Howdy from a former Queens and mid Hudson Valley-er.

Do you have any experience in tea? Oolongs are always a favourite, and can come reasonably priced. They usually carry spicy, grainy, roasted sweetness in the flavour profiling. If you want more of a foresty, soily taste, then some pu-erhs would be good. If you want that, but also with a hint of sweetness, and almost berry like taste, then a shu pu-erh would be good.

It all depends on what you want. Additionally, pu-erh is difficult to screw up. Most Oolongs are pretty forgiving as well. It's when you start getting into your green and white teas that one must pay a little more attention, as mere seconds on an over-brew can skew profiles.

Welcome to the site - hope to see you around.
Peace, love, and tea -

Hello Mark, welcome to TeaChat.

I would suggest that you try lots of teas to see what is to your liking.

Hey, Mark! I'm in Manhattan and love tea. I'm currently slogging my way through some very old Japanese green stock--it makes great refrigerator tea. You'll find lots of good vendor recommendations here and I'd add that I've yet to find any really good brick-and-mortar sources in NYC. I've found that online is the way to go.

Are you leaning towards any particular types of teas at this point?
