Humble TEApologies for the delay, but all the teas have been in cold storage in order to ensure optimum freshness for participants (though I kept hearing sencha calling my name ... like sirens tempting me ).
Even during lost power, I kept everything at 34ish* F.

Starting out with a few tastings including Sae Midori and the Honyama ... extremely divergent.
As is my custom, I will say little else til everyone has a chance to sample for themselves.

PO is closed, so in the mail tomorrow. TIME TO BREW some TdJ sencha!
Oh wait ... still have those fun customs forms to fill in. YAY!!!

An occupational hazard of OTTI is the darting looks from customers behind me as the one and only clerk weighs and tags each package ... not to mention the internationals.
