Full Description

Known as honeysuckle aroma, this artisan tea’s original name “Duck Shit” 鸭屎香 is derived from a whimsical folklore story that adds a veil of southern tea culture. This relatively new aromatic category was cultivated and gained its popularity in 1970s.

Phoenix Mountain, located in the coastal area of the Canton province possesses mineral-rich soil.  Covered by wild tea trees and tea farms, the folklores of Phoenix Dan Cong oolong tea permeate the fresh harvested tea as much as the surrounding mists and fog. The most ancient wild tea trees can reach upwards of 200 years in age. A special type of all natural oolong tea, it is grown for its highly distinctive natural aroma, and is also believed to be the ancestor of all Oolong teas.

Rich and complex in flavor, it features 10 aromatic categories. Organized into hundreds aromatic subgroups by local tea scholars and experts from china, this artisan tea is the inspiration of their labor. Mandarin uses the word ‘Xiang’ or aroma for each specific type that mimics certain flower or fruit aroma. Phoenix Dan Cong’s aroma is never artificially added or perfumed but exclusively cultivated, and each aroma comes from tea plant’s natural aromatic compound.

Phoenix Dan Cong Duck Shit Aroma

Wonderful! After a few years of wondering about any tea called "Duck Shit", I finally got up the nerve to try it, after having some other Dan Cong Oolongs from this wonderful company. I specifically asked for it for a Christmas gift, and boy oh boy, am I glad I got it! Wow. I just ordered some more.

Phoenix Dan Cong Chocolatey Black

I am just finding Phoenix Dan Cong tea, and after being absolutely in love with others in a sommelier's sampler from Serene Tea (orchid aroma), I told my daughter's family how much I loved these, and they gifted me some different ones for Christmas. Wow, this one is also wonderful.
