my favourite green tea actually comes in single-portion powder envelopes. i think it is a danish brand, so it should be available in germany as well (can't remember the name thougt, will come back to it). so all you have to do is heat water, pour water, and enjoy! and it is really good quality, despite the powder part, because it is made through some hightec production method that preserves all the antioxidants even better than any other way of making tea [:)]

aha! sounds very interesting. but you use boiling water?
i used to buy a damn expensive organic green tea (how do i always end up with the expensive stuff?) from japan called sencha. really great and relaxing. the ritual itself relaxes me.
izzat y u call yourself green?

sencha is good, i agree. i think this one also is organic, as a matter of fact i'll run down the stairs and check right now...
It is called "Original Green Tea Powder", from PharmaGreen, Denmark, and comes in a white box.
I call myself green partly because i love green tea, partly because i'm a bit green when it comes to fine chocolates, (if you read my latest post in sources, you'll understand why...)

haven't tried any domori yet, but as soon as my student-loan drops into my account in the beginning of january i will most definitly get a BIG mailorder, including the domori green (dying to taste it!). but the end of the year means end of the money, so the four different valrhonas i can get my hands on here will have to do for a little while longer...

well, i hope your money goes a long way. my orders have all come in and are already accounted for ;-) why does good chocolate go so fast!?

i personally think you can't get any better than domori. and green is a really nice bar.

shop around for the best prices. i am sure in't veld in berlin is cheaper than chocolate in norway. cheaper than munich, that's for sure!

Alex, what is it with you and Norwegian chicks? ;-) Just kiddin' ...

Green, Alex is right - Berlin is the cheapest chocolate city of Norway thanks to the campaign prices from Norwegian Air ;-) (well, from Oslo Airport that is - and it depends of course on the amount of chocolate you're buying/importing). Anyway, Domori will hopefully be sold in Oslo in the nearest future, and I am sure mail orders are welcome.

Chocolate is cheaper than therapy and you don't need an appointment.

hmmm, i didn't know that. but they stock more than they have on their website anyway. seeing the shop is a good idea, ask lonely.

problem in germany now: can't get domori's chateau series because of some legal problems with the supermarket chain aldi. that's what i've heard...

I once read the memoris of two american stewardesses, with the appropriate title "Coffee, tea, or me?" It mainly deals with their affairs with the male business travellers...[;)] They note that scandinavian men are difficult to seduce, because they are so spoiled with beautiful women at home...[8D]

Green, my German is not really good, but I am pretty sure they can make an exception for a good customer even if it's a new one. But Berlin is worth a visit or ten anyway so if you go on with cheap noodle dinners ...

With so many scandinavians at the forum, may be we should have a special sub-forum with scandinavian languages - you could practice. Norwegian is very easy,I learned it already when I was very young[;)] BTW, we have actually had some german students here, who speak almost fluent Norwegian after four months.
