My strongest recommendation would be to sample, sample often and keep an open mind. The latter could take you far. I often make it a point to revisit teas that didn't move me at a later date, if I'm on the fence about them. Many a moon have came and went since I tried Dragonwell years ago. I didn't much care for it. Decided to revisit the tea again last November and it knocked my socks off! :biggrin: Admittedly, I'm a different person now in a different place, so keeping an open mind paid off and now I've got new inventory. :wink:

 

Some stores sell samplers and will include samples with other purchases. Can't wait to hear what you try!

I seen you talk about different pots. does that have a big effect on the tea itself? I used to know an instrument maker in Galway (mainly harps) and he was into his tea in a big way. Unfortunately at the time I didn't give it the appreciation it deserved so i don't know what i drank with him.

Yes. Different pots can impact different teas. Some teas are recommended for use with clay pots, others porcelain and/or other materials. When you shop for teas you'll be able to learn its best use.

 

I know what you mean by not fully appreciating experiences at the time.

My favourite vendors are www.mountaintea.com/ for oolong and http://o-cha.com/ for green.

The prices at mountain tea are pretty reasonable, and I'm running out of Iron Goddess.....
