Sticky Rice Puerh Tuo Cha (Shu)Description:

A twist on the traditional compressed style of dark tea from Yunnan Province China, our shu (cooked) sticky rice puerh really does have the aroma and taste of sticky rice coupled with earthy notes of cooked puerh. Each tuo cha piece is the perfect size for western size mugs. Good for 3-4 infusions for prolonged enjoyment. The unique aroma and taste in this puerh comes from Nuo Mi Xiang Nen Ye, an herb found in the Yunnan province of China.

Each tuo cha is is individually wrapped in gold foil and weighs approximately 5.5 to 6 grams.

  • Exactly What I Was Looking For

    This is one of my favorite teas. My local tea shop closed down a few months ago and I was so disappointed when I ran out of these and could not find a reliable source for more. These are the real deal, exactly as described and nearly identical to what I've grown used to. Thank you for the prompt shipping and high quality tea!

    I've been sampling several Chinese teas and this one stands out as the most tasty, the one I'll be ordering in volume. Yes, a hint of rice flavor came through and made this tea smoother and more - Oh, I don't know, Chinese? - than the other straight fermented teas. At least give it a sample.

    tastes exactly as it is advertised; a perfect combination of fermented puerh and sticky rice (Nuo Mi Xiang Nen Ye herb). Flavor remains until 4th/5th steep. Recommend steeping first 2:30 minutes, then add a minute for each steep afterwards.
