Sticky Rice Puerh

Continue Shopping or Checkout

The wait is over!  We are so excited to finally have these cakes in our hands (and cups).  This shou Puerh comes from the Ai Lao Mountains and is delicious by itself, but its real treat is the herbs mixed into the leaves.  The leaves of Nuo Mi Xiang (Semnostachya Menglaensis) literally translate to "Sticky Rice Aroma", and for a reason: they give off an aroma uncannily similar to sticky rice.  Combined with the Puerh leaves, the combination is deep but uplifting, sweet yet earthen, and steeps over and over again.  The liquor is a clean deep red which will keep you going for 8+ gongfu steeps.  Each cake has 100g of tea, pressed loosely enough to not require a pick to break it up.  

Origin: Simao, Yunnan
Harvest: 2021
