I finally made my way over to Tea Trekker! (which involved falling waist deep into a snow bank)
I mean, how likely is it that there is an expert tea store in your town?? They go to China to buy all the teas!
I spoke with Bob about the teas I like (Da Hong Pao, Shui Xian, Tie Kwan Yin, Taiwan oolongs, but not Bai Hao, black, or white teas so much). I really have been wanting to get into green teas, so Bob recommended me this as a good transition from oolong to green.
I really like this tea – it is strong like an oolong but you can really taste the differences. This is great, and it tastes so fresh! It’s slightly bitter/astringent, but I actually kind of like it – it’s something that will probably grow on me (unlike astringent oolongs!!)
