To speak about the source of the Duck Shit Aroma and Da Wu Ye Dan Cong Oolong Tea, it may thanks to Mr. Li, who comes from Chaozhou, Guangdong, and met Angel at a tea expo. He heard that Angel was looking for good teas, so he recommended several floral Dan Cong Oolongs.

Meanwhile, he is also dedicate to finding tea friends, and recommends them his most natural and authentic Dan Cong Oolong.

This is an interesting tea. The experience of the tea is more to be found in the aroma and aftertaste rather than in the taste of the tea itself. I found the flavor to be extremely mild, but the experience of the tea to be rich. It's as if the taste of the tea and the experience of the tea are at odds with each other in their intensity.
