Overall this is a nice tea and a good value. The entire brick was thrown in my last order as a free sample. Yunnan Sourcing may no longer give out free samples but Puerhshop still does. The brick was tightly compressed and took a couple of steeps to loosen up and open up. There was some fermentation taste to this but not as much as expected, and the flavor was more sweet than other things. Certainly no fishy taste. The fermentation taste lasted only a few steeps and I was left with a nice semi sweet ripe puerh tea. Not sweet like sugar but it was there. I would also say that there was a bit of a fruity taste in the latter steeps but cannot pin it down to a specific fruit. Overall I liked this tea.
