I am very looking forward to trying the next OTTI session.

Wuyi seems a very good idea to me.

I would like to see Kenya, Bolivia, Vietnam and other different locations. Some of these teas are very good, some are awful, but they are neglected areas of tea production. Perhaps the US, British and others could also be covered. We could break new ground!

Tea snobs seem to be interested only in China, Taiwan, and Japan (and Korea), but I don't know if that's because very little good tea is grown in other countries, or because they don't export it, or it's just that tea snobs are prejudiced. Maybe a combination of the three.

I challenge you to show me some tea grown in the US (not counting Hawaii) or Britain!

Wow, I wonder if it's any good. At $10 for 1.6 oz, I hope people don't use it for "sweet tea"!

I can't believe they grow tea in Britain, though. If they could, I'm sure they would have been doing it for centuries.

Thank you everyone ... keep 'em coming. I place all suggestions in the master suggestion list located in the FP (first post after the OP, original post) of this topic.

I am also adding a tentative schedule to the OP of this topic for you to check out whenever ... and to route for other additions to this schedule!

Wuyi, other darker roast oolong and gyokuro would be good especially for the season.
