Commercial Description

These tuocha smell exactly like sticky rice. They taste like it too. This tea is a wonderful alternative to Japanese Genmaicha (Roasted Rice Green Tea). These tuocha are made from green pu-erh and were manufactured in 2004. The distinct sticky rice smell and taste comes from a Chinese herb known as Nuomixiang. The tea is stored for several months with the herb before being processed into tuocha form.

This might be the most peculiar tea I have ever tasted. I received it with a mixture of flavored Sheng and Shu Pu Erh Tuochas and had to try it first because I love sticky rice as a food. The aroma is mostly sweet sticky rice with a slightly fishy undertone from the Pu Erh. The taste is so unusual!!! You can taste the sweet sticky rice and very subtle and earthy Pu Erh, it certainly takes a few sips before you get familiar with the strangeness of this tea. It is odd how it can be both very rich and almost overpowering and at the same time very light and refreshing.

I recommend this tea for anyone who wants a new tea experience.

Good tea, very strange though. It smelled and tasted like Sticky Rice throughout the 7 infusions that I steeped. I'm not sure if I am a big fan of that sticky rice flavor, so I can only see myself drinking this tea every once in a while. Regardless, it was a cool find and an interesting tea to come across.
