Default English tea more available?

Is it just me or is true English tea becoming more available at the local supermarket? I can buy both PG Tips and Harrogate Yorkshire Gold and Red in 40 bag boxes easily now at prices lower than on the Internet, i.e., around $4.50 a box. No shipping cost either.

we can get Tetley British Blend in Stop & Shop andthey also have some other tea inthe "irish" section along with jaffa cakes, hob nobs, pickle and a bunch of chocolate.

Maybe people are starting to realise that drinking Lipton tea is akin to drinking colored water.

Yep, can buy it locally. PG Tips in 80 ct box, no 240 ct box. In fact, I am OUT and will need to go to one of the stores that carries it.

Go to your local purveyor of fine foods, and obtain for yourself a varied selection of loose leaf teas. More exciting than a bag of PG Tips any day. Right now I'm particularly partial to one known by many names including but not limited to 'Smoky Russian Caravan'.

Aye, I do that as well...but it's just so much more easier using a PG tips bag in the morning

PG Tips is sold all over here, and one place has yorkshire tea and somin' else...haven't seen tetleys though..

I can get PG tips in a number of locations around me, which is great, as its the only real Brit thing I crave on a daily basis. I usually pay $6.99 for 80 at Cost Plus.

Well, yeah, I'll grant you that much. (Said the coffee drinker.)
