I recognize one of those packages... an offering from Zencha, perhaps? Or at least a Yame 八女 tea?

You are like a kid shaking his Christmas presents when nobody is looking! :wink: Perhaps I should add more "wrapping" and blur it more? :mrgreen:

Ahhh, I did not realize that 八女 was the spelling for Yame. Makes sense, and good to know...! :D

The best way to be a part of this Gyokuro round is to keep your eye on this OTTI/NOTTI forum. I will begin posting TEAser posts pretty soon!!!!!

Then I will post a 3 day notification in the 3 day OTTI Notification topic. Ultimately I will post the official topic for this round which will guide you.

Also you can check out this topic on how OTTI operates. http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?f=74&t=14832

But bottom line, keep an eye on the OTTI Forum!

Sooo, let's make it a double header, shall we! OTTI 17 (code named GY-OTTI 1, pronounced gee ot tee) will finally go live on Sunday at 6 pm Eastern USA time, the same time as NOTTI 2! The new topic for OTTI 17/GY-OTTI 1 will be posted for previewing 3 hours prior.

OTTI 17/GY-OTTI 1 will feature 4 Gyokuro in the retail price range of around 47.50-52.50 USD per 100 grams. I was targetting a 5th selection, but the retail for the selection fell outside of the range.

I will have much more to share in the topic on Sunday!

I hope you are spared this time ... but ...

Well, I know you are in ... you have "been in" for around a year. :mrgreen: So if I do not hear from you at 6 pm sharp, I will know your dire straights and reserve for you.

I would like to say, I can't wait, but the reality is, I've been waiting for these for a year or so......and the wait is about to end, and I'm very excited!
