Duck Shit Dancong
Duck Shit Dancong | 鳳凰單欉鴨屎香
Tasting notes: Wild rose, peach, candyfloss
Origin: Mt. Phoenix, Chaozhou, China
Cultivar: Dancong Almond Scent/ sub-cultivar Duck Shit Scent
Brisk, complex and smooth with a bright aftertaste, this highly aromatic Dancong tea was thus named to keep its deliciousness a secret.
Why we love it:
- It's called Duck Shit Scent. There are a few theories surrounding its name: one is that farmers used duck manure to fertilise the soil. The other is that the farmers who discovered this cultivar (and the amazing aromas it produced) gave it a bad name to prevent other farmers from cultivating it.
- It's a Dancong - a dramatically aromatic type of oolong from Phoenix Mountain (鳳凰山) in Chaozhou. These oolongs are often described as "drinkable perfume".
- It's double roasted, adding a hint of charcoal to the already complex layers of flavours.
Duck Shit Scent is one of the 10 signature fragrances of Phoenix Dancong teas. Dancong (單欉) means “single bush”, i.e., teas consisting of leaves from a single cultivar or plant. In essence this means that more or less each fragrance comes from its own cultivar.
To clarify, none of the teas are artificially scented. Each cultivar has a naturally occurring fragrance that is accentuated through artisan processing and brewing methods.
