If you are new to tea drinking on the daily, I would definitely recommend trying out Earl Grey.
It's definitely a classic and what I believe to be everybody's first or one of the first cups of tea. It is a bit bitter, but more neutral and slightly fragrant.
As for the other teas I mentioned: White, Green, and Jasmine - They have a more Asian-tea quality with light tastes that you should try!
I try out any tea that sounds nice and recommend everyone to explore the world of tea drinking!

But tonight I'm enjoying a young sheng puerh--a sample of 2010 Lao Ban Pen from Norbu, a tea that can be quite horribly bitter if brewed to be, or mellow and herbaceous and sweet as I'm enjoying it tonight. Recently I was enjoying a very similar puerh when I discover that a nearby colleague also liked tea. I offered her some, and she at first declined, saying, "puerh....that's that horribly strong bitter stuff right?" And I soon set her straight and had hr enjoying a cup of my usual rather dilute and mellow brew. Maybe someday a true Earl Grey aficionado will be able to open my eyes to a tea I've given up on....

I can imagine the shudders that will occur when some read this . I love an extra strong brewed ceylon black which I then bruise before adding copious amounts of honey and fresh lemon juice.
I will be buying some lapsang souchong star over the weekend though. I love how it tastes like drinking a campfire. Plus I want to work some of it into a bbq rub for smoked pork shoulder

Plus I have the normal UK blended black tea. Our favourite brand is "Yorkshire Tea" which is a strong "builder's" tea best drunk with a little milk.

I don't have my own wood-burning fireplace. Lapsang is as close as I can get.
