People here and my family have a long tradition of drinking Anxi Tie Guan Yin ,one major Oolong branch in our nearby province,Fujian. For a long time I don’t fancy it very much,for its sharpness and greenness in extreme density(which brings out some hidden bitterness and smokiness as well), whereas there are some very good orchid、floral and crystal-clear nature in it .Of course I had some great time with Tie Guan Yin before when it’s lighter-bodied ,but not very often.
Yesterday as I arrived home,I found this one out,steeped some loose tea in luke-warm water with rose buds and 2 dried lychee for a few hours with 1L of water,and it turned out quite delightful.The tea became lighter、pleasant kind of green ,with a moderately sweet and fresh aftertaste. I think I may have found a personally better approach to preparing this tea finally.

I may have different rating systems as to different kinds of tea,so maybe when you see A is rated higher than B while they are not in the same kind(like they are both black or green or herbs or sth),then it’s possible I like B better personally.
