Tea Novice? No Problem!
If you have come to this page, we will assume you are in need of some basic information to get started.
That being the case, you have come to right page!
If you are starting out with nothing in your kitchen for tea but a stove, let’s begin at the beginning.
The few items that make your brewing experience the easiest will be as follows:
- Cup or Mug.
- Kettle, or even a pan (to heat your water)
- An infuser, which is a type of strainer that is usually a finer mesh than a screen.
With these items you can brew most any type of tea, tisane, rooibos, etc. with excellent results.
Black tea is the most consumed tea in the USA.
If you have experience with grocery store tea bags, this will likely be a black tea. Of course, there are others available.
We would suggest beginning with a similar tea you are familiar with. We will assume it is Black. Try either the Summer Darjeeling or the Korakundah Estate Organic Black FOP which will represent the most similar tastes.
Follow the brewing suggestions on the package.
Be prepared for a shock!
You will find the astringent level of any loose leaf tea compared to a grocery store tea bag is actually no comparison. You will discover that the loose leaf tea is smooth, balanced and most exciting benefit is it can be used again and again to brew multiple cups of tea.
Try that with a tea bag!
Here are some other suggestions on flavors of tea that would suit any novice’s palette:
- Earl Grey #1
- Jasmine Phoenix Eyes
Be prepared for the taste explosion you will experience after the exposure to grocery store tea bags!

Tea Tasting Terms
Welcome to Kally Tea. We have to admit, once we started drinking loose leaf tea, it quickly turned from a pleasurable delight to a serious passion. We have discovered that drinking loose leaf tea has made us feel better in many ways, not only physically but also mentally and emotionally. Black tea, either straight, or flavored, fulfills our morning get-up-and-go-needs. Green tea, as well as white tea, both have a very calming and satisfying effect on the body. Oolong tea, with its distinct taste, is wonderful any time of the day, and is especially enjoyable after a session of Qi Gong. Herbals also provide wonderful health benefits that seem to have been suppressed for many years.
