in PG Tips tea bags is made of webbed fibers, which allow water to pass through the filter, reaching the tea quickly and decreasing the brewing time. The Freeflow Pyramid bags result in fast brewing and a superior taste.
