My little nerikomi Kyushu has been standing idle. It's perfect for an OTTI as I can easily do more experiments with each sample.

Kenji rocks (usually). Looking forward to seeing some scale shots with your samples.

Will do - and I'll use a sample packet rather than a quarter for scale. I have a routine worked out with Photobucket for uploading photos to Teachat from my iPad.

I've been eyeing Kenji nerikomi for a while now, but I don't need a large kyusu. When a small one was posted I bought it with a matching sake/tea cup.

First to guess and post correctly will receive one *BONUS* selection!


Each group of shincha selections weighs as much as a golf ball?

The answer I was looking for is that they are both sold by the dozen ... so to speak. :mrgreen:

You are all officially served 3 day notice of OTTI 19 which will go live on Sunday June 23, 2013 at 6 PM Eastern USA time along with the posting of the special topic. As usual, there will be 3 hour prior posting of the topic for member preview!

OTTI 19 will feature 5 uber premium, high-mountain 2013 Spring selections from member Silent Chaos' OriginTea Gaoshan collection. The Bonus selection for the lucky few will be a very special DYL from SC's "private collection." Look for more opps to receive the bonus!

This will indeed be the "event of the season" ... not to be missed, and you are all invited ... but as usual it will be on a first come ... first served basis.

Hope to see you at the OTTI 19 TeaTable!
