Clearly C. Looks either slightly less oxidized or fired?

This was actually a kinda fun excercise! Granted, I have no idea what I am talking about, but I voted:

C. It had no twigs. (at least not that I could discern in the photo)

This is indeed fun! :D
I will announce the answer this evening.
Although it's pretty much guessing, some of your comments make a lot of sense, maybe even better sense than you thought :D

Ok. The answer is... B!

And Sal's interpretation is exactly right! :o

Prize goes to Sal, Siverneedles and Cinnamon Kitty :D (hey let me know where to send it!)

It makes sense to think A is different, because it's the lowest quality level among all!

And obviously C catches some eyes. It's the least oxidized among all, as said Chip. But the question is "in terms of origin or varietal :P

A, C, D are all Wu Yi Shui Xian. B looks a bit weird. It's a traditional TGY (origin unknown but believed to be Fu Jian). It's basically what all Fu Jian TGY looked like 20 years ago, and now mainly used by older Hong Kong and older Cantonese people. :D

B is clearly processed different, no idea what it is though, hard to tell without closer examination. the others are all probably yancha or something similar.
