Chip,

I'm so glad that you continue to put together these OTTI rounds. It's been a privilege to take part in a couple. Each increased my understanding of not only specific teas but also broadened my appreciation of tea in general.

Hopefully there will be room for me to take part in this Shincha round. I'll admit to still feeling like a bit of a novice and this would begin to solidify my rather thin foundation. At the very least, it would make purchasing larger quantities from various vendors feel like less of a shot in the dark.

"The Event of the Season!" cometh ... and it is NOT a Japanese round!

I know, I know, you are all shocked by this revelation coming from me of all people, right? How can the event of the season not be a Japanese tea OTTI?

Well, stay tuned and you will find out very soon! Trust me, it will be quite impressive!!!

Any guesses? Perhaps a game of riddles a la Bilbo and Gollum?

What is green and not at the same time?

I'm excited hear where the next destination in Middle Earth is headed: "One tea to bring them all and in the Tea Chat bind them." :D

Good one! I cannot trump this comeback (and I am such a LotR geek that I am always quoting it). There will be that that "one tea" ... but they are all as good as gold.

............

Clue 2: The thin air up here is making me giddy ... or is it the excitement of 5 selections from this one vendor ... be the first to guess the origin of the tea and receive a bonus*!

Hmm... Well I think that gao shan is grown higher than yancha, so I guess I'll go with the Taiwanese high mountain oolong.

I'm guessing an OTTI featuring our very own SilentChaos of Origin Tea.

I'm wondering if we are to be getting a little help from Valinor and taking a ride on the backs of the great Eagles of Manwe to the top of Da Yu Ling to survey the surrounding farms of the "Misty Mountains." :mrgreen:
