i hope shipping via air mail is also possible, recieving EMS is ridiculousy expensive in Austria (15$ per sending)

edit: ok i confused things, when i read EMS (thought chip will send the samples via EMS), forget what i wrote above!!

They charge you to receive EMS mail in Austria?
Coz since Chip is sending it, if via ems, it would be USPS EMS rate....which I think is higher.

No, I am not shipping the OTTI packages via EMS. :mrgreen: That would cost a LOT of green!

Yes, I am receiving the package from O-Cha via EMS.

Two questions: Do you offer priority mail international? And, if you do, does it also cost a lot of Green? :roll:

I do OTTI's at cost (at least trying not to lose money, figure losing money X 30 or 40 participants X however many OTTIs ... losing money is not an option ;) ), so whatever the cost would be ... TBH, I would have to check up on the cost as I am clueless.

Ooh, i meant do you or would you offer priority mail international if the extra shipping cost is paid by the participant? I'm not sure if I looked it up right but seems like USPS priority international flatrate envelope/box is about $17.

Did I mention, there are still virtual "seats available" for this OTTI round??? Please email the requested info to teachatmoderator@yahoo.com

The "Mystery shincha" is scheduled to arrive at O-Cha within a day or two. If you have not figured out which sencha it is, I will announce it when O-Cha announces it.

Then all the shincha will be EMSed to me. 2.4 kilos of Shincha!!! :mrgreen:

A reminder, if there is a shincha or two that you already ordered, I will replace it with another(others).

And doubling is permitted in this round. You can request 20 grams of each.

I order from O-cha all the time, but I am rather looking forward to this OTTI, especially as I substantially reduced my Shincha order this year, so I could try more vendors.
