It was not my intention to get in a debate of who is the better vendor. I have nothing but respect for you, as you are brilliant when it comes to green teas, and I know I have sought your advice more than once in the past.
Perhaps my post did not relate to your question as well as it should have, and I should have left it with what I said in the begining or not responded at all.
I obviously was not clear, but what I was trying to say is that what makes a vendor good or great, adequate or horrible, depends, to some degree, on what you are looking for and what your priorities are. I meant to bring up O-cha only as a way of contrasting two, in my opinion, fantastic, yet different vendors.
If my previous poor choice of words has communicated to you anything other than what I just said, I apologize.
