If you are looking for an authentic English Tea, make sure to start with one made in England.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 31, 2010
English Tea is the most popular variety. But many consumers dont realize that a tea from any country can be called English Tea. For an authentic experience, consumers should look for a brand made in England. These brands are now widely available to consumers in the USA. Internet retailer teadog.com offers the largest selection of authentic, made-in-England teas.
Two main types of English tea are available today. The most common type is English Breakfast Tea, which can be made by companies in any country. The second option is the authentic variety from companies in England. The authentic varieties often have large international followings, such as PG Tips, Typhoo, Taylors of Harrogate or Williamson Tea. Also available are smaller brands from England such as Jacksons of Piccadilly and Lifeboat.
England's most popular, PG Tips Tea traces its roots to 1869 when Arthur Brooke opened a shop in Manchester. In 1930, the PG Tips brand name was formally introduced. Initially sold only in loose form, PG Tips in bags was introduced in 1960. PG Tips also introduced pyramid-shaped bags, which are widely used today. Pyramid shaped bags provide up to 50% more room for the leaves to flow and infuse, thus delivering double the flavor.
More than just a brand or product, PG Tips is part of English culture. The brand's first commercials ran in 1956 and featured chimps dressed as humans drinking tea. The ads ran for almost 50 years and are recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the longest running ad campaign in the world. It is still made in Manchester, England. PG Tips offers regular, decaffeinated and Special Blend in bags and loose.
Available in the distinctive red box, Typhoo Tea was started in 1903 by John Sumner, an English grocer. He created the tea for his sister, who suffered from indigestion. Typhoo offers regular and decaffeinated varieties. Authentic Typhoo is made in England and available in bags and loose.
Founded in 1886, Taylors of Harrogate is one of the last independent family tea businesses in the United Kingdom. Taylors of Harrogate is one of the very few companies to offer the complete range of black, flavored-black, green and herbal varieties. Taylors of Harrogate products are still made in England and available in a number of sizes both in bags and loose.
Another brand from England, Williamson Tea is one of the only companies that grow, produce, market and sell their own product. Williamson is highly-regarded for its English Breakfast and Earl Grey varieties. Williamson Earl Grey won a 3-star award from the International Taste and Quality Institute, which consists of top professional chefs and sommeliers from all over Europe. Williamson English Breakfast gained a 2-star award from the same organization.
