I've been lurking around this place for a little bit. I've loved tea since I was little, always getting it whenever I went out to eat with the family. I never really got it outside of that, though. I recently started drinking some decent tea, but they were all bagged and herbal-esque. Now that the few boxes I bought of those ran out, I want to move onto the real deal. I've been browsing Adagio for a while and I think I found all the stuff that I need to get a good idea of what is going on. So there we go, that's my introduction post, haha.
Now I am just about ready to actually make my order. If you guys could possibly go over what I have planned, that would be fantastic. I'll probably order on Sunday.
So I was thinking that I need something to actually start out with the whole brewing dealio. What better to start out with than the IngenuiTea? And what's better than getting an IngenuiTea, a book, and 4 samples? Not much, that's what. So here we go, I'm leaning towards the green sampler:

Now that we have the first few samples under way, I was reading that the sampler pack that comes with the IngenuiTea does not really cover the best way to start off with green tea, so I was going to pick up a sample of the Sencha Overture:

So with a good green tea first experience down, on to some other stuff. I was looking at the White Cucumber sample. It looks rather intriguing and the reviews seemed really good:

Here is where it got tricky for me, do I throw down the four dollars for some oolong tea now? I was leaning towards the Oolong #18 tea, the reviews seemed to label it as the choice for a first time oolong tea:

Well there we go. Looking back at the post, it seems like its more of a "help me with my first order" rather than an introduction, haha. So sorry about that. Well I look forward to the whole tea experience and getting out of the bag world, even if I was only in it for a month or two
