Just some quick notes I jotted down while I was working about this bagged tea sample I picked up in the kiosk at our local Sam’s Club:

- North and South Indian tea blend
- Well-constructed silk pyramid bag with a clever notch on the tag to keep it from falling into the cup
- I steeped it for 7 minutes (by accident- lost track of the time) in boiling water
- Surprisingly mild flavor for 7 minutes of brewing
- Tasted slightly harsh
- Mild aftertaste
- Overall standard black tea taste- no flavor attributes shouted for attention
- Neither exceptional nor exciting

I should qualify this review by admitting I had a fine cup of Oliver Pluff English Breakfast loose leaf tea 15 minutes before this one, and Pluff was still on my palate (and mind).

Flavors: Tea

Boiling 7 min, 0 sec

I ventured into the world of serious tea drinking in the Summer of 2011. I started out slowly and gently with bagged tea but climbed to the incredible flavorful heights of loose leaf teas in October of that year. Once you go leaf, you never go bag (except when you get free samples)!
