Young Hyson Green
A very light Chinese green tea, Young Hyson makes a smooth and delicately sweet flavored cup when brewed. Young Hyson green tea was our first green tea offering decades ago and has quickly become our most popular green tea selection.
This style of tea is prepared from young, thin green tea leaves and has a notably twisted leaf with a pale green hue. Containing less caffeine than traditional black teas, green teas are also high in healthy antioxidants!
Brewing Tips: Our Young Hyson Green tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a boil and then allowed to cool for 1 minute (170-180℉). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Our Young Hyson Green tea should be steeped for 2-3 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
