This oolong was crafted by a third generation oolong tea artisan at an organic farm in the Doi Mae Salong mountain region of northern Thailand. See photos of this origin in our Doi Mae Salong Travelogue.
Sticky Rice Oolong is a traditional style of scented oolong tea made in Southeast Asia. In a technique similar to jasmine tea scenting, the tea artisans pick a local herb that has an amazing aroma reminiscent of sticky rice. The artisans blend the herb alongside the tea leaves during processing to impart the sweet aroma of sticky rice, then remove the herb after scenting. This rare oolong tea's mild sweetness is welcome at any time of day. Use a porcelain gaiwan to brew this tea using multiple brief infusions to savor its evolving flavor profile.



Tasting Notes: Green oolong tea scented with traditional local herbs that impart aromas of sticky rice and sweet baked oats.

This is one of the most interesting and satisfying oolongs I have tasted. The aroma is warm and welcoming like a bowl of hot cereal, the flavor is hard to describe, but let's just say you can taste "sticky rice".

It's closer to a green tea than some Oolongs. I didn't really notice the sticky rice taste all that much; pretty subtle. But it's a nice tea and I got four good steeps out of my first couple tablespoons.
