Sometimes we add a recipe to our catalogue not only because it is delicious but also because it pairs beautifully with one of our teas.  Such is the case with this beautiful sweet sticky rice cake which is infused with the distinctive taste of kaffir lime leaves and pairs magnificently with our jasmine pearl green tea.   It is also a great option for those times you need the perfect gluten free sweet treat.

300 ml (1¼ cups) coconut milk
