20, as in 20 different 100g shicha bags !?
Yes, 20 different selections.
Most are only offered in 100 gram bags, but some are 50 grammers, one is 30 grams as I recall. Fortunately I have some local addicts who will likely buy around half of each bag of my shincha purchases.
Every year for the last around 8 years, I set a personal goal of trying at least 20 different selections of shincha from various vendors. Most are from bread and butter vendors that I order from frequently, but I also try to sample some from vendors I have not ordered from previously ... or have not for numerous years.
This is the first year I have ordered 11 shincha from 1 vendor ... far exceeding my previous high.
