Puer tea is distinctive for the mild climate where it grows. It has gathered a popular following with its lightly sweet taste and for its noted ability to lower blood pressure and sugar.

 

ZhengYun ChaShe, a shop in the Drum Tower area, offers Puer tea as well as ethnic handcraft from Yunnan Province, where the tea is grown. The owner, Mr. Yao, has been in Puer tea business for 5 years. And inside the shop, he set a tea table to offer free samples to those interested. Prices range from RMB 150 to RMB 800 per gram, depending on the age of the tea.

 

Also, there are ethnic items. Mr. Yao showed me a pair of straw sandal, usually worn in the mountain regions of southern China. It is made of bamboo root, and help avoid slipping while treading on the steep mountain paths. A pair sells around RMB 100. For ladies, he recommended traditional Yi ethnicity cloth-sole shoes, beautifully embroidered, and 100% hand-made. Yi ethnic women often wear these shoes for various occasions. A pair sells around RMB 150.

 

Mr. Yao and his assistants speak a little English. So communication is not a problem.
