Sticky Rice Puerh Tuocha is premium puerh tea, with a distinctly sticky rice taste and like nothing you’ve ever tasted in a tea. It boasts a rich, nutty, sweet, and hugely aromatic flavor. The rice aroma and taste balance each other in the cup. The underlying puerh brings an earthy base flavor to carry the rice notes. The sticky rice flavor comes from an herb that smells and tastes like sticky rice.

Brewing Sticky Rice

Brew this tea, and your whole house will smell like sticky rice. This compressed puerh comes in small buttons, or nests, wrapped in paper. Remove the paper before brewing. The nests weigh approximately 5 grams, which will brew 16 oz of tea. As the nest steeps, it gradually decompresses and takes the shape of brewed loose-leaf tea.

A few facts about puerh tea

  • often referred to as a hangover tea

Horse tea trade route

While puerh is in the class of dark tea, which is aged Chinese tea, puerh tea must come from the southern region of Yunnan, China. Puerh tea has its origins in the horse tea trade route, where people in Yunnan would trade tea for horses with the surrounding countries. The tea compressed and aged as it was routed through the mountains. It took on the form of tea, which we now refer to as dark tea, or puerh, depending on its origin location.

  1. The puerh that got me started down the puerh rabbit hole. This tea will truly make your entire room smell wonderful as it brews. Not to mention being a delight to drink. A favorite in the colder months, but just as good all year. It has a full body that grows the longer you steep and I adore that one cake is enough for one very large mug or two of my glass VIVA single cup brews.

    I have since tried (and loved) many other puerhs but this is one I never let myself run out of because it is my most regularly used.

  2. I learned about puerh tea from this tea shop, and it’s become my absolute favorite morning drink and I’ve come to enjoy it more than coffee. In my goal to slowly try all of the different puerh teas that LMTC has to offer, I keep coming back to this one as my favorite. The sticky rice aroma is lovely. The flavor is nutty and a little sweet (again notes of sticky rice!). I love the little nests for portioning out the right amount of tea, and I find for my habits one nest steeped and re-steeped throughout the morning is the perfect amount for me. This tea is very tasty and special!

  3. Oh my, this tea is delicious! It is creamy & nutty & is like nothing I’ve ever tasted before. And the smell!! This will definitely be on repeat for me.

Best store in Montana possibly in all of the United States. I don't know. This is the first Gong Fu tea shop I've ever been to. I came in for a matcha whisk because I donated mine to a museum. Before I left a random customer who was introduced to me as a regular bought me tea. I hugged him which isn't something I normally do. But I was incredibly thankful. Then the man behind the counter gave me a free sample. I went in looking for a simple tool and left with tea and a happy spirit. I am looking forward to making it back as soon as possible! I loved it. I think it will always hold a special place in my blood pumping organ.

This atmosphere of this shop is so wonderfully cozy and pleasant. The menu has such a nice selection of to-go options and the loose teas to purchase for home brewing are phenomenal and in vast selection. The service was quick and friendly. I came here with my family and we bought many of the different teas to try, as well as some to-go teas. My sister and I really enjoyed their house Chai. It was the perfect amount of spice and tea, like a spicy hug for your soul. I will be recommending this shop to others in the future.

I've been going to Lake Missoula Tea Company for years, and recently have had the privilege of putting some of their tea in my store. The quality of the tea is fantastic, and the blends are delightful. I have also attended one of their tasting / learning events and it was great. I highly recommend their downtown store for meeting with friends, family or even just for a nice place to go and have a cup of perfectly brewed tea.

Amazing variety great prices and they'll brew top shelf teas you may be reluctant to buy before trying for a dollar more. Great selection for Missoula. Friendly knowledgeable staff and beautiful tea sets and accessories

The atmosphere was so relaxing and pleasant I could stay there all day! The staff are super helpful and polite and helped me with all my questions (not to mention some helpful tips from patrons as well). The tea they have is top notch and all the selection you could ask for
