China Young Hyson


There are various names for Young Hyson like Chun Mee or Precious Eyebrow Tea.  The tea is produced in the south-west of China where the leaves are harvested shortly before the spring monsoon.  The production of Young Hyson requires a lot of experience as the tea is lightly rolled by hand to obtain its special shape.  The tea itself has a yellow golden colour and a soft but distinctive tangy taste.
