Hello from Oslo Norway!

by Selaphiel » Feb 1st, '08, 19:19

Hi!

Just wanted to post a brief introduction. Got a tip about this site from O-Cha.com.

I`m 24 years old. I`m here to talk about and discuss tea with other tea lovers, really looking forward to it :) My interest for tea hit me out of nowhere. I can`t really pin point (Always been interested in asian culture, that might be a factor) what it was, but whatever it was Im very glad it happened, because I`ve found a hobby that pleases me on many levels. It`s not just the magnificent tastes, it`s the diversity of tea, the esthetics of the tea itself when you hold the wet tea leaves in your hands, the esthetics of the beautiful tea ceremonies and the excitement related to the collection of different tea pots and cups. Combine all this with the amazing taste and the fact that it`s good for you as well!

I`m gonna stop my rant now by saying I`m looking forward to our future talks and discussions. :D

LOL, we meet again!!! And now welcome to TeaChat as well. You have joined the 2 best forums on the planet.

You will find TC to be much more diversified and less centered on one type and nationality of tea.

While you are here, please stop by the TeaDay forum and share what is in your cup. In fact, stop by there several times a day to share. It will be exciting to here of your perspectives on tea from Oslo.

They were bought from the french tea store Palais des thes here in Oslo. They are all available from their site www.palaisdesthes.com/en as well.

That`s the only good tea store in this country. But after seeing some of the amazing tea ware some of the people on this forum have, I`m gonna widen my collection with some new beautiful pieces using the beauty of the internet :D
