From Yunnan Sourcing

What happens when you use Ping Keng Tou “King of Duck Shit” varietal Dan Cong tea leaves and then process them using dehydration to halt oxidation at a very early stage? You get a super green, aromatic and sweet Dan Cong that will astound and impress!

Chou Shi (lit. dehydrate) is a new style of processing Dan Cong that shares some similarity to Anxi Tie Guan Yin. The tea is picked, and before it can wilt it is fried to start kill-green process in motion, the tea is then rolled briefly by hand and then put in a special dehydrator to stop the wilting process entirely. The result is a very green and very aromatic dan cong. The tea also has a very sweet taste, with some vegetal almost Tie Guan Yin like feeling.

I tried the April 2020 harvest. This tea is almost more reminiscent of a jasmine-scented green tea than a dan cong oolong, but milder and less prone to bitterness. It’s extremely floral, for certain. Very pale liquor. It’s closer to green tea than even most anxi oolongs I’ve tried, but it has the depth of a good oolong. It also benefits from a higher temperature brew than I’d use for a green tea. Definitely worth having again!
