Chinese Hyson green tea originates from Anhui province in China. This green tea was so highly favored in the 18th century that the British Tea Tax was higher for this particular variety over all other origins. Hy-son translates to “Flourishing Spring” and these particular varietals impart the fresh green character you would expect to be a part of any springtime experience.
This young Hyson tea is a highly graded tea and is sure to meet your expectations with a full body and smooth greenish tasting liquor. This tea is harvested before the rains and carries a delicious earthy, sunny flavor. Hyson green tea is best boiled at a water temperature of less than 180F degrees. Steeping too long or in too hot of water can cause bitterness. Use only one teaspoon per 6oz cup of water.
Served hot it typically doesn’t require milk or sugar however; it is also excellent served cold and is delightful with a garnish of lemon or a twist of lime. The health benefits of this green tea are exceptional. Scientific evidence shows us that Green Tea has been clinically proven to lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, aid digestion, fight fatigue, preserve younger-looking skin, and promote oral health.

Asians have been experiencing the health benefits of Green Tea for ages.
