(China, Green) This tea also known as Lucky Dragon Tea comes from the Anhui province of China. Prepared using young leaves which are made into thin, twisted leaves. It has more body than most green tea and is more pungent. The name Hyson is likely a Chinese name meaning "flourishing spring". However, some believe it was named after an English tea merchant, Phillip Hyson. Another fun fact, 15 chests of this tea were thrown into the Boston Harbor during the Boston Tea Party.
