Teavivre’s Duck Shit Aroma (Ya Shi Xiang) Dan Cong Oolong Tea belongs to light oolong. After first time baking for the raw leaves and second time for the dry leaves, the fragrance of this tea becomes especially prominent and long-lasting. Some tea lovers may compare this tea with Tie Guan Yin, since these two teas are all belong to high-fragrant oolong. However, compared with the “Guan Yin Yun” of Tie Guan Yin, Dan Cong also has a special “Shan Yun”, which endows the tea a fuller taste and a better balance between tea aroma and taste, so that creates the intoxicating scent and sweet liquid.
