Young Hyson Loose Tea


Young Hyson tea was highly prized by the colonial Americans and tax on hyson was higher than for other teas.  During the Boston Tea Party there were 70 chests of Hyson destroyed. This green tea is made from young leaves that are thinly rolled to have a long, twisted appearance that unfurls when brewed. Enjoy this brew’s full-bodied, warm, plum-like tones and spring-like flavor.
