This raw (green) version of a classic Sticky Rice Pu-erh is not nearly as well-known as the cooked version, but it has its devotees. Sun-dried green tea leaves from the Yunnan province in southern China are blended with the Nuo Mi Xiang herb, a plant native to Yunnan that imparts a taste similar to Chinese sticky rice, a traditional dish widely known throughout the world. The tea is compressed in the shape of a mini bird’s nest or bowl shape (tuo cha) and then wrapped in rice paper.

This raw pu-erh has a unique lingering, complex bitterness with pleasant nuances of sweet-smelling sticky rice. Properly stored, raw pu-erhs will mellow over time, but many pu-erh aficionados prefer the strength, bitterness, and bright notes of younger green (raw) pu-erhs.

We carry two kinds of Sticky Rice Pu-erh tea, Raw (sheng) and Cooked (shou). Find the cooked version of our Sticky Rice Pu-erh tea here!

Steeping Instructions
Unwrap a tuo cha (mini bird’s nest) and place it in an infuser. We recommend using one nest for every 16 ounces water. Heat the water to 170-180 °F. Give the tea leave a quick rinse with a small amount of hot water from the kettle. Pour that water out and then pour fresh hot water over the tea leaves and steep for 1-3 minutes; the longer the steep, the deeper the rich, complex bitterness in the tea’s flavor. Remove the infuser and enjoy! If desired, you may re-steep the tea leaves multiple times during the day to experience more nuances of flavor.

Sticky Rice Pu-erh Tuo Cha Un-Cooked

I love this tea! It has surpassed all other teas I've tried; including your Chai!

If you like to drink black coffee straight, then this pu-ehr is for you.

As mentioned in the descriptive, this tea does have a slight bitterness to it. It's good tea, but compared to the cooked & plain, i prefer those hands down! And like all the pu-erh lil' black bowls, you can infuse it like 4-5 times & it will still have flavor, so It's worth the price. I stick it in the fridge until next morning to use again & amazingly, it's still tasty to reseep. I wish all the plain teas were squished into cute lil' bowls, it makes it so much easier w/o using a measuring spoon. For all the pu-erhs, i used 190 degrees, 3min per seep. AND thk goodness i bought 2 bags worth of the cooked pu-erh b/c Stash is out of stock for now. I wouldn't rebuy this raw, but cooked one, yes!
