Do you have pictures of the tea?
Leaves before/after?

Usually darker oolongs are in these
color bags.

unfortunately i just remembered to take pictures after i rinsed the certainly looked like oolong, large leaves, golden color tea. i got the sample with some teapot i ordered on ebay. I guess i will keep trying oolong to see if anything matches the flavor...
will pay more attention and make notes next time i open my sample box(which is overflowing already!)

i am a Chinese Tieguanyin wholesaler. The tea you say is Tieguanyin(铁观音), it is a kind of oolong tea, almost the best kind. it is from Anxi(安溪) Fujian(福建).
