Sorry I've been silent up until now! I just finished piecing together the photos I took for all these teas.
I took some minimal tasting notes, but I'm not very articulate or experienced in describing tastes. So instead, here are a bunch of photos with minimal, nonsensical notes.
The photos are really long, so I'll just link to the rest.
As for the jade, I found it ok. Somewhere in the middle of the pack. Mild overall. Couldn't figure out the taste, but when I read the "sweet corn" description it made sense. Fairly nice.

Nice chocolate smell. Bit floral, subtle hints of fruit, not bitter, even with a long brew. Very good, but not the best.
My only notes for this one were "spicy, sweet, malt, caramel?" No idea what I meant there.haha I remember this one being REALLY enjoyable. Probably why I just scribbled down random words. Definitely in my top 2.

Fairly deep herbal tastes, not chocolatey like tie guan yin. Nice, but not as memorable as others.
Floral, slightly spicy taste with a... tartness? (but not bitter). You can tell it's a green. Reminded me of x-mas (no idea why). Tied with imperial pearl as my fav.

My thoughts are in line with everyone else on this one. Nothing to write home about, but ok. I like to believe it would get better with age.
