金坛雀舌 Jintan Queshe or Jintan Sparrow's Tongue.

It's a green tea, not oolong. Fujian, Guangdong and Taiwan are the main (traditional) oolong tea producing areas. But now, other tea producing areas (Guizhou, for example) are starting to experiment with producing other tea types such as oolong.

Here is the description of the tea on Baidu:

It's produced in the Jintan District of Changzhou city in Jiangsu province.
