Tea of the Week - Swallow's Cave Wuyi Rock Oolong

Pu-erh Tea

Puerh tea originates from Yunnan province, dating back to the 4th century. It has dynamic terroir and flavor profiles, a complex aging process, and has attributes similar to fine wine. Puerh tea has two subcategories, raw puerh (sheng puerh in Chinese) and cooked/ripened puerh (shu puerh). We curate a great selection, from first year to well-aged puerh, from famous tea growing mountains such as Jing Mai, Bing Dao, Yi Wu, and Meng Hai, traveling as far as the Chinese borders with Laos and Myanmar. 

Puerh tea also has great health benefits, especially in aiding digestion, weight control, and lowering blood pressure and cholesterol.
