How PG Tips(R) began...Arthur Brooke founded the company Brooke, Bond & Co. in 1869 and in the same year opened his first shop in Manchester, UK. There was never a Mr. Bond--he just felt that the name sounded right! Arthur Brooke developed his own quality blends, mixing together various estate teas. This ensured a more consistent quality because, as with any crop, the characteristics of a consignment can vary according to climate, time of year and general growing conditions. In 1930 PG Tips was launched in the UK as a loose leaf tea with soft packs. It was originally called 'Pre-Gest-Tee' but was soon abbreviated by grocers and van salesmen to PG. The company adopted this as the official name and added 'tips' to highlight that PG takes only the top two leaves and a bud to make its tea.
