INFORMATION:
Hyson is perhaps one of North America's most literary teas. Literary? Yes, literary. During the 18th and 19th centuries, Hyson was one of the most popular teas on the market, prized for its warm character, bright cup and overall sunny disposition. As well as gracing the tables and tea sets of those who had an appreciation for the finer things the East had to offer, Hyson inspired the work of many poets and writers of the period. Nowhere was this truer than in Boston. Unfortunately for merchants of the great city, tea's place in the great literary tradition of the time wasn't always a good thing. 

It is no surprise that Emerson chose to write about Hyson's fabulous aroma. Typically bright on the nose its scent hints at spring, the season in which it is produced. In the cup the tea is equally bright, round and full bodied with a touch of grassiness, with its fine full leaf, intricate cup and heavenly aroma, it has the power to inspire the poet in all of us.
