I guess it's all in the name...
LiHO Singapore selling duck shit tea that's not supposed to taste like duck shit
https://mothership.sg/2022/01/liho-duck-shit-tea/The term comes from its Chinese name 鴨屎香 (ya shi xiang), which literally translates to "duck shit fragrance."
Legend has it the farmer who discovered or invented the tea deliberately chose an unappealing name to hide his secret gains.
Despite the name, the tea "tastes and smells nothing like duck shit." We'll have to take their word for it.
It's a variety of oolong that's lightly roasted, with floral and musky notes.
The tea leaves are half fermented and when brewed, produces a clear yellow-orange tea.
