That could be anything, Vietnamese oolong, Thai oolong, oolong from anywhere in TW or it might actually be Alishan oolong. :wink: The packaging doesn't mean anything.

So there is really no way to know?
could it not be safe to drink?

Lol, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck...

...then it's probably Ali Shan oolong. :wink: That's as much information as we have, and the packaging says what's already been mentioned - that it's gaoshan Alishan oolong - so I don't see why it would be unreasonable to suppose that's what it is.

Of course packaging can lie. So the best way to know is to taste it.

Please open it and drink some. Let us know what it tastes like and post pics of the leaves pre and post brew! :)

BTW, where did your mom get it?
