This tea is a dark oolong with a baked orange aroma. I get a fruity citrus taste with flavors of orange and maybe a hint of floral on the back end. It is not a flavor profile that appeals to me, but it was not a bad tea with decent sweetness and no astringent aftertaste.

Flavors: Citrus, Orange

205 °F / 96 °C 5 g 5 OZ / 147 ML

This tea is a medium oolong with a baked floral aroma, which is contrary to its name. Ya Shi Xiang, according to Teavivre’s description, translates to Duck Shit Aroma. I guess the person who named this tea only fed his ducks flowers. It has a buttery sweet taste with flavors of flowers and a little creaminess. There is a touch of savoriness and the flavor is quite complex. This tea is definitely something I would drink again.

Flavors: Butter, Floral

The story goes that the farmer had a tree of such amazing aroma that everyone came from miles around to take illegal cuttings. So when they asked where the good tea came from he told them the wrong tree.

If they asked about the right tree he would say ‘no, not that one, it smells like duck shit’ and the name stuck

Thanks for the back story. I figured there was an interesting tale behind the name.

This tea has a rich amber color and an aroma of hay and molasses. It has interesting flavors of hay, like a white tea, and molasses, like a black tea. I also get a little spiciness, like cinnamon, reminiscent of a Rou Gui Oolong Tea. It isn’t something I would put into my regular rotation, but I am glad I tried it.
