Glad to hear you are excited, debunix! It has been a long journey to arrive here ... 8)

Toll free (800) GYO-OTTI of course. 8)

When calling, ask how you can double your order ... just pay extra shipping and processing. :shock:

(for those not on theanine, just kidding!!!)

I actually just posted the topic ... OTTI 17 (and NOTTI 2 for a double play!)

Mystery Uber Sencha you say... I am intrigued. I've currently got a modest supply of low-mid grade sencha to last until shincha season, but I've been debating about adding some better tea to my supply. This might be too good for me to pass up!

I believe you should definitely be "running for (this) tea."

This is like saving the best sencha of 2012 for last!!! What a way to depart 2012 harvest and welcome 2013 havest.

This would be a great way to finish off the 2012 Tea year! I think I will be participating in both.

The review of the asamushi sencha helped this decision. Previously a fukamushi enthusiast, my tastes have shifted to asamushi. Rare, mind-blowing asamushi... I certainly cannot pass that up!

It seems I may actually be able to get in on an OTTI round. I'm lazy with checking and always learn about them months after.

Do not venture away too far!

BTW ... this is shaping up very nicely! Still have a few unanswered feelers which may require a bit of nudging. :mrgreen:

I would say I am a few days away from dropping serious hints. :twisted:

Really looking forward to this. Do OTTIs usually fill up quickly? I want to make sure I don't miss out on my first one.

Yes, they can fill up quickly.

I give a 3 day prior notification of the OTTI round going live. So, if you are looking, it is hard to miss.
