Funny thing toad, Dancong is duck poo aroma right? I don’t smell it lol

Thomas Edward(Toad)

you misunderstood me when i said that i have a duck shit aroma dancong.
No all dancongs arent duck shit aroma only the one that was labeled duck shit aroma, I labeled the dancongs I sent you :)
Also you arent going to smell duck shit even in the correct tea because it is just a name

I think the Huang Zhi Xiang is “Gardenia Fragrance”
i’ve also seen it as “Orange Blossom Fragrance”
