Young Hyson Green Tea is a Chinese tea that is made from young leaves that are thinly rolled to have a long, twisted appearance that unfurls when brewed. Hyson tea has been described as light, warm, smooth, good-bodied, earthy, sunny, and spring-like in flavor. It can be served hot or iced. Milk and sugar are not typically added and are thought to diminish the flavor of hyson tea; however, cold hyson tea is often garnished with lime or lemon. We love this versatile variety of green tea.
