Sourcing[edit]

I removed some of the sources...I think they do not come close to meeting the criteria for reliable sources because they are all self-published. The remaining sources are also questionable...the first is a tea company (self-published), and the second is also a tea company, Adagio, which is admittedly one with more of a reputation but I still think this is not really quality sourcing.

Origin of name[edit]

I have just tried to tidy up the Cantonese name, and am hampered by not speaking Cantonese. The "Flourishing" translation looks very dubious to me, comparing with the wiktionary entries .

I cannot find any good support even for the existence of this Phillip Hyson - nothing in Google books for example. The SOED gives the derivation as being from Cantonese. OTOH, the Cantonese wikipedia seems to say that the name derives from this English tea merchant, and of course the 熙春 could simply be a Chinese phonetic representation of the name "Hyson" (茶 just means "tea"). So I removed the (red) WL for Phillip Hyson (PH), added a working link to a tea shop claiming the PH etymology; but I think it is very unclear how plausible either claim is.

All this thanks to an Only connect wall with a group of four teas! Imaginatorium (talk) 03:31, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
