WHY THE PRICE HIKE?
With inflation and cost of living increases, tea farmers sometime have no choice but to increase their prices to cover their costs. The teas we source aren't commodities. They're a product of skill, hard work and dedication, and out of respect to our tea producing partners, we pay their asking price.
WHY THE NAME?
The story goes, back in the day, when the farmers in the mountains of Chao Zhou first discovered this cultivar, they were amazed by the natural floral aromas and depth of flavour of this tea. As the soil that the tea was growing in was known as “duck poo soil” due to its yellow colour, and also, to deter any curious passers-by from stealing any of these special plants, the farmers named this type of Dancong “duck poo fragrance”, aka ya shi xiang (鴨屎香).
Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
