“George Washington’s Favorite” | Chun Mee Style | Curly Leaves | Appreciated already by George Washington, this Chun Mee-Style ‘Young Hyson’ Rolled Leaf Tea was 200 years ago ‘by mistake’ named after an English tea merchant from London. Its real name is YU TSIEN [before the rains] and refers to the early spring plucking period; the time when the finest and tender leafs are harvested.
This ‘Hyson’ is very economical and mild in flavor.
History shows that the ‘Hyson’ leaf was already favored by George Washington as a fine Cup Of Tea.
