I drank this tea in the Unami Maison de Thé in Lille. It was served prepared in a small teapot. This means it was made exactly as it should, though I didn't get to see any leaves.

My first impression was an intensely nutty and earthy aroma. The flavour is nutty too, but not as strong as expensive. It reminds me of autumn leaves somehow. It's not astringent but ever so slightly bitter, and leaves the mouth dry.
The last cup from the bottom of the teapot is a warm brownish orange.
It's expensive to drink in the tea shop, but much more reasonable to buy dry. Though, as with many of Unami's teas, I still think it's on the pricey side.

Yellow tea is always pricey but I'm actually surprised by the price on this one, it seems lower than what I'd expect from this type of tea. On the other hand, it also looks like it's a lower grade of yellow tea than I've typically seen for sale. I've only ever sampled one yellow tea, and it was from this same region but I think was a higher grade, consisting of all leaf buds, and it was well over twice the price.
