About Young Hyson

Small Green Tea Leaves
Young Hyson
from Upton Tea
Young hyson, sometimes called lucky dragon tea, is a style of green tea. Hyson tea originated in China in Anhui province. Young hyson is hyson tea that is harvested earlier in the season. According to Babelcarp, the name "Hyson" is a corruption of Xi Chun(熙春), which translates to splendid springtime.

The name "young hyson" is sometimes used interchangeably with chun mee. Chun mee is the highest and most well-known grade of young hyson. The lower grades of young hyson tea, as well as the other types of hyson tea besides young hyson, are infrequently available under their own name in the U.S. market: when they are sold or used in blends, they tend not to be identified.

Young hyson and chun mee are now produced in many Chinese provinces other than Anhui, and are even produced outside of China.
