Excellent! I've been too busy to try the other tasting sessions, but I've been able to carve out a bit more time lately, and just in time, it seems!

Sounds very exciting, can't wait to compare!

OK, I have been dropping a few hints around the forum! Time to announce OTTI Round #6.

A package arrived from China this week from a member.

This will be an OTTI dedicated to Tie Guan Yin commonly simply called TGY (or however you want to spell it :mrgreen:). 5 selections from a member who is also an online vendor and TeaRoom owner living in China, IPT. His shop is Chinese Tea Culture, http://www.chinese-tea-culture.com/

I will be posting the official OTTI #6 topic on Monday 9/27/10 at 6 pm Eastern USA time. At that time, members can commit to this OTTI round. "Seating" will be very limited!!!

The topic will include more information and discussion on the selections.

+1! There are lots of 'Greenies' around here.

The OTTIs are a great way to get a chance to taste teas that you might not otherwise. Selections coming up will give you a nice tasting of especially Asamushi and Fukamushi. I know you will not be disappointed.

I understand (I think) that asamushi is lightly steamed sencha and fukamushi is heavily steamed, but what is chu?
