Good luck with school. I remember AP's, Junior and Senior year... My advice is just try to remember to balance your life. It isn't that hard to get a 4 or 5 on most of those tests anyway, except maybe Calc BC.
I started on Twinings too, years ago, but there is much better Tea out there. For black tea, the Adagio Sampler
sounds like a good place to start. Loose leaf is the way to go...
The good thing about tea as a hobby in 2008, is that nomatter where you live, you can get awesome tea shipped to you from the Internet, and for relatively low price. Here are some of my favorite black tea's:
Good Assam, like the Meleng Estate
Good Ceylon, like the Vithkanande Estate
Good Fujian Red
Grocery store black teabags are usually a blend of Keemun, Ceylon, sometimes Kenyan tea.
