ALL payments have been received! Thanks much for the prompt payments ... this has to be a record for completion of payments.

So, this is now officially closed.

All of us newbies have paid up pdq because we are anxious to try the teas. :mrgreen:

So, Chip, any idea when we will get them? :?:

Well, since everyone has paid, I will attempt to move it up a week. Based upon past payments, I had tentatively scheduled shipping for next week. But I will endeavor to ship out this week instead. :mrgreen:

In order to keep everything as fresh as possible, nothing is packaged ahead of time. So all the samples have to be weighed, etc. A tedious task. :twisted:

I hope you are patient. Based on other OTTI's...Canada has the slowest postal service and those participants usually get theirs last.

I could walk it faster ... well, let's be optimistic ... or try to be anyway.

Well, if the delivery is as slow as has been implied above, this may be my first and only OTTI shipment.

Almost all packed up, just a few finishing touches, then hopefully off to the PO on Friday.

BTW, I am very much enjoying the prelim tastings of this round (I have to keep reminding myself to NOT comment too much about them on the forum). A great group of "sencha" for us to taste and discuss!
