Welcome to Teachat!
I got to spend several hours in Helsinki once, rather enjoyed it, walked around the town, and went for a bike ride. Great place, though I went there in "summer" which honestly would be called winter in about half the United States. (Hmm maybe I should put in my Jean Sibelius CD).
It is a great place, hope to see you around discussing tea and teaware. You are a little early for Shincha Season, but I am sure the hype will start up soon
