From Boulder Tea Shop

Ya Shi Xiang is a delicate Dancong Oolong grown in the Fenghuang Mountain region around 600-700 meters above the sea level. (a.k.a. Phoenix Dancong Mountains)

It is known for its fruit aroma, followed by the scent of flowers and smooth mineral finish.

The name “Ya Shi Xiang”, or “Duck Shit Aroma”, is said to have originated from a farmer in the region who had some tea bushes he enjoyed and wanting to guard the uniqueness of. He told outsiders that the color of the soil was because he used duck shit. He did this so that he could deter them from stealing and cloning the plant.

Here is a bit of information that I have on the tea that I tried:
