Just got my Black Tea sampler and Ingenious Tea maker (thank you UPS guy, and Adagio!) and I decided to start with the Earl Grey Moonlight. I am sipping on it as we speak, er uhh well as I type haha :]. I am not a professional tea taster and this is the first cup of loose leaf tea I have ever had. I love the smell, though I'm not sure what to compare it to. The flavor is like none other I have tasted. Still new to the tea world so I will give the other ones that came with the sample and then I may move on to Oolong just to see what the difference is. I am looking for a cheap teapot if anyone can point me in the right direction, a Kyusu preferably, I love the look of them :]

I always start my mornings with a 1/2 juice/1/2 water mixture. Perfect blend since I find many juices to be too sweet.

Also energy drinks have been more common with me.

Thanks :] I'll probably do a little more looking around before I make a decision. I want to find my favorite tea first too, I plan to dedicate one tea to the pot that I choose.
