Sticky Rice Sheng Pu'er (糯米香生茶, Nuò Mǐ Xiāng Shēng Chá, "Sticky Rice Fragrance Sheng Tea") - This traditional style of scented Sheng Pu'er is popular with the Báizú 白族 ("Bai Ethnicity") minority peoples of Yunnan. Starting with high quality Sheng (unfermented) 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 it tempers the sometimes astringent quality of the fresh Sheng Pu'er. It produces a pale green-gold infusion combining the floral fragrance of Sheng Pu'er with the pleasant toasted grain aroma of the sticky rice fragrance plant, set against a background of characteristic Nannuo Mountain minerality.

This tea is everyone's favorite when it comes to my friends and household. I always love a good sheng pu'er, but I know it's not for everyone- except for this one. Everyone I have served this tea to is blown away and asks me where they can get it. It has the good vibes of sheng with the delicious sweetness of sticky rice. What more could you ask for?
