For example when two people try same sencha, but one was long time japanese tea drinker and one was mostly oolong drinker their reviews will certainly be really different. Without mentioning background they can become quite confusing. And if mention, then people with same preference can understand more .

However, I think that in order to be able to participate in an OTTI, you should have been an active member before and specifically, I think you should have discussed teas on several occasions before, be it on TeaDays or the "What X are you currently drinking?" threads.
I don't think that people with 1 post should be allowed to participate in an OTTI (or a teaware SO for that matter).
