I liked this waaaay better than I thought I would, but I had to try it because the smell coming from the bag was way too enticing- exactly like cooking sticky rice! This has been my “learn to knit” tea for the past two nights at Dinosara ’s house, and it has served admirably. Total, we have gotten 25+ steeps (pour water in gaiwan, and immediately pour tea out of gaiwan), and I will continue with it at work today, because it had reached a really good point.
The first steep (after a rinse) itself tasted just like sticky rice, with just a touch of what was to come. The second steep was super bitter and difficult to drink, and I think this was the point at which we bumped the brew time down from 10 seconds to as-fast-as-you-can-, which greatly improved it. Around steep 6 or 7 the bitterness calmed down and the sticky rice flavor came back in force. It gave the the sense of being warm and toasty- the smell of cooking rice and the warmth of the tea was very comforting, and at this point I decide I liked this experience! We probably got around 20 steeps out of this the first day and put it in a tupperware in the fridge overnight.
Day 2 with this tea saw me learning how to stitch a purl, and not only had my knitting improved, but this tea had, greatly, as well! The sticky rice was smooth and present, and dare I say the liquor was sweet! It left my mouth with an almost minty feeling… maybe like how vics vaporub feels in your nose, but in my mouth? I super pleasant experience and worth continuing, even though we took a break from this tea after maybe 6-7 steeps today to enjoy a lovely tieguanyin. I will keep going with it today at work, because the leaves clearly had more to give.
Note: do not let the tea in your cup cool down. The bitterness comes back quite strongly if you wait to drink your tea!
Thank you very much LiquidProust, I have certainly enjoyed this new experience!

I’m sure this might have sparked more interest to try the mini jasmine sheng :)
Glad you enjoyed the tea and wow… all the steeps!

I have only had sticky rice shu, but never green. Did you know it is an herb that makes it taste like rice? I think that is so cool. How can an herb taste JUST LIKE cooked rice?

Equusfell

Liquid Proust- Yes! I’m so glad I have two of each kind! Remind me what the name/brand of the jasmine one is? Also, we need to get you a gaiwan, so you too can enjoy many steeps! I got another 5 out of it this morning before I wanted something else!
Ashmanra- no! I didn’t know that! I was wondering how the heck the got that flavor to persist over so many steeps!

The brand is on the wrapper :)
I believe it is the only roman letters on the entire thing.
Earlier this week I got Piao Teapot in the mail as a gift from my parents and since then my pu’erh steeping has been the best ever :)

This tea makes me hungry… the smell is absolutely wonderful, stick rice indeed!
The first steep is bit strong, but this can be brewed quite a few times. I really like when the tea is somewhat milder and the rice taste/smell blends in with it to make a wonderful cup of tea that makes your senses a little annoyed as you smell food but drink liquid. As for taste its quite good. The green tea may be somewhat strong but that is what is to be expected from a green pu erh.
