From Tea Licious

Hyson or Lucky Dragon Tea is a Chinese green tea that comes from the Anhui Provence of China. It is made from young leaves that are thinly rolled to have a long, twisted appearance that unfurls when brewed. The name Hyson is likely a Chinese name meaning “flourishing spring”. However, some believe it to have been named after an English tea merchant, Phillip Hyson.

A little on the bitter side. A very earthy Chinese green, I prefer the Dragon Well. I get this when I feel adventurous

Just wanted to note that steeped leaves look quite chopped and second steeping was already a little too weak, usually I can easily steep tea three times getting decent results on the last steep. I am not sure if it’s just characteristic of this particular sort of tea, but I wanted to mention it.
