I thought this was extremely obvious, but I was so wrong. I looked for the town portal icon on the toolbar at the bottom, but it's not there? I checked again, no definitely not there! I checked key bindings. The T is supposed to portal me. Pressed it and nothing happened. This led me to think that this might be something I get later on in the game as there is no such thing as a Town Portal tome.

So what do I need to do to get the ability to portal back to town?

You get Town Portal early in Act I, after retrieving Leoric's Crown (a quest on the main quest line).
