History: Some believe it to have been named after an English tea merchant, Phillip Hyson. Hyson and Young Hyson tea were highly prized by the colonial Americans and tax on hyson was higher than for other teas. During the Boston Tea Party there were 70 chests of Hyson destroyed.

Here’s Hoping Teabox – Round Seven- Tea #38
A tasty enough green tea, but it would be lost in the sea of mediocre green teas for me. It has unique packaging though! And I love seeing unique teas in the teabox.

How coincidental—I just drank my first cup of an Oliver Pluff (gift from one of my sixth graders). I just like saying Oliver Pluff. Doesn’t that sound like a character in a Dickens novel?

YES – the names Dickens uses are always fun.
