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 teapot....it 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!)
