What gives this pu-erh its unique sticky rice notes?
The secret lies in a special herb found only in the forests of Yunnan, China. Named Nuomixiang, which means sticky rice in English, this wild herb has an aroma reminiscent of glutinous rice dessert or pandan leaves. Producers add broken pieces of Nuomixiang to cooked Pu'er tea before pressing it—creating a delicious flavor that’s both creamy and sweet.
The production process for Pu'er tea with glutinous rice fragrance is quite simple; once the raw materials are collected from Xishuangbanna’s forests, producers will sort through the leaves and select only highest quality leaves. These leaves are then cooked using a specific temperature for a predetermined amount of time before being added to cooked Pu-erh tea. This mixture is then pressed into cakes or bricks using traditional techniques before being sold on the market.
Nuomixiang (sticky rice) is one of those rare ingredients that can truly transform an ordinary dish into something extraordinary. Its unique aroma provides an unforgettable experience for anyone who enjoys its distinctive flavor. Not only does it add depth and complexity to Pu'er tea but its delicate sweetness also provides a pleasant contrast to other flavors in the mix. If you're looking for something new to try in your next cup of Pu'er tea, give this sticky rice puerh a try—you won't regret it!
