Which oolong?

For the life of me I can't decide between these three. Can you guys give me your opinions? I know this is really open but I figured it'd help to seek your advice. Thanks! http://www.teavivre.com/monkey-picked-oolong-tea/, http://www.teavivre.com/tie-guan-yin-oolong-tea/, http://www.teavivre.com/jin-xuan-milk-oolong-tea/

Why not just get a sample bag of each and then decide? =)

I would not be inclined to order from someplace that didn't offer samples, unless I already knew their offerings well enough to predict what I'd like pretty accurately.

I would go for no 2. The first one is the same as no 2 but roasted, lol, and the last one is probably a very ordinary tea. Read this.

Good luck, anyway.

I saw samples at $2 so...hmm?

I'm not at all familiar with the vendor, has anyone bought from them?

Semi related, there is a Taiwan oolong OTTI (Official Tea Tasting Initiative) round just around the corner! This will be a great opportunity to sample 6 distinct styles of Taiwan oolong from a single vendor!

I'm sorry guys about the sample thing. I could have sworn that a few days ago that was not there haha. Thanks for the recommendation of no. 2. That's the one I was thinking about too. They are sending me some samples as we speak.
