Young Hyson Tea

young hyson green tea crop

Young Hyson is a type of green tea, defined by how it is processed and the age of its leaves. Off the eastern coast of China, on the island of Taiwan, young green tea leavesare harvested and twisted into long threads. With a name meaning “before the rains,” this tea produces a golden cup that is full-bodied and, due to the young leaves, possessing a hint of natural sweetness.

Steep for 2 minutes in hot (but not boiling) water.
