Need help identifying an oolong

by sporad » Jan 10th 20 4:36 am

I already posted a version of this on the black tea thread, but thought I'd repost half of it here since I am still in the dark about the oolong in the golden package.

I received it as a gift and it would great to find out what kind it is, who makes it, all that. I only know it's Taiwanese (because that's the only thing I am able to read). Can anybody identify it or read the writing?

The golden-yellow bag is most likely Cuì fēng oolong, Cuì fēng being the region from where the tea comes. The brown bag is black tea, Red Jade or Tai-tea#18.

Great. Thank you for the Oolong tip.
