Don't be intimidated by the name, there's nothing shitty about this tea.
Duck Shit Oolong (Chinese: yā shǐ xiāng 鸭屎香) is the most notable oolong from the Phoenix Mountains. Legend says the locals wanted to keep this delicious tea to themselves so they devised an unconventional name - derived from the yellow tint of the soil it's grown in, a key element in the tea's exceptional taste - to deter others from picking it.

I am loving this tea. I have a cup of this or the yellow gardenia oolong every evening after work and I always make a mason jar of cold brew before I go to bed so it’s ready in the morning. I love starting and ending my day with these teas.
