hi guys I like tea also. I just have green tea bags that says organic on them. I let them sit for a couple hours in a thermos.

Tea bags are always a waste of money, I wouldn't recommend it at all.  Get loose leaf tea, a $5 infuser and boil a pot of water and let it steep for however long it says.

ducis are you a fan of only green tea or others??

As a tea vet, Cirus will probably recommend ginseng oolong

Yeah ginseng oolong is always a good go-to for beginners.  Not too strong, not too bitter.

As far as green teas go, gunpowders are always the most mellow.  This one is really nice and fruity but sold out apparently, hopefully not permanently.  Genmaicha is another good choice (it's not known as the people's tea for nothing) as it's hella cheap and fairly sweet and has a nice rice flavor.  Sencha is great if you want something strong (in my experience organic is usually quite a bit better but I don't know if that's always true).  It tastes like asparagus (pretty earthy) and has a little bit of a buttery aroma as well.

Aside from green teas, I have recently become a huge fan of pu'erh tea.  Known as the king of teas, pu'erh is analogous to fine wine--complex flavors, better with age and feeling drunk if you drink a lot of it (this is probably my favorite thing about it).  Straight pu'erh that has been aged for several years is really strong, but you can find blends that have dried fruit and spices that are aged only a year or two that are really nice and not too strong.  First Flush Darjeeling is my favorite black tea and has a woody taste and aroma. 

I would look on Yelp or Google Maps for a good local tea house where you can try these out.  I will post any updated info if I remember anything that I haven't posted here (Y)

Oh yeah also go to Teavana (I'm sure there is one close to you), they are the best tea houses in the country.

I went to Teavana yesterday, tried a couple of samples. I liked their dragonwell green tea. The others were too sweet for my taste. The boxes are expensive though! 70 some bucks
