I have no idea if I'm doing this right; I may update my review if there are any developments.

The loose tea is visually very interesting. Small dark green "sprinkles" that I believe I'm supposed to put directly into the cup and add hot water. They partly dissolve, making the liquid a lovely murky swamp green.
I am not entirely surprised to find it tastes quite bitter and a bit sour. Still, it's not quite as strong as I'd have expected, especially given the colour and opacity. Honestly, the best way I can describe the flavour and aroma is "cheap bulk green tea steeped for too long in too hot water". (Like Alghazaleen green tea which I make extremely strong to make milk tea.) It does have a hint of matcha, though.

It might taste better if I actually knew what I was doing. To be quite honest I'm mostly giving it points for novelty value. In addition, the fact that I had no idea what to expect and have nothing to compare it to works in its favour as I weigh the score against other teas that have disappointed me, or exceeded expectations.
