spring & autumn leafs difference

by cuppa » Oct 2nd 16 3:31 pm

How do I recognize difference between spring and autumn Puerh tea leafs? Can I see it on tea cake and loose tea before or after infusion?
Can anybody send a link to some photos where I can see obvious difference?
Any other tips how to learn the difference are appreciated.
Thanks.

Here's a link to an older TeaChat thread about Spring vs. Autumn Harvest. I don't think anyone on the thread identified a way to specifically tell the difference, but they did discuss the different qualities of the two harvests.
