Now people may ask where does this glutinous/sticky rice scent in the tea come from? How can you add sticky rice to a tea blend? Fortunately, no grain of rice was harmed during the making of this tea. The secret to the glutinous rice aroma comes from this local herb called Kauk Nyin Mhwe Ywet (Semnostachya Menglaensis), literally named after its distinctive
glutinous rice scent. This blend is made from carefully mixing and roasting the glutinous rice scented herb with our high-grade tea so that it brings out that characteristic starchy sweet aroma. Looking close into that slighty reddish tea in the cup, you may some greenish-white leaves tangled with the tea leaves. That’s in fact the Kauk Nyin Mhwe herb.
