Duck Shit Fragrance - Dancong Oolong tea - 2015

Sold Out

Description

One package contains 50 grams of loose leaf tea


Duck shit Fragrance (Ya Shi Xiang) tea received its name by the original farmer who wanted to hide the success of the tea from fellow farmers. Tea plants can be cloned by taking clippings and nurtured then nurtured to mature tea trees. Ya Shi Xiang is a style of oolong from the yashixiang cultivar (dancong 单枞) tea trees that grow in the Phoenix Mountains. Dancong is the general style of tea from the area and also means it's from the same cultivar and garden. 

We're excited about this tea's pleasant balance of floral notes, oxidation level and slight toastiness that lingers on your breath long after you finished.
