                        What are we looking for?

                         For the Early Spring Jade, we look for the ‘Purity of Aroma’ -
                             *aroma from the dry leaf,
                             *aroma with heat over the leaf,
                             *aroma with the leaf infused,
                             *aroma in the hot cup,
                             *aroma in the cold cup,
                             *aroma in the wet leaf


Tasting -
