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.


Beautiful, many thanks! This is definitely an oolong, but it also might not
be the original tea in this container either. I suspect now that it is not.
