Duck Sh*t Oolong (or Ya Shi Xiang 鴨屎香) is a rare Dan Cong Oolong tea which is part of the revered Golden Phoenix family of teas that come from Phoenix Mountain Chaozhou(Teochew) in Northeastern Guangdong province of China. Widely popular for its high floral fragrance and sweet taste, it is one of the best Dan Cong oolong tea we had tasted!
The awful name is just a deception as the farmer did not want this cultivar to be exploited by other farmers. With a 900 years old rich tradition, these teas have a great aroma and unique flavours that come from their volcanic soil.
