anyone for a cup of PG ...
More often than not I 'oom and aah' over making a purchase, but when I saw this set of miniature tins in TK Maxx for the bargain price of £3.49, I didn't hesitate.
Tiny containers of loose-leaf tea showing three Icons of England, a London bus, a postbox and a telephone box.
I most probably won't use the contents, as in our house it's teabags!
Back in the 1960s before Brooke Bond introduced bags, loose-leaf tea was all you could buy.
Mum was always into the latest trends and had one of those plastic wall-mounted tea dispensers, which gave a measure of tea for the pot.
Like many families growing up in the 1960s/70s, money was invariably in short supply. A few pennies could have been saved by buying a cheaper brand of tea, but Mum always bought PG Tips so we could have fun in collecting the cards. The suspense of finding which card was tucked down the side of the packet, and the disappointment when discovering you already had it!
I can't ever remember completing a set?
