Yancha bing

hi everybody,
I was filling my online shopping carts with some teas when I ran across this yancha bing: http://www.teaspring.com/Wu-Yi-Yan-Cha-Bing.asp As far as I can tell, it is more of a novelty than anything else. I have no intention of buying it, I am just curious of your thoughts about it... :D

Also: thread from a couple years ago about the same bing viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7617&p=83950&hilit=yancha+bing#p83950

I've read about yancha being pressed into bing for aging because the loose leaf tend to break during storage even when kept still in a sealed jar.
But this bing seems to be so heavily pressed that it's probably impossible to pry them out without breaking.

I bought that bing a few years ago, nothing great but gave a decent wuyi hit for a modest sum. It was very heavily compressed.
