This is a ‘nostalgia’ tea for me. Its smell takes me back to my childhood, just like freshly steamed rice. At first I was amazed at the smell of it had and then I questioned if I was just biased while tasting it. Then, a friend walked in and asked if I was cooking rice; tea true to its name. If you like nutty flavor and a tea that give a ‘filling’ sensation while you drink this is a tea to try.

It is! at least for me. It has that Sheng Puerh mini ‘kick’ to it but the rice fragrance/flavor is the main star. I usually drink it after a meal. But right before one sets my mood for food because the room smells like rice.

Discovered tea a few years ago and I’ve been exploring ever since. I’m looking forward to keep learning and enjoy tea as I do. Keep learning, those who “know” stop learning and become irrelevant to the world.

I’m adding the scale because I noted that we all use the same system but it doesn’t mean the same to all.(I rate the tea not by how much I ‘like it’ only; there are flavors/scents I don’t like but they are quality and are how they are supposed to be and I rate them as such).

90 – 100: AMAZING. This the tea I feel you should drop whatever you are doing and just enjoy.

80-89: Great tea that I would recommend because they are above ‘average’ tea, they usually posses that ‘something’ extra that separates them from the rest.

70-79: An OK tea, still good quality, taste and smell. For me usually the tea that I have at work for everyday use but I can still appreciate and get me going through my day.

60-69: Average nothing special and quality is not high. The tea you make and don’t worry about the EXACT time of steep because you just want tea.

30-59: The tea you should probably avoid, the tea that you can mostly use for iced tea and ‘hide’ what you don’t like.

1-29: Caveat emptor! I feel sorry for my enemies when they drink this tea. :P
