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. This tea has a rich, nutty, sweet flavor and is hugely aromatic. The 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. Rather than loose-leaf, this puerh is compressed. It comes in small buttons or nests wrapped in paper. 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 brewed loose-leaf tea.

A few facts about puerh tea

  • often referred to as a hangover tea
  • can help with digestion
  • has less caffeine than black tea, because older leaves are used to process into puerh
  • is probiotic
  • the only tea actually fermented
  • is a diuretic
  • may help curb your appetite

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.

    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!

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

We are major tea snobs and I was absolutely delighted by this store. There are the usual suspects as well as shelves of unique, hand-picked teas. Highly recommend the Golden Snail :) It was really special being able to try whatever tea I wanted before buying. I'm looking forward to subscribing to their tea club. I would love to come back: everything was delicious.
