Re: PG Tips

At the Rhein Centre, just across the border, there's a little India shop that sells them. Also you can try the Indian shop by Bahnhoff SBB (Walking away from the station, take first left after Burger King).

Re: PG Tips

Bider and tanner have a brit food section which I think has PG tips but sadly not barry's. There are a bunch of Irish people here and someone is bound to be going home or having visitors.

have you been watching those nostalgic ads on RTE?

Re: PG Tips

The Sri Lankan shop opposite the Denner by the Mülhauserstrasse tram stop on the 11 tram line* sells them.

I'm pretty sure that some of the Indian shops I've been in sell them too, so if you have one local to you.



*Gosh, that sounds complicated, but it's not really.

Re: PG Tips

Oh, and Barry's Tea; I don't know anywhere that sells by the box, but a cup of tea in McGuinness's Irish Pub is made using Barry's teabags.

Re: PG Tips

Definitely the Indian shop just opposite the SBB sells them (and the Indian shop in Liestal) as that is where I buy them.
