If you're looking at names, go with Typhoo or PG Tips for every day tea and Twinings certainly make very good teas as well. As far as types are concerned, I could just direct you here[^] and tell you to look. Big Grin | :-D

Now you need to experiment and learn the different types. Darjeeling or Ceylon are probably the most popular black teas; good every day teas that go well with milk or lemon - not both. Earl Grey is a blended black tea; tres posh. For green teas my favourite is Gunpowder which you can drink alone and is very refreshing; I will oft have this late afternoon. Finally try some Oolong, similar to a Gunpowder but a very distinctive flavour.

If you can, try and find a proper tea shop. I've seen them in some places in Merca and they occasionally know what they're talking about.

And finally, learn how to make tea proper like what Brits do. Any delicate flavour is better from loose leaf rather than bags. Always use a teapot, never make it in the cup/mug. Warm the teapot with boiling water first and then add tea [traditionally a teaspoon per cup and one for the pot; I find this too strong] to the pot and pour still boiling water over it. Leave it to steep for 3-5 minutes and then you can pour it into the cup[s]; straining if you've used loose. I normally add milk to the tea, others will say always add tea to milk. If you can find yourself a nice small tea set it makes the whole thing so much better.
