As the core area of the origin of tea plants in the world, Yunnan is also the origin of some kinds of famous tea such as the Dianhong black tea and the caffeine-free Puerh tea. The tea industry is one of the traditional, characteristic industries in Yunnan Province, and the large-scale industry is widely developed in most parts of the province.

With a long history of tea plantation, Yunnan has a profound tea culture that is deeply integrated with the local ethnic culture. In 2015, Yunnan realised a total tea plantation of 425,000 hectares, with a total output of 36,5800 tonnes worth 62.3 billion RMB (9.45 billion USD). 

Since 2006, the Tea Expo is annually held in Kunming, and tea professionals, traders, travellers, and citizens attend or buy teas. The Tea Expo has become an important platform to display the tea industry of Yunnan.
