Help identify gift tea for me?

I got this as a gift and can't read what it says. It is an oolong. I haven't tried any yet so that's all I know about my mystery gift tea.

perhaps you could post a photo of the leaves, as I think that would help. :D

Ok. But keep in mind I am using the camera on my phone so the picture quality is going to be awful. The only way I could get a picture of the box was to scan it on the photocopier. LOL

The box says 'Alishan high moutain tea', so it's supposed to be an Alishan.
