I am a newbee here and am still fairly new to tea. Its funny because I have been making various pottery items for about 7 years along side a guy that makes nothing but teapots and tea ware but I never drank the stuff until a year ago. I actually would get mad when people suggested I drink tea when I had a cold. All I could think about was Lipton teabag tea my parents drank and thought no way! Then I was down in my little clay room in the basement adding details to something I was making and I had Modern Marvels come on the History channel. It was a show all about tea. I actually listened to it and when it was done I looked at my persian cat that insists on helping me make everything and said "damn, I need to drink some tea!"
So I tried some Yogi tea and liked it much more than Lipton
and then discovered a real tea shop in Missoula that had leaf tea of different variety and I have been happy ever since. And I even have the teapot guy drinking it.
Anyway, I don't know much, but I know I love tea!
