Sticky Rice Puerh Tuocha
Sticky Rice Puerh Tuocha is premium puerh tea with a distinctly sticky rice taste. This sticky rice puerh tea blend is like nothing you’ve ever tasted in a tea. Sticky Rice Puerh has a rich, nutty, sweet flavor and is hugely aromatic. Rich rice aroma and taste are balanced and delicious in the cup. The underlying puerh brings an earthy, base flavor in which to carry the rice notes. That sticky rice flavor comes from an herb blended with this puerh tea that smells and tastes like sticky rice.
Brewing Stick Rice
Brew this tea and you’ll find it makes your whole house smell like sticky rice. It’s delicious and popular and one of the best puerhs that we carry. Rather than loose leaf, this puerh is compressed. It comes in small buttons or nests wrapped in paper. You must remove the paper before brewing. The nests are approximately 5 grams, which is a perfect amount for steeping 2 cups of tea. As the nest steeps, it gradually decompresses and takes the shape of loose leaf 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 the region of 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 that we now refer to as dark tea, or puerh, depending on its origin location.
