Chou Shi Ya Shi Xiang Dancong Oolong Tea - Sparrowtail Teas

Chou Shi Ya Shi Xiang Dancong Oolong Tea

Regular price $10.00 Sale

Chou Shi refers to new style of processing Dancong Oolong teas, in this case Ya Shi Xiang, aka "Duckshit" tea. Instead of undergoing the more thorough oxidation and charcoal roasting typical to other Dancongs, this one has its oxidation fixed at an early stage, then dehydrated rather than roasted, giving it a fresh taste and appearance that has some similarities with "jade" oolongs such as unroasted Tie Guan Yin. A very rare, special tea that is sure to delight fans of Dancong oolongs, Anxi oolongs, and green teas.

 

This was harvested and processed in Spring 2019 from a limited production.
