Smells of grassy/woodsy/mossy/musky type green tea. It tastes of a grassy/mossy type green tea on the verge of bitter but still pretty good. It finishes with a sweeter taste. Not my favorite from Monterey Bay thus far but still a good tea to try, indeed!
Young Hyson is a type of green tea, defined by how it is processed and the age of its leaves. Off the eastern coast of China, on the island of Taiwan, young green tea leaves are harvested and twisted into long threads. With a name meaning “before the rains,” this tea produces a golden cup that is full-bodied and, due to the young leaves, possessing a hint of natural sweetness.
