Perfect timing for me as well - I just received my first couple puerh samples last week! They were ripe, so this OTTI being raw will let me sample both much quicker than anticipated.

Not like we have to worry, however, if there is a little delay, because unlike the sencha, the sheng won't go bad if it waits.....!

If you're breaking up beengs this might be worth a watch.

I like the hammer idea actually. :shock: :mrgreen:

I was considering joining this OTTI but my schedule is about to fill up mighty fast as I am moving into my dorm next week.

But fret not! :lol: I'll be following along as I'm quite interested to know what you all think! Also, I have the 3 Nadacha offerings to help jog my mind. :D
