A velvety smooth and fragrant tea with the comforting taste of sticky rice and rice milk, this Thai oolong is reminiscent of savory-sweet homemade Southeast Asian desserts—without the added sugar. Recommended for fans of Jin Xuan oolong tea—also called #12—which originated in Taiwan.

    Really enjoying these tea leaves!! Adding honey and oat milk to the tea actually makes it taste very similar to vietnamese soy milk (sua dau nanh) which is very nostalgic for me

    Glad it’s back

    This tea incorporates aroma and taste very well. The aroma from the sticky rice in this tea reminds me of suman, a dessert that would be at every family gathering.

    Love this tea! It’s toasty, richly flavored and light all at the same time.

    My current obsession!

    The sweet rice oolong has to be one of my favorites at the moment. The sweet, comforting smell of rice in the room and on my palate always feels like im being hugged by each sip. Its weird, but because of this nostalgic feeling, i only drink it at home or when i have extra time to sit and enjoy each steep. Please never discontinue this flavor, Paru family! THANK YOU for all the hard work that you guys put in!

    So refreshing

    This tea offering from Paru was so good. Very refreshing and light. The natural sweetness of the tea does remind me a bit of mochi. I would highly recommend this tea.
