What do you do if you discover a tea so delicious, that you want to keep it all for yourself? You call it 'Duck Shit tea' (Ya Shi Xiang). That's what the monk did who first discovered this special tea cultivar in the Phoenix Mountain of Guangdong.

Our Duck Shit tea is a lightly oxidised oolong tea with a honey-sweet and floral aroma and a viscous texture. The taste if refreshing and vibrant, as if you're enjoying a walk in a park on a Sunny Spring day.

Origin of the Name: Duck Shit Oolong

Legend has it that a monk in Ping Keng Tou village discovered a tea cultivar with an extraordinary taste, and sought to keep it a secret. He told villagers that the area's earth being covered with duck droppings. We can't verify whether this story is true or not. However, whatever measures taken to keep the tea just for himself, were ultimately unsuccessful: Duck Shit Oolong has become the most popular tea of the region.

Our design work is inspired by the artwork “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” by the Zhang Zeduan in the Song Dynasty. Instead of displaying the daily lives of people in the capital of China (as the original artwork), we display the tea making process of farmers through the same bird’s eye perspective.

When examining our packaging design in detail, tea enthusiasts will observe the tea making process, featuring tea farmers picking, drying, rolling, and frying tea leaves. The tea is then tasted in a pavilion and transported by horses along the ‘ancient tea road’.

Together, the traditional Chinese landscape and tea making theme, symbolise heritage, tradition, and respect for hard work of tea farmers.
