It is indeed! From PG tips - About Us (http://www.pgtips.co.uk/aboutus/):

1930s - The pre-digestive era

Arthur Brooke launches in the UK tea market under the name of 'Pre-Gest-Tee'' - suggesting that the tea could be drunk before food was digested. Grocers abbreviate it to PG, and the company adds 'tips' to highlight the fact that PG uses the top two leaves and a bud to make its tea.
