Fulfilled by our friends at Tea and Whisk
Whether you're looking to be a little quirky in your life, or you know someone that needs something new and original but still can't resist good tea, this duckshit oolong is just the thing for you. But we warn you - it might just tempt some of your more fashionable friends on a shopping spree with its funky name!
There's an often-told story behind the unappetizing name. They say a famous and successful tea farmer got so fed up with everyone asking about the secret to his masterpiece oolong that he started to make a joke, telling everyone that the secret to his tea was the duck droppings he used as fertilizer for his plants.
This oolong is baked using charcoal twice. The tea is first baked using an oven with a lower temperature (90c) for about 8 hours to remove the water content in the tea leaves. Rest for 3 weeks, and then baked using charcoal for 18 hours with 120c temperature. This tea will taste better when it has been aged for at least 4 to 6 months.
This is not your ordinary oolong tea. It's nutty and addicting like a toasted peanut. Its floral notes are just the perfect amount - you'll want to relax after drinking it, forget about all of life's problems! A rare gem in the world of teas - this duckshit oolong will surely become an instant favorite!
