100% Luxury Organic Chinese Green Tea


the tea:

This luxury Lucky Dragon young Hyson Green tea is processed by steaming. ‘Hyson’ translates to‘Flourishing Spring’ and this particular variety imparts the green character you would expect to be a part of any spring time experience. In England with all the associated taxes on tea and ‘young hyson’ being taxed even higher there were all sorts of various schemes done to dodge the taxes in the 1700’s. Servants in upper class homes would dry the used leaves and resell them.

the taste: 

A light and fresh sip with a subtle sweetness left river dancing on the tongue.

the origin:

China (Zhejiang Province)

the Ingredients: 

100% Luxury Green tea. Low in caffeine (around 5-20 mg)

the health: 

High in anti-oxidants.

the brewing:

When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 180°F or 90°C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup let the tea steep for about 3 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment - do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low - add more water, and so on and so on - until the flavor of the tea is exhausted.

the pairing:

Great with most things but helps many on a diet as it is a good detox.
