Yeah, Tieguanyin belongs to the Oolong Tea Class. As I know there are three classes of Tea due to different process of producing, which is Black Tea, Green Tea and Oolong Tea. Black Tea is completely fermented, while Green Tea doesn't have that procedure. And Oolong Tea is halfly fermented. Every class of tea has varieties of tea,usually due to the various producing area. Tieguanyin is mainly produced in Fujian Province. So when we drink different kinds of tea, we can also taste the different culture in the broad China.

I have drunk and enjoyed China tea. But generally I prefer to take tea of a different sort. The way I like to take it best is the English tea ceremony or afternoon tea as we call it The Method Firstly empty the kettle and clean it of any scale. Let the tap run and fill the kettle from fast running water. Heat the teapot with boiling water. To the teapot, ceramic not metal, add one teaspoon of good tea, such as English Breakfast Blend to the pot for each cup and one additional measure. When the water has boiled pour into the pot from a height to ensure maximum aeration. Stir and cover the pot with a cosy, leave for 3 to 5 minutes. The room. Ensure you have a quiet room, with perhaps a slow ticking clock (Less than one tick a second) and birdsong. Arrange the curtains or blinds so that the room is darkish but if possible with some sunlight filtering through. Whilst you are waiting for the tea to brew you will begin to relax and unwind. Enjoying the tea. Serve the tea on a tray with a small jug of cold milk, heating milk changes its flavour. Also you will need some cups, saucers and tea spoons. The teaspoons are important even if, like me, you don't take sugar since they produce the correct noise against the cup and saucer. Pour the tea on from a height to ensure maximum aeration and add just a little milk and sugar if desired but only a very small amount. Beginners may take some 'McVities Rich tea biscuits or Digestives', a cucumber sandwich but should avoid items such as scones that may be enjoyed by those proficient in the art. If you feel the need to talk confine your conversation to subjects such as the weather but leave long pauses for reflection. If done correctly this will produce perfect relaxation and clarity of mind. all the best urban

I have drank Chinese tea a few times, and I've found it really nice and tasty. I can't have tea too often, unfortunately, since the caffeine tends to affect me and make me restless... so I therefore stick to caffeine-less types of herbal tea :)

I like to drink Chinese tea. Chinese tea is an indispensable part of daily life, such drinking habits deeply rooted in chinese people who,for several thousand years.Tea is china's "national drink",because the tea contains vitamins,tea pigment,oil,fluoride and other ingredients,have eyesight,clear brain,diuretic and other functions,so the Chinese people believe that a regular tea,will can live longer,but a progressive and modern science,have proven the effectiveness of tea there is medical,there are benefits to the human body,so tea has been recognized as a world natural health drinks.
