Tea recommendations

Caterina's wonderful tea recommendations make me wish I drank the stuff more often. Alas I find tea to be one of those beverages that sounds exotically different depending on blend and leaf ("deep overtones of amber and mint", "a mellow fruitfulness", etc.) but ends up all tasting like, well, tea to me. Perhaps my palate is just not refined enough? After all, for a long time I thought wine tasted like, well, wine. And I know that's no longer the case.
