thirded!! thirded thirded thirded! The only pu erh I've tried was in one of my signature blends...which apparently was a hot mess, but I rather liked it, so I think that means my tastes are waaaay off! :mrgreen:

fourthed :) Pu erh is one of those things that sounds interesting but I'm a little iffy about it and pretty clueless where to start.

I would also second matcha, as it is something else I've been curious to try. I could see that getting a bit expensive though.

More specialized OTTI-s might be interesting too, like say, one just for ti guan yin, or maybe just more oolong OTTI-s in general. Again, personal bias :P

I'm totally voting for Darjeeling, of course. Depending on the timeline, it might be too late to do a first flush OTTI this year... some of the best offerings will disappear quickly. But I know Victoria and I have had some amazing ones, yummm. I'd be up for 2nd flush and Autumnal flush too... but nothing beats FF.

Definitely Darjeeling!

How about:
Nilgiri
Ceylon
Chai
Keemun
Yunnan
Hunan

By the time we cover all the growing areas, styles, etc., we could be OTTI-ing for many years to come!

Darjeeling would certainly be an exciting OTTI...I know a lot of people get excited about 1st flush but 2nd flush is my fave and for some other people too :)

Also Chinese greens would be fun :)

and this last oolong OTTI was mostly on the greener end...would be fun to have a roasted oolong OTTI to start exploring another side of oolong :)
