I think the Wuyi is generally considered to be a better tea, but I really prefer a good greenish TKY.

Well, I am quite partial to Wuyi oolongs. However, I think it is pretty safe to suggest that most of the people on this site will tell you to try them and see which one YOU like :)

This comes down to personal taste, surprise surprise!!!

I happen to love both, but I tend to gravitate more to the greener oolongs such as TGY.

But some Wuyi is mind blowing.

i think im the only one who probably gravitates towards it whole heartedly, but, Ti Guan Yin (Also called called Ti Kuan Yin, Monkey Picked Oolong) is a much tastier, gentler oolog.....in my opinion at least.

I do think Ti Kuanyin is better than Wuyi Rock Tea, since the production capacity of real Wuyi Rock Tea(1st generation) is only about 1kg, others are different generation, so the taste is different. But there are large production capacity of high quality Ti Kuanyin if the location and weather and technical are suitable. So there are much larger quatity of good quality Ti Kuanyin than Wuyi Rock Tea. Ti Kuanyin is famous by its aftertaste----No one can forget it after 1st try.
