From TeaSource

This a combination of classic shu puer with a widely used Chinese herb called Nuo Mi Xiang, which gives this tea the flavor of “sticky rice” – a delicacy known in Asian restaurants around the world. The cup is smooth, rich, slightly sweet, and earthy. This tea is pressed into small heart shaped, foil-wrapped pieces (5 grams). One piece per large mug or small pot.

Samurai TTB #50

I have yet to develop an appreciation for puerh. However, I do love sticky rice! And this little heart-shaped cakes were so adorable, I just had to give this one a try. And honestly, it was a pleasant surprise! The tea is a bit earthy, but it’s not musty or fishy like others that I’ve tried. The sticky rice really comes through in both the aroma and flavor and I love the unique umami flavor it gives to the tea. My only complaint is that I did find the aftertaste a bit drying to my throat. This probably isn’t something I’d purchase, but it was really fun to get to try it!

I’m the same with pu’erh — I want to do a deep dive, but it’s just too overwhelming haha! I’m glad this one was tasty!

Maybe someday! :)

I haven’t warmed up to plain puerh either, but do like it in certain blends, including this one. The “Dark Rose” hearts from TeaSource are also some of my favs!

May have to try those! Thanks for the tip.
