As the story goes, this tea originated from a farmer that didn’t want his new tea to be stolen so he named it YA SHI or “DUCKSH!T” to ward off competitors - for very good reason. This oolong is from the Song family tea farm, that yields strong orchid notes with a smooth and mellow finish. The large, golden-green, twisted leaves are beautifully sorted and can be steeped multiple times.
