This tasty selection is composed of cooked puerh (pronounced POO-ar) scented with an herb ( Nuo Mi Xiang) that tastes just like aromatic sticky rice. The resulting flavor is smooth, earthy, and very pleasant. Tea tasters have described it as "mushroomy". The rice scent makes this tuocha a great flavor accompaniment to a hearty meal.

ICED TEA INSTRUCTIONS:
Though we don't necessarily recommend drinking Sticky Rice Scented Mini Tuocha iced, our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy! The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
