Description

Organic Lucky Dragon Hyson

Hyson translates to ‘Flourishing Spring’ and this particular variety impacts the fresh green character you would expect to  be part of any springtime tea. Traditionally hyson referred to old to medium tea leaves manufactured in a rolled long twisted and sometimes almost clam shape. The term ‘young’ was added to the nomenclature to distinguish that the was made from young leaves and therefore better quality and better tasting.

Long Island has been famous for its strawberries for as long as people have lived there. Books tell of people going on picnics and hikes to pick wild strawberries as far back as the 1850s. Records show Native Americans who inhabited the are centuries ago were also fond of the fruit. After the Civil War, farming on Long Island developed rapidly, seeing strawberries being cultivated commercially for the first time. The popularity of the fresh fruit grew quickly and as suburbs and cars grew in prominence, roadside fruit stands began to pop up.
