Suggestions for a newbie

Hi guys, I've just recently started to approach tea drinking in a wiser and more informed way and would like to get suggestions of some kind of teas to buy.
I, like many others I guess, like very flavoursome and delicate teas, that hit the nose with scented flavours rather than the tongue with astringency or bitterness.
My recent two purchases have been: - Jasmine Dragon Pearls, Dragon Phoenix Pearls (Moli Long Zhu) - 2006 Mengku Lao Ban Zhang Pu-erh
I love the first one whilst waiting for the delivery of the second one.
What would you suggest me to try next?
Many thanks

You have to experiment to some extent; your own taste must be the final arbiter. But that being said...
Delicate, scented flavors, eh? How about some Oolong? There are many types of Oolong (semi-fermented) tea, and of Oolongs many brands of "Ti Kuan Yin" ("Iron Goddess of Mercy"), also acronymed "TGY" from a different transliteration.
A sampler might be good, so you can begin to know the tastes, as at
(inpursuitoftea tends to be pricey, though I like their Nantou Oolong).
Or more reasonably, Upton Tea:
I am sure others much more expert can add to this list.
If you have access to a Chinatown, you might have luck getting this: . It's a reasonably priced good tea (IMO).
I'm still trying things myself. snipped-for-privacy@clubbity.com wrote in news: snipped-for-privacy@y66g2000hsf.googlegroups.com: ...

I'm still trying things myself -- there's an almost endless variety.
Hope this helps.

Hi, If you love delicate flavors, try Silver Needles tea, white tea, and oolong tea. I buy my tea from Halmari tea (

/) an d you will get all of the ones that I mentioned here at a very reasonable r ate. You can also try green tea with lemon. That will be a nice flavor and at the same time healthy too. No bitterness at all. :)

Your choice is good. Try some good Darjeeling teas which have good flavour given by mother nature. I am sure you will enjoy it. Sanwar Tea plantation in Rohini and Gopaldhara
