Interesting but pretty hard to drink tea. I got this tea last year and completely forgot about it, so I digged it out today and brewed it in my yixing teapot. Nice huangpian leaves albeit slightly more stemmy than usual, a rich dry and wet leaf herbaceous aroma, and a clear and vibrant almond hue liquor. The flavour is quite bitter, with a unique juicy mouthfeel that slightly quenches the astringency. The texture is pretty astringent, and while I am one for astringent teas, this may just cross the line. The finish & aftertaste was okay, nothing amazing. The cha-qi was relatively present, slight buzziness to the tea, and the steep longevity is decent as well, with the tea possibly lasting upwards of steep 10.
