    This convenient tuocha is pressed in 3g quantities to reflect Xingyang’s preferred brew method of less leaf, cooler water and long steep times to bring out the rich texture in their tea. This tuocha uses Xingyang’s special Gong Ting leaf material and yields a rich osmanthus sticky rice flavor.


  • 'This reminded us of one of our favorite dishes in southern China, sticky rice cakes soaked in osmanthus syrup and caramelized in a wok. The mouthful was creamy and thick, with a vanilla almond aroma. Supporting the light sticky rice flavor profile, we got a light, citrus zip with a caramelized brown sugar aftertaste.'
