From my basic Chinese skills I know the Romanization is "Li Jin Lan Cha", Something Golden Orchid tea?

I'm just looking for some help in what I can tell from the shapes of the leaves, the oxidation, and the smell that it is a lightly oxidized oolong.

That's the name of the tea company, not the tea. Lee Jin Lan tea company, or if you read the bottom of the packet, Lee Kum Lan Tea Co. in Hong Kong.

Well darn. Because at the bottom was "綠烏龍". So I thought the characters in the middle were the type of tea.
