Need help identifying tea I got

by ktgw » Oct 2nd 15 7:06 am

Hi All :)
I got two packs of tea from a friend.
I know it's Oolong tea from Taiwan, but don't know what type of Oolong or anything else.
Could you please help me find out what tea I got.

I've attached photos of the tea packs.

Thanks.

Looks like High Mountain Oolong from Ali Mountain (阿里山 = Alishan) in
Taiwan.

Just my two cents. :)

Could be anything, tea stores in Taiwan sometimes use any old packaging. Once you open it and drink it you'll know what you have. ;)

Definitely looks like oolong from the packaging though; it's rolled like an oolong vs open leaf.

That second picture... I've seen that same exact packaging on either YS or DTH I'm almost positive... Although its def very true these could just be generic packaging. Any other stickers or labels on them?

Yes. Base on the wording in the package, it is high mountain Oolong from Ali Mountain in Taiwan.

If you opened the package, you can share some tea leaves photos as well. :D
