I had the same problem - here's my solution. I decided to do the shincha first because it's more fragile than the silver needles - then I just stuck my hand into the storage canister and chose at random. Some of the teas will be better than others - but none will be bad - and I don't have $20 invested in a bag of the tea if it's not my favorite.
This is fun - thanks again to Chip for all his work. Those aluminum foil packages were so professional...where does one gain experience like that?
