What Does P.G. in PG Tips stand for?

what does PG in PG Tips stand for

When PG Tips was launched in Britain is the 1930’s it was first called (rather bizarrely) Pre-Gest-Tee – suggesting that if you drank it before eating, it would aid digestion.

This was abbreviated to P.G.by shippers and grocers.

The claims to aid digestion were later dis-allowed, and the name was shortened to PG Tips as the best tea is made from the top leaves of the tea bush.
