Commercial Description

(RateTea translation) ...a very special tea. Powdered green tea, crushed tea leaves, and rice flour pressed together into uniform, small, emerald green needles, which partly break up upon steeping. The cup is cloudy, olive green, and very aromatic and potent.

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.
