Young Hyson – Colonial Collection – Green Tea is a basic China green grade, loose roll (slightly open leaf) having some stems. This tea is nothing short on flavor and truly a great value tea. One of the classic green teas from China enjoyed in England and America for over 300 years.
Young Hyson finds itself in our Colonial Collection due to its popularity during the colonization of our country. As a matter of fact, 15 chests of Young Hyson perished during the famous actions of civil disobedience during the Boston Tea Party!
You will find this tea full-bodied and robust with a slight sweetness.
For another great value green tea with a bit more of a smoky character, try our Gunpowder Tea!
