Our Dancong selection wouldn’t be complete without including a premium Yashi Xiang, aka “Duckshit fragrance”. This milky wulong is made from high altitude, old bush material 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 fragrance, but with added depth of flavour, a thick mouthfeel and a 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 “Duckshit fragrance” is just a name. In reality, this tea boasts a highly fragrant and floral quality. 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 clearly didn’t work.
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:
For something different, you can also try cold brewing:
