top 10 famous chinese tea

there is no official list for The 10 Most Famous Chinese Tea. however, LONG JING tea is always on the top of the list. 

so far i have tasted longjing, huangshan maofeng, lu-an guapian, tie guan yin, bi luo chun, oolong. and so far i prefer lu-an gua pian and maofeng. coincidentally, both from anhui province, the province where i live now.

my next tea-hunting will be  yunnan pu'erhmonkey king, keemun,  big red robe, silver  needle, and white fur silver needle.  keemun and monkey king are also produced in anhui province.

@zee, havent tried all.but have tried 50% of the top 10.

monkey king tea is grown at the foot of Huangshan Mt. in Taiping County, Anhui. The tea has been produced since the beginning of the 20th century and is produced around the small village of Hou Keng (hou = monkey). It won the "King of Tea" award in China Tea Exhibition 2004.
The best Tai Ping Hou Kui is grown in the villages of Houkeng, Hougang and Yanjiachun.
