Young Hyson China Green Tea

One of the classic green teas from China, this classic green tea has been enjoyed in England and America for over 300 years. It was one of the five teas tossed into Boston Harbor in 1773. What a shame because it was a favorite of Thomas Jefferson!
Price: Starting at $10.45
Product Options

This is one of the teas enjoyed by early American colonists. Hyson was tossed overboard in Boston Harbor and drunk by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. This light, fresh green tea produces a green-yellow liquor with a medium body. Healthy, of course. We import ours from Anhui Province.

We private label this tea for the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum where our our owner serves as the museum's tea master.

Steep like a tea professional and never use boiling water on green tea. 165-175F is optimal.

I first dicsovered Young Hyson Green Tea in Williamsburg, Virginia. I purchased two 4 ounce packs to bring home at $10.00 each. I found a pound of the tea on Amazon for less which makes me very happy.
Good choice

Another selection I tried to find the green tea for me. It has a darker color than Davidson tea's with a stronger flavor which I enjoy. price was right with Prime. I brew it through my coffee maker with no problem.
