I hope you will join us for OTTI #5 "Young Raw Pu-erh"
OOPs, all "seats" taken. Please join us for a future OTTI!
This OTTI promises to be an exciting one! 5 young raw pu-erh (sheng) from 2 member vendors!
This is a first of at least several Pu-erh OTTI which will follow a logical path of new first, 90's second, and older third ... at least this is the current plan.
I have to say, I have so far conducted prelim tastings of 4 out the 5 ... and I am already having daily Pu-erh cravings which I normally only have for sencha!
I am told by more experienced Pu-erh members that this should be an outstanding OTTI line up to start things off. The 2 vendor members are Nada of http://www.essenceoftea.co.uk/news.html
and TIM from http://www.themandarinstearoom.com/
A distinguishing feature of all 5 selections is they are all produced from ancient tea trees and are relatively small productions. Please read the descriptions for each tea. Nada's teas are more southern while TIM's are more northern ... something like that.
As we go, I will attempt to offer more information, and others will hopefully enlighten us as well. Vendor 1 Essense of Tea.
