Miiskin Describe dermoscopic diagnosis of melanocytic lesions using pattern analysis Introduction In dermoscopy, the first step algorithm identifies whether a lesion is melanocytic or nonmelanocytic. Pattern analysis is the method preferred by many expert dermoscopists to diagnose melanocytic lesions and to differentiate benign melanocytic lesions from malignant melanoma. Pattern analysis refers to the simultaneous assessment of the diagnostic value of all dermoscopy features shown by the lesion.
The standard has been disputed, particularly by producers from Guangdong. Cultivated tea bushes, from the seeds or cuttings of wild tea trees and planted in relatively low altitudes and flatter terrain. The tea produced from these plants are considered inferior due to the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizer in cultivation, and the lack of pleasant flavors, and the presence of harsh bitterness and astringency from the tea.
These trees produce teas of better flavor due to the higher levels of secondary metabolite produced in the tea tree. As well, the trees are typically cared for using organic practices, which includes the scheduled pruning of the trees in a manner similar to pollarding.
Despite the good quality of their produced teas, "wild arbor" trees are not as prized as the truly wild trees. Such teas are valued for having deeper and more complex flavors, often with camphor or "mint" notes, said to be imparted by the many camphor trees that grow in the same environment as the wild tea trees.
These inconsistent and often misleading labels can easily confuse uninitiated tea buyers regardless of their grasp of the Chinese language. Tea factories are generally honest about their leaf sources, but someone without access to tea factory or other information is often at the mercy of the middlemen or an unscrupulous vendor.
Because collectors often doubt the reliability of written information, some believe certain physical aspects of the leaf can point to its cultivation. As well, the presence of thick veins and sawtooth-edged on the leaves along with camphor flavor elements and taken as signifiers of wild tea.
Grading is rarely consistent between factories, and first grade tea leaves may not necessarily produce first grade cakes. Different grades have different flavors; many bricks blend several grades chosen to balance flavors and strength. Spring tea is the most highly valued, followed by fall tea, and finally summer tea.
While some individuals oversee small-scale production of high-quality tea, such as the Xizihao and Yanqinghao brands,[ citation needed ] the majority of tea on the market is compressed by factories or tea groups.
Different tea factories have earned good reputations. Menghai Tea Factory and Xiaguan Tea Factory, which date from the s, have enjoyed good reputations, but in the twentyfirst century face competition from many of the newly emerging private factories.
However, due to production inconsistencies and variations in manufacturing techniques, the reputation of a tea company or factory can vary depending on the year or the specific cakes produced during a year.
Recipes[ edit ] Tea factories, particularly formerly government-owned factories, produce many cakes using recipes for tea blendsindicated by a four-digit recipe number. The first two digits of recipe numbers represent the year the recipe was first produced, the third digit represents the grade of leaves used in the recipe, and the last digit represents the factory.
The numberfor example, would denote a recipe from using fourth-grade tea leaf made by Menghai Tea Factory represented by 2. Factory numbers fourth digit in recipe: Not all recipes are numbered, and not all cakes are made by recipe.
The term "recipe," it should be added, does not always indicate consistency, as the quality of some recipes change from year-to-year, as do the contents of the cake. Perhaps only the factories producing the recipes really know what makes them consistent enough to label by these numbers.
Occasionally, a three digit code is attached to the recipe number by hyphenation. The first digit of this code represents the year the cake was produced, and the other two numbers indicate the production number within that year.Dead bluebottles were scattered on his hair and shoulders.
