About Rice Puer:

Toasted rice and tea have long been paired together, the popular genmaicha being one example. Rice tends to add a rich, nutty flavor that many people enjoy in a brew. Here we have blended toasted rice with a dark and earthy shou puer.

The processing method for shou puer is sometimes referred to as the Wu-dui (wet piling) style in which the tea is wet and fermented. The resulting brew is thick, smooth, and dark and holds up under many infusions.

Ingredients: Puer tea and toasted rice.

Flavor Profile:

Dark smooth brew with a musky, earthy, and brown rice aroma.
