Overall the flavor is a bit mild, yet the first 2 infusions often have decent flavor strength.

Brewing about 3 grams of this one in a competition tasting set right now.
Wet leaves after the wash have a wonderful damp forest smell.
Yummy semi-aged flavor with sour fruit notes.
Floral elements in the aroma. Fresh mouth feel.
Only slightly smoky on first infusions.
Note that the leaves were aged in mao cha form for 5 years before pressing. This is apparently a great way to speed up the aging process.

Overall seems like a good value currently at $4.50 for 100 grams.
Its nice to be able to buy a a whole cake at only 100 grams.

the sour fruity notes and floral aroma was present in some sessions with this tea and not quite in others. weather this is due to differences in the leaves themselves, or to brewing factors is shard to tell. It appears that brewing with more leaf / too long initial steeping times results in less distinguishable flavors and aromas.
