Ya Shi Xiang "Famous Duck Aroma Tea"


The famous "Duck Poop tea".  Stories abound for how this tea got such a name.  It is from old trees. One story has it that the leaves were so good that people came and helped themselves. In an effort to stop that practice, the farmer got ducks to live around and in the trees. The smell they left discouraged people from going close and picking the leaves and the name stuck.  
Once you get over the name and brew yourself a cup, initially there are sweet, light floral notes with a tiny hint of bitterness,  followed by a smooth mineral finish and long lasting aftertaste. Incredibly complex.   
Ingredients: Dan Cong Oolong tea from Phoenix Mountain
