That depends Philip. Roll eyes Is the tea made with real PG Tips tea leaves or is it bagged rubbish? Wink

Hi Dutchman, Pam & I used to drink PG Tips, until the day that we tried Ringtons. That was over twenty years ago.

It has got to be outside your residence Philip, and yes I am another PG Tips drinker. If I see the above tea here I am willing to give it a try but have not seen it yet. I am off to make a cuppa. Thumbs up

This reminds me of when I was little we used to have a man in a van who sold tea. I think it was called "Flowery Peco Tips" Is my memory correct?

Hi all, Wave I like Ringtons tea simply because I like it. It is blended to match local water conditions. Pam & I were always PG (our initials too) until Ringtons came along. Cheers! Yes, it is outside my old folks home. Wave

It's hard to find any brand of loose-leaf tea these days let alone Rington's. When you do it's usually in large boxes as the smaller size is no longer offered. Fortunately I drink quite a lot of tea so it doesn't have time to go stale.

Ringtons Tea were in our street last Friday doing some doorknocking so we have decided to give them a try. We only use loose tea as well but much of it seems powdery nowadays and although it is possible to make a strong cup of tea it does not tend to have much flavour.

I am so pleased someone else has noticed the tea is not the same in the packets as it use to be, I opened a tea bag and compared, seems it's the same, which I learned when they first bought tea bags out, they put the dust from the tea which they use to throw away into tea bags. Maybe someone should open a proper tea shop in Coventry Big grin

Proper tea is also very good for your health so I read on a PG packet, prevents hardening of the arteries, also read it off the health news on tv a while ago, especially green tea - link

I've just spent a couple of days at a relatives in a little village in South Yorkshire and my nephew has resorted to ordering PG Tips loose tea over the t'internet because nowhere in the village stocks it Oh my . Not surprisingly they do stock loose Yorkshire tea though but he doesn't like it.

Hi OL, I can buy PGT's here in the supermarket here but it is one of the most expensive to buy but well worth it though. Thumbs up
