Welcome here!

Tea samplers sold by adagio should be a good way to start with.

You can also choose the starter set from adagio.

I second the starter set. That should give you everything you need to get started. Good luck!

Adagio's sample tins are the way to go.

The ingenuitea in the starter set is not heated. You pour the hot water in the top of it with the leaves and then rest that on top of your cup/mug when it's done steeping. There's a little video of how it works somewhere on adagio's website.

Welcome teabag...I hope you enjoy your tea journey and share many cups with us.

Sample sets are a great way to expand your horizons. Be willing to experiment and try new types of teas. While you may like black teas now, down the road try oolongs and greens as well.

Or if you are not afraid of the polycarb scare, you can micro the water right in the ingenuiTea then add your leaves.

Joining a tea of the month club is also a good way to expand your tea horizons. Try to find one of the sample clubs where it is rather small quantities and relatively inexpensive to join. That way you get to try out a lot of teas without having to have a bucket of something you don't like sitting around.
