“If you are interested in Yunnan tea...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

If you are interested in Yunnan tea, especially Pu'er, this is the place to come to sample and to buy. A huge number of establishments are on both sides of the street. Thes are wholesalers, but most will accommodate retail customers as well.

They will brew some tea for you to try and if you like it, you can buy some at good prices. As usual, you need to know how to bargain. It's a low pressure environment.

Also found some stores that sell tea ware 茶具 plus tea trays and such. The vendors are knowledgeable and most like to talk about tea matters. I spent a pleasant morning tasting interesting teas. Wound up buying some.

It's not far from the center of Kunming and you can get there by public bus (plus a short walk) or by taxi.
