The monkeys are eager to give a helping hand now that you have set them free, but even I struggled to open the plastic wrapping on the packet... The instructions on the side of the pack were short but promised great things: "there you have it; a delicious brew fit for a monkey." (assuming you're a monkey!) PG Tips are members of Ethical Tea Partnership which is perhaps why they've now decided to set all the monkeys free...
Once you work your way through the annoying perforated cardboard, the monkey quickly dives in to find you the perfect PG Tips Pyramid tea bag. I asked monkey why the tea wasn't foil packed, but the monkey simply mumbled something about the cost of foil packed freshness, and something about it not growing on trees.
A few minutes later and we were ready, I would have offered the monkey some, but decided that it was too hot and it would probably stain his white t-shirt. Tea Tasting: The tea tasted fairly fresh, mild, and once again wasn't very satisfying, it seems sort of dull, bland even, lacking in flavour. I'll ask the monkey to try harder next time.
