“Chelidon” is the Greek word for “swallow bird,” the beautiful passerine whose arrival home each March signals the end of deep winter and the beginning of spring. Since ancient times, the swallow has been regarded as a symbol of hope and renewal, particularly by farmers. However, swallows often return home to find their nests ravaged and destroyed by fierce winter storms, and they must quickly set to the task of repairing and rebuilding.

To weary sailors, the swallow is a celebratory sight, signaling that dry land and safety are, at long last, near.

Chelidon blends a rare, handmade Tieguanyin oolong with healing botanicals, such as white mulberry, strawberry leaf, osmanthus flower, and Saint John’s Wort. White mulberry helps slow the breakdown of sugars in the gut so that they are absorbed more slowly into the blood, is used to treat and prevent Type 2 Diabetes. Strawberry leaf is nutrient-dense, and gently tones the digestive tract. Saint John’s Wort gently wakes the liver and lifts the mood from the depressing dregs of winter; and Osmanthus flower tones the stomach while encouraging the loss of winter-accumulated body-fat. Chelidon is rich with vitamins and minerals, particularly Vitamin C, Selenium, Zinc, Iron, Calcium, and Manganese.

Dominate taste notes: orchid, ambrosia honey, and strawberry fields, with tender notes of sweet grass, jasmine, and savory cashew milk.
