About Yunnan Sourcing

Yunnan Sourcing is an online company that specializes in Pu-erh and other Yunnan teas; the company has a huge selection and caters towards connoisseurs and Pu-erh enthusiasts. It carries a small selection of teas other than Pu-erh, with a focus on Yunnan province.

Yunnan Sourcing ships directly from China, which makes their tea prices low but shipping costs high, making them best for placing large purchases. The company also does have a US-based shop, reachable at yunnansourcing.us. The US-based shop has lower shipping costs as the products are already in the US, but their selection is much smaller.

On RateTea, we list teas under the Yunnan Sourcing brand, if they are sold by this company, and do not otherwise have a brand of their own associated with them. However, many of the teas, particularly Pu-erh, are listed instead under the brand name of the Chinese factories that produced them, such as Menghai Tea Factory.

Picture of Teng Chong Hui Long Zhai Yunnan Green Tea

A bold-flavored green tea producing a pale-colored cup with a brisk character. Very enjoyable and easy to brew and drink.

The dry leaf has a tightly curled appearance, a lot like Bi Luo Chun but more irregular. It's very fragrant and strong, grassy and somewhat smoky, with a hint of bready qualities. The smell sugge...

This is one of those really dangerous teas...very caffeinated but incredibly mild and smooth tasting, so it is very easy to brew it too strongly and get uncomfortably wired.

Dry leaf has a potent and very pleasing aroma: strongly malty with cocoa notes, and a faint hint of smoke and vegetal notes. Contrasting with t...

Wow! Exceptional!!!

I've tried a lot of teas from Yunnan Sourcing over the years but have never ordered nor have I reviewed any of them; they were always just served to me by others, often aged Pu-erhs. I finally ordered some of my own and I am super impressed with every one. This is my favorite one of the batch.

The dry leaves still have a little wet pile odor, but fortunately, this doesn't make it into the cup. I mostly taste wood and earthy flavors. My preference with shou is for sweeter notes of cherry, dried fruit, chocolate, vanilla, etc. I'll let this air out for a few weeks and see if it changes, but it's pretty mediocr...

Yunnan Black Gold

Style: Yunnan Gold – Region: Simao, Yunnan, China
Dec. 13th, 2017

Great Yunnan scent. Large leaves. Nice honey colored liquor. Taste is good, a bit mild. I'm sure this will be a great 'all day' tea. Might be a bit mild for milk or cream. Minor problem with I needed to purchase 10 packets to get the full amount I wanted.
