There's a time and a place for experimentation, but before you run out and start spending money, get a feel for the types of tea that you'll enjoy. Think about the teas that you've had in the past. Have they been loose leaf or bagged? Were they black teas, green, or tisanes (aka herbal teas that may or may not have any actual tea leaves in them?) Whatever you remember enjoying, that's a great place to branch out from.If you're unfamiliar with tea entirely, or you're not sure of the differences between green, black, or white tea actually are (hint, they're all the same plant, but the color is a matter of when the tea is picked and how it's processed before being sold), our hacker's guide to tea will teach your the basics, and then our complete guide to tea offers some suggestions for you to get started.
