The meaning of Ya Shi in Chinese is "Duck Shit"!
It is such an awful name! This is not the name we assigned, but it was a very traditional name used in Phoenix town. In any case, tea does not smell like duck shit.
According to the tea history in Phoenix Town, this tea was named by a farmer who found that one of his teas produced very superb quality and unique flavor. He wanted to protect his tea from being stolen, so he decided to call it with a very awful name hoping that no one will come and disturb him. This is how this tea was named as Ya Shi Xiang, literally duck shit flavor.
This tea has a sweet and intense fruity flavor, like golden peach or mangoes. It has a smooth drinking sensation travels down the throat and lingers for a long time. Despite it is rather a higher-end tea, this tea moves fastest in my shop in Malaysia. It is a very popular tea in Phoenix Town as well.
I've selected this tea from much older tea tree so that my customers enjoy the complexity of "duck shit flavor".
