I just wanted to jump in the conversation as I am a self-proclaimed Tea Snob. (who doesn't love self proclaimed experts?)
A great website to wet your tea appetite is www.uptontea.com
Everything is available in sample size, great catalog, and just a great company.
*I have no affiliation with this company other than being a happy customer*
Fine and rare teas are a great luxury that is incredibly affordable, delicious, and healthy.
Enjoying the forums and looking forward to making many new friends here.
