The first character is clearly "gold" jin. But the other three I can't
figure out. Boxwood?

What am I drinking? It's some sort of light oolong.


Its Jin1 Tan2 Que4 She2, or [place name] Sparrow Tongue, which is a
cultivar that I *think* is usually made into Long Jing style green tea.
But Im sure you can tell the difference between green and oolong.
