From Tea Habitat

TH description: Amusing name isn’t it? The legend of how this tea tree got its name goes back more than 100 years. Upon checking up the tree in the morning as the owner usually did, he found clippings of the branches were stolen. Not only this unethical behavior angered the tree owner, the thief impolitely “fertilized” the tree before his departure. As funny as this sounds, the name Thief Poop stuck to the tree for over a century.

Despite the unattractive name, it’s actually a very good tea. If you like medium roast oolong, this tea has what you want, smooth, silky caramel, cool sensation on the throat, and meaty – a term describing full body texture.

Sweet and caramelicious, as described. Very very smooth and delicious. I’m brewing a little more than a gram of tea in a tiny yixing pot, water about 185 degrees for a start, amazing lovely stuff. This would make an excellent ‘starter’ Dan Cong—hard to imagine it going wrong in any unpleasant way. 3 infusions in, still very lovely. Sweet, caramel, fruity—stewed fruit rather than fresh, perhaps—and just a hint of spice.

Back many infusions later—infusions 30 seconds or more now, water 205 degrees, and still delicious—the spiciness is to the fore more now, and still sweet and rich, but a little thinner. Quite a lovely tea.

I’ve wanted to try that one for a while, been afraid of the cost vs. volume.

None of the TeaHabitat ‘single bush’ Dan Congs are cheap, but I’ve always enjoyed them. I brew them up in a very small pot or gaiwan, and get a lot of infusions out of them, so the price per unit of enjoyment is not so bad.
