Puer 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. Puer tea has two subcategories, raw puer (sheng puer in Chinese) and cooked/ripened puer (shu puer). We curate a great selection, from first year to well-aged puer, 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.
Puer tea also has great health benefits, especially in aiding digestion, weight control, and lowering blood pressure and cholesterol.
