Young Hyson green tea is made from young to medium leaves in a long twisted style, and it is considered high quality. It is harvested earlier, "before the rains," has a full-bodied, pungent taste, and is golden in color.
The fresh, green, full-bodied bouquet of Young Hyson Tea is wonderful year-round. Enjoy hot or iced, maybe with a bit of honey, ginger, or lemon.
As for historical and literary references, this variety of tea was highly prized by the 18th century British, causing the tea tax on Hyson Tea to be higher than for other teas, and during the Boston Tea Party, hyson tea represented 15 of the more than 300 chests of tea that were destroyed. In literature, the virtues of hyson are memorialized in the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Charles Lamb.
