From Yunnan Sourcing

Nuo Mi Xiang (糯米香 Semnostachya menglaensis H. P. Tsui) is the Chinese name for Sticky Rice Herb. Nuo Mi Xiang is a natural herb that grows in Yunnan and has been mixed in a very small ratio with our premium 2013 ripe pu-erh tea to impart a sweet and glutinous rice taste to the tea. There are many grades of this Sticky Rice Scent herb and we have selected the highest most potent grade available! Combined with the high quality ripe pu-erh tea we used makes this little cake a delightful and unique experience!

Something shared with me by TheWeekendSessions!

I’m a bit perplexed by this one – I tossed a small lump of the sample Micah gave me into a Nordic Mug and drank it Grandpa style over an afternoon at the start of the week, and I found the sticky rice notes very defined, smooth and deeply comforting. As a fan of that note in teas, in particular in Sticky Rice Oolong, I really loved the taste. However, the shou itself was really flat/boring to me and I would have appreciated a deeper flavour from it in pretty well any regard. As it stand, this was incredibly silky and easy to sip without any funk/bitterness/astringency to be found AT ALL – but just a bit boring, and too “one note”.

Micah generously gave me lots of this to play with – so we’ll see if it’s perhaps more interesting when brewed Gongfu.
