Young Hyson Green Chinese Loose Leaf Tea Healthy Living and Great Taste


  • In the 17th and 18th centuries, teas exported from China were predominantly green.
  • They were called curious names, most of which have now disappeared, such as Young Hyson, Bing, Caper, and Twankey, (after which Gilbert and Sullivan’s Widow Twankey was named)
  • .Hyson is a Chinese description meaning before the rains and refers to the time when the new shoots are picked.
  • This Young Hyson Green Tea is very similar to Chun Mee and Gunpowder in both its looks and taste. It is slightly smoother than the Chun Mee and has a slightly less smoky note than the Gunpowder.
  • A very rare and unusual China green tea is well worth drinking not only for its refreshing taste but also for the beneficial effects on your health.
  • You will receive 85 grams of tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make at least 42 cups of tea. Two grams per cup, you could re-infuse the tea a couple of times.
  • This is under twelve pence per cup. Fantastic Value.
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout
