Duck Yeah 2021 Spring Yashi Xiang Dancong Oolong



When people talk about milky oolongs, this is the tea they’re talking about. This Yashixiang, aka “Duckshit fragrance”, Dancong is back for the 6th time and easily one of our favourites year after year.

Made from high altitude, old bush material, this tea comes from the origin region of Ping Kang Tou (坪抗头), home of the mother tree.

We highly recommend this tea as a companion to our Easy Breezy Yashi. This tea offers a similar characteristic fragrant, but with an added depth of flavour, thick mouthfeel and milky quality that comes with in higher end Dancong. Having undergone traditional charcoal roasting, this tea has a smooth texture that rolls in the mouth.

Fortunately, this varietal tastes nothing like the name would suggest. The story goes that this name came about when the owner of the original tea bushes attempted to thwart potential thieves from trying to steal the bushes, claiming that ducks relieved themselves in the area around the bushes and that the tea was no good.

That name has stuck and to this day the varietal is one of the most common ones in the market, so this tactic probably didn’t work. The name has managed to remain popular as well, even against recent attempts to sanitize it – after all “silver flower fragrance” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Please note that the 250g size does not include a tin.


We recommend brewing this tea using Chaozhou style gongfu brewing. Here’s how it’s done:

    This is the most exciting Ya Shi Xiang I had encountered. It’s character is unmistakably floral and creamy as expected from this varietal but it’s in another level, deeper, bigger and sharper.
    Speaking of sharpness this has prominent bitterness up front but quickly tranforms to comforting warmth which continues to soothe my throat and leaves a pleasant quality like well-made caramel.
    It’s energy is also special, arousing, but rather calming also.
    I stongly believe this will be a great hit for anyone who seeks introduction to high-mountain experiences.

    This is undoubtedly one of the best teas I have ever tried, and at least the best yashi xiang. Extremely floral and creamy from the first steep, with an absolutely unreal texture. Super thick and silky smooth. Perfect level of bitterness as well.

    Brings a smile to my face each time I brew this. Strong floral fragrance wafts from the pot, deep roasted sweet taste in each sip, smooth mouthfeel. Good for up to 6 steeps gongfu style. The premium standard of this level is even more obvious when compared to the Easy Breezy Yashi Xiang, which carries the same delightful floral aroma but lacks the punch that Duck Yeah has. Definitely repurchasing!

    //Smell : Nice floral smell with just enough of roasted notes
    //Taste: wild flowers essential oils, nuts, gentle roast, perfumed and estival
    //Body Sensation: light headed, slow brain, stun

    I like the taste a lot but less the effect on the body.
