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.

This was the first tea I bought from Yunnan Sourcing that was not actually grown in Yunnan province. I was a bit reluctant to order it, but also curious, because this company has been so consistently good at everything they sell, both in terms of price and quality. This tea turned out to be a little less interesting th...

This is one of those teas that I love and could drink every day, but when I've served it to others, I found it doesn't appeal to as wide an audience, especially among those with Western tastes. People who like more "serious" Chinese teas like it, it but a lot of people either find it boring or are put-off by the astrin...

Prepared tea from 8 g, coarsely ground, of a 357 g cake. Used 18 oz boiled water and brewed for 6 min; added 4 oz ice. Final = 2.9 g/8 oz. The tea had a strong earthy flavor, not acidic or astringent, and no mushroom flavor like some Pu-erhs. Very full bodied, and great taste! The tea liquor is black, which is why ...

Picture of Big Snow Mountain of Mengku Black Tea

I found this tea absolutely delightful. I continue to be impressed with Yunnan Sourcing, ordering one top-notch tea after another, all reasonably priced.

The dry leaf has the most amazing aroma of any tea I've sampled over the past couple years. It's both strong and complex, floral, malty, spicy, and lightly smoky a...

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...
