Here is how it will work, subject to changes as we go. OTTI will consist of a hopefully never ending series of "Rounds." A Round is simply a tasting/sampling which will likely consist of several teas.
1) I will procure teas that are (hopefully) of a high quality (of course
) through various vendors. (I am open to suggestions along the way!) The Round topic will include information on the teas included.
2) I will routinely list new "Rounds" under OTTI on the forum.
3) Interested members can PM me their "wish list" from the Round topic.
4) I will in turn reply PM the interested members including a list of available tea samples for the current Round. I will also include payment directions via Paypal.
5) Members will check off which teas he/she is interested in tasting/sampling, generally I am shooting for 5ish different samples per participant. and return PM back to me. This indicates a member is committed to this OTTI. Each tea is available on a first come, first served basis!
6) Members will Paypal the aprox $5 or so cost which will help
defray expenses and maintain the sustainability of OTTI. International rates would naturally be higher.
7) Each of the "5ish samples" should give participants several "sessions."
Special note: This is NOT an Adagio program, although I am sure Adagio teas will find their way into the Rounds.
