So far my favorite teas are oolongs and Japanese greens. I'm really into all types of tea though. There's just so many to try, that it'll take forever before I can claim to be a tea expert.
I think the most important qualities in a tea are deepness of flavor and aroma. I like to smell the tea before every drink I take, and then I like to let the flavor linger and try to figure out the complexities of it.
It seems like the best teas are straight from the origin. The more processed a tea is, or the more commercialized, it seems to lose a lot of character. Someday I'll travel to countries like China and Japan even just to taste truly authentic tea. And someday I want to have a garden with herbs and flowers that I can dry for making my own tea blends!
