As soon as I was on winter vacation when I was a child, I would start looking forward to the Chinese New Year.
Cleaning up, buying New Year’s goods, posting Spring Festival couplets, worshiping God, preparing New Year’s Eve dinner, paying New Year’s greetings, getting lucky money... Usually at night, parents will drive them to bed, but on New Year’s Eve, they can stay up until twelve o’clock to set off fireworks. The family sits together, watching TV, no one is using their mobile phone to check WeChat, just drinking tea in a leisurely manner, gossiping about family affairs. Now, I eat a lot of things, and I am dazzled, because these things are usually available, but I have lost the novelty of my childhood.
Only one thing is getting heavier and heavier - tea.
Speaking of the fate with tea, it is particularly important during the Chinese New Year: make a cup of heart-warming tea for parents, present a healthy tea gift to relatives and friends, and look out the window with the family and the warm sunshine The evergreen camphor tree is like spring, chatting in the fragrance of tea, talking about the life and interesting things that each other missed this year.
Time seems to be extremely long, but also fleeting. I just want to cherish this warm holiday tea time with my parents forever.
Today Tongxinshe Tea House will share with you the first tea in 2023 "Pingkengtou Village Old Bush Duck Shit Dan Cong"
Speaking of Fenghuang Dancong, it is inseparable from the evaluation of "perfume in tea". This label can be seen in many publicity about Fenghuang Dancong. Its aroma is more prominent among many teas. As one of the oolong tea varieties, it not only has a high aroma, but also has a rich aroma, which is so rich that it is dazzling, so that many local tea farmers are often confused, not to mention how many there are. Old tea drinkers can drink it all.
Among so many fragrance types, "Duck Shit Dan Cong" attracts the most attention and has become the mainstay of Fenghuang Dancong. Why is it called Duck Shit Dan Cong? This is the question that every tea lover will have when they see it .
At present, the most official version of the source of the name is that tea farmers bred this tea. Because the aroma and taste are particularly good, in order to prevent people from randomly picking branches, they lied that this tea is not fragrant and smells like duck droppings. However, the quality is indeed good, and it will soon It was promoted, and the name came from it.
The birthplace of Duck Shit Dan Cong is in Pingkengtou Village, Fengxi, Chaozhou, but you must not know that the mother tree of Duck Shit Dan Cong is no longer there, so there is no such thing as a mother tree in this world. It was around the 1950s to the early 1960s. Looking back in time, there are almost no duck droppings that are hundreds of years old, let alone ancient trees. If you see product promotions with words such as century-old bush duck dung incense, ancient tree duck dung incense, etc., just give up buying.
Of course, Old Bush Duck Shit, which is 50 or 60 years old, can also be called Old Bush.
In May 2014, Duck Shit Dan Cong was renamed "Yinhuaxiang" because of its unrefined name in the production area. It is said that the aroma is similar to the wild honeysuckle on Phoenix Mountain. But in reality, "Duck Shit Dan Cong" has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and tea drinkers have not changed accordingly. They still like to call it "Duck Shit Dan Cong". If you want to mention Yinhuaxiang to others, many people will shake their heads. .
It is not just the name of the tea that is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people. After all, drinking tea must be eaten, and the taste speaks for itself. The aroma of Duck Shit Dan Cong is very attractive. The aroma is mainly orchid or gardenia. The prepared Duck Shit Dan Cong has a soft milky aroma, hazelnut aroma, very layered, and a good duck shit aroma , Even after drinking a cup, you can clearly feel the lingering fragrance on your teeth and cheeks while talking. The contrast between the name and the aroma and taste, only those who have drunk it will know its surprise. Among the many fragrance types of Fenghuang Dancong, duck feces fragrance cannot be said to be the most prominent and excellent fragrance type, but it is impossible not to mention it when talking about Fenghuang Dancong.
If you have never had Phoenix Dan Cong, starting with Duck Shit Dan Cong is a good introduction. If you are a fan of Dan Cong, I believe that you cannot do without Duck Shit Dan Cong in your daily fragrance selection.
