    The upper left one, #8, looks kinda like longjing but according to the characters it isn't. Wish I could read the labels, but I'm not at that point yet! The other two don't look like anything I've got in my tea stash, so I'm no help there.

    Not sure how much help this is, but I tried doing some detective work...

    1 - 甘片 - There's heung pian/jasmine (香片) and gua pian (瓜片) but I haven't seen 甘片 before.
    5 - 甜茶 (lit. "sweet tea") - Almost certainly this.
    8 - 黃仙 (yellow angel/fairy) - There's huang shan (黃山 - a famous region) and shui shin/narcissus (水仙) but I haven't seen 黃仙 before either.
