This tea not only has the sweet and long-lasting flavor of quality shu puer, but also the rich yet refreshing sticky rice aroma from the blended nuo mi xiang herb. This blend is commonly used by the local ethnic minorities in Jingmai, including the Dai, Bulang, and Yi as an herbal remedy for helping digestion. The Jingmai Mountain area has a tradition of harvesting both tea and forest herbs at the same time. Some suggest the idea for this blend came out of this tradition.
