Description

Cultivar:Ya Shi "Duck Shit"
Elevation: 1,000m
Harvest: April 2020

Phoenix Dancong is a special style of oolong tea produced in Fenghuang "Phoenix" Mountain, a coastal region celebrated for its mineral-rich soils, foggy climate and rocky landscape. The region is home to diverse cultivars developed through generations of selective cultivation. Many are named after a xiang or "aroma" type. It is said these tea trees mimic the aromas of various flowers and fruits, like Tuberose, Honey & Orchids, or Almond while others are named from farmer tales. Legend says that when some farmers planted a new tea garden in Wudong Shan, they named the garden Ya Shi or "Duck Shit" to prevent others from stealing their amazing aromatic tea genetics. This 2020 selection features Classic Lan Hua Xiang (White Orchid Aroma) with notes of cotton candy, magnolia, rare orchids, jasmine and Muscat grapes.

Ingredients

Traditional Preparation

Guywan Brewing Guidelines:

Add 7g tea leaves per 150ml of water
Water Temperature: 200°F
Rinse briefly one time
1st infusion: 20 Seconds | 2nd infusion: 30 seconds | 3rd: 1 minute | 4+: add 15 seconds per infusion

Gaiwan Brewing from Rishi Tea on YouTube.



We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tealeaves and the length of the infusion time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
