Next prelim tasting, Botan. Wow, very nice aroma and sweetness. Really nice and I am even doing this one on the road.

I will post tempting photos later tonight.

I won't miss it, and since I opened the envelope with OTTI 13 tea immediately after paying for OTTI 14, I have lots of Sencha/shincha to drink.

:oops: OOPs, I just noticed that I accidently had wrong (higher) costs for Europe and Australia in the emails I sent to participants. If you paid higher, I will refund your paypal.

Sorry about that.

While there are still a few spots open for this round, I will commence the next phase, weighing and "pouching" and packaging. I expect these will be ready for shipping on Thursday.

If you want to up your order to a "double" ... please email me ASAP.

If you want to participate, email me ... I will continue to offer this round until all spots are taken even if this is after shipping the initial group.

... perhaps I am being a little too overly cautious, but the last two days have been brutally hot and humid here. Even with the AC running full blast, I have held off packaging the OTTI ... perhaps til tonight.
