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.
It has an elegant sweet honey-like note with a hint of fruity flavor like peaches and green grapes, a very soft taste and long-lasting finishing, it is one of the most enjoyable Phoenix Dan Cong.
The 2021 Ya Shi Xiang is made from old tea trees aged above 70 years old, which grown at altitude of 1000m in Ping Keng Tou Village in Phoenix.
