Cup Teapot

Weird types of Chinese black tea...?

I was recently given a set of Chinese tea in little tins. I don't recognize some of the names though. Can anyone out there tell me anything about these teas?
- Shui Sen Tea
- Tit Koon Yum Tea
- Shou Mee Tea

Specifically, I'm wondering what regions they come from, brewing guidelines, broader categories (black? oolong?), more common names for them in the English-speaking world...? etc.

Thanks :)

Shui-sen leaves are most abundantly cultivated at Bohea Mountain, Chung-An, it's a green tea
Tit Koon Yum Tea is a green tea grown in the highlands of Fukin, China.
Shou Mei Tea is a fruity white tea, a mix of tips and upper leaf, it has a stronger flavor than other white teas, similar to Oolong.
In my opinion, for green tea, it's better to drink they way it is, no added sugar, milk or such. For white tea, well, add a little sugar and milk, but not too much.
Warm your cup/teapot thoroughly before you mix the tea leaves with hot water. With "warm" I mean to soak it in hot water for a few minute, not just pour hot water in it. Like putting laundry in water, if you don't get what I meant.
Just go to nearest teahouse, and ask. Better if you have a Chinese teahouse served by a fully knowledged chinese. Then, you can ask more about more types of tea. Good luck in your search!
