When I opened this, I just went “Who-ho-hoa!”. This has a really interesting smell. It’s complex but not at all understated. Really, extremely smoky for a (presumably) non-smoked tea. Sort of like creosote. The actual flavor is something like a pumped-up green or oolong. This tea has woody notes and a respectable amount of bitterness and astringency. If you have been wishing that greens or oolongs could take milk, this one might be worth a try for you.

All in all, I’m glad I have this tea, but it’s definitely an interesting tea more than a purely delicious one.

I call this my bacon tea. My husband did not like it, I like it in moderation but it does taste like smoked bacon.

This is one big ass piece of sheng for a pot. The compression of this must have been amazing because it would not open after 6 brews… I eventually was a jerk and stabbed it a bit to break it up.
Overall the leaf is beautiful, the aroma is almost unnoticeable, and the taste does not offer anything that would qualify as great in regards to taste of tea. It may be decent, but doesn’t stack up to it’s appearance.
