dry leaf appearance: good, has a grayish haze (not from the photo processing).
in the 2nd pic (not the best), you can make out little hairs on the leaf so ‘hair tip’ is  accurate description!

taste: flavor ~medium strength flavor, mostly ‘regular green’ feel, pan fried oil sensation with something of a honey sensation (can be felt in the smell as well). some sweet aftertaste coating left over on the tongue and palate which does last a couple minutes. [compare w HSMF.Zhong Guo ChaHS Yun Feng .Wing Hop Fung]

at most 2 infusions maintain taste, subsequently flavor drops, astringency takes its place.

wet leaf is not what i like – too much chopped up stuff. color is darker – dont know if pick is older in age, or part of bush, or storage, or processing.

me try again: .maybe
