Well, since nobody’s reported on this in a few years, I’ll give it a go! I bought this from YS in early 2021, hoping the added humid storage would have mellowed it out. And I must say the first six steepings were lively and not unpleasant. The next six revealed a tame, consistent and smooth brew. No fishiness or swamp odors or flavors, just a long-lasting good tea. I used 4 g in 4 oz boiling water, using a stainless steel strainer and small teacups, with increasing infusion periods to achieve about the same mahogany-colored liquor throughout. As noted by another, the loosely pressed cake was easy to pry apart. I could see myself buying another cake with this becoming a daily drinker. No complaints! Affordable, at about a nickle per infusion.
I snagged a few photos from the YS site, to illustrate the listing.
