雪片 – Xue pian, Snow flakes, this is what they call the very late Autumn harvested tea leaves.
As our tea was harvested and made in late October, and also our grower called it Xue Ya Shi Xiang, here it comes the Snow tea.

Yashi Xiang or now also popular it’s English translation as Duck Shit fragrance oolong is a nicely fragrant and very popular variety. The tea’s roasted level is just  in between our Green Dancong and Milan Xiang (Honey Orchid fragrance). Softly roasted so that the honey and flower notes nicely combine with the nutty, darker tones.

The term dancong (单枞) originally meant phoenix teas all picked from one tree. In recent times though it has become a generic term for all Phoenix Mountain (凤凰山, Fenghuang) oolongs. The dancong’s name, as it does in this case too, often refers to a certain scent/savour.

Tasting notes:

1. Sweet, orchid like fragrance
85 degrees, 15s : light colour, lily and osmanthus
2. 20s: soft and round, great calming effect
showing some hints of flowers again
3. 95 fok: lilac fragrance (Green Dancong style) -also in the mouth!
with higher temperature richer body with a slight bitterness which is appealing
Spring in the cup. A happy and curious tea.
Nice deepening effects.
