Sticky Rice Shu Pu'er (糯米香熟普洱, Nuò Mǐ Xiāng Shú Pǔ'ěr, "Sticky Rice Fragrance Ripened Pu'er") - This traditional style of scented Pu'er is popular with the Báizú 白族 ("Bai Ethnicity") minority peoples of Yunnan. Starting with high quality xiǎo duī zi 小堆子 ("small-pile") fermented Pu'er leaves from Nannuo Mountain, the tea is scented with the leaves of Nuò Mǐ Xiāng, an herb with a sweet cereal fragrance reminiscent of fresh cooked glutinous rice. The herb is said to aid in digestion, and complements the rich earthy character of Nannuo Shu Pu'er. It produces a dark, red-brown infusion combining the loamy depth of Shu with the pleasant toasted grain aroma of the sticky rice fragrance plant, set against a background of characteristic Nannuo Mountain minerality.
