Chip (or Xell) -- how does the 'guricha' compare asa/fukamushi wise...? Or is it a different category altogether?

I liken it to asamushi. Guri leaves are curled versus needles of sencha.

Tomorrow, I will post some brewing suggestions. I will also post a "blind key" since the pouches only have a number, in order to facilitate blind tasting .

Look for it here and also in the OP. :mrgreen:

Fear not looking in the topic. The "blind key" will not be visible unless you want it to be! :mrgreen:

As someone who's never participated in an OTTI before, would it be possible to get some tips on what people like to see in reviews? How detailed do we need to be? Do we have to taste more than one at a time to cross-compare more effectively?
