But when I did that, it only gave me 16 results. I know there's a lot more than 16 results, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Please tell me.
A simple keyword search for "teaware" seems to work quite well.

What happens when I do that & it turns negative?
If you click the negative sign for the tag, then it removes the tag from your search.

Like I had to take a sheet of paper & start listing all the tags from the items I did want & then make another list of the tags from the items I didn't want, but clearly that didn't work.
I've tried to outline the search process the best I can in the videos and online. It sometimes takes a little experimentation. Have a look at the online documentation (link above) for more info. However it's normal to have to experiment when setting up a search subscription however the more work you do now, the less you have to do later.
