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.
