At the risk of being banned forever.......... a pun that works on two levels:

Fukushima Green Radiation Hound!

Aaaahhhhhooooooooooo! :twisted:

Seriously though, given Chip's propensities to Greens, I'm surprised everybody has focused on 'group' (maybe it's Focus Group Re-Habilitation?)

So for Chip, it's Forever Green, Really Happy.

FGRH must mean Formal Group Review Host??
.....and did I hear someone say SENCHA??!! :P

Yep and yep! Hope to hear from you on Wednesday at 6 pm Eastern USA time.

And nope, good guess however. :mrgreen:

However there is some irony here ... :wink: :mrgreen:

Great SeeFood photo ... I see food and eat it. :mrgreen:

Another good couple guesses. However ...

FGRH was just a random hitting of keys since I cannot post a prelim edition of the topic in the Moderator Draft Room without a topic ... so I just hit some keys and forgot to delete them when I actually posted the topic on TD ... :mrgreen: :twisted: :lol: SORRY, I bad!

BTW, great TD though only 2 teas. Began with another prelim tasting for OTTI 11 with the Mrs. Awesome ... if I may say so.

Next up ... yet another prelim tasting for OTTI 11 ... this OTTI 11 will be banging. Be sure to check out the related OTTI topics, I posted links above. And remember, the OTTI 11 topic will be posted on Wednesday at 3 pm and the OTTI will go live at 6 pm ... Eastern USA time.

And speaking of OTTI 11, I am busy busy busy getting this together for Wednesday as well as getting 3-4 other OTTIs pre-prepared. So, this appropo topic will continue one more day.

Please continue to share what is in your cup ... and discuss the topic of the day ... or you can create a subject for us to discuss.

We are looking forward to sharing this TeaDay with everyone. Bottoms up!

Remarkably quiet TeaDay topic today. Today I had a rather limited TeaDay due to time constraints, just one thermos of Jin Guan Yin at work and one brewing of a shade-grown TGY at home, both from Norbu. It was the sort of day where only mellow light sweet oolongs would do.

Hoping for more variety of teas tomorrow, and knowing there will be a long evening's paperwork session to complete.....

It was a stressful day ... but there was good Tea. Though I am not at liberty to say until today (Wednesday) at 3 pm Eastern when OTTI 11 Sencha selections will be revealed! :twisted: But they were ... awesome! :mrgreen:

I've attended and hosted group tea tastings, but never a by-mail one. I like to discuss the flavor profiles with my fellow tasters though, so I'm not sure how I'd enjoy a by-mail tasting.
