In 1893, he established Thomas J Lipton Co., a tea-packing company with its HQ and factory in Hoboken, New Jersey, US.

It is available in 33 countries around the globe."

PG Tips is England’s No. 1 Tea, not least because of our ingenious pyramid bags, which act like a mini teapot, giving the leaves plenty of room to infuse. In 1930, PG Tips was launched in the UK as a loose leaf tea in 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 Tips takes only the top two leaves and a bud to make its tea.
