Our Boston tea merchant opened their doors in 1904. Young Hyson was one of their first green teas. It quickly became a favorite and has remained so. Young delicate thin leaves are selected during preparation, each becoming notably twisted with a pale green hue. The tea is delicious! Fresh, pungent, green-grassy flavors intertwined with a pleasant sweetness emerge from the golden liquor. A delicate lingering finish beckons another sip of Young Hyson. Terrific hot or brewed for iced tea, a perfect option for our current temperature swings.
We recommend using one teaspoon of Young Hyson per 8 oz. cup. Steep for 4 minutes with water heated to 195° F.
