Hi all! I'm very new to the world of tea. For Valentine's day I recieved my first teapot, and a variety of teas. Most are tea bags (some green, some flavored, mostly black). I also recieved a bag of mango flavored black tea from our local tea/coffe house. I opened the bag and honestly didn't like the fragrance at all. I decided to try it, hoping that it tastes better than it smells. I just couldn't get into to it, it was just too...fruity? Or something. I don't know. It just wasn't my thing. I think I would like a more bold, warm flavored tea. Growing up in the south, I've lived on heavily sweetened black iced tea, but I'd also like to venture out and find something more light and refreshing.
Does anyone have any suggestions or favorites they would like to share? I'm so new to this tea thing, but I'm very very interested to learn more and try out some new teas. I've been looking at tons of Adagio's tea, and I plan to order many samples to find what I like. Also, tips on brewing.. etc. would be great.
