Tough it has not appealing appearance, but the taste note is always sweet and also because of the rough stems, the steeping times can be more than general tea leaves. Also the taste also reflect different tea flavors from different tea regions. So including DaYi, many tea factories or brands collected these HuangPian and take out really bad ones and press left into cake as special product.
