Coffee, Tea and More!

As my relationship with tea gets stronger, my interest for tea shops and cafe grow as well.

Most of the tea lovers in Bergen that I chatted to, online, suggested that I check out Herskap & Tjenere. I have been here before, but I did not pay attention to the teas because I was not interested in teas yet. However, I did already find the place cosy and kind of unique. It is not fancy, nor classy but the ambiance is perfect.

Herskap & Tjenere is not your ordinary tea/coffee shop because they do not only sell tea and coffee and (brownies) but also candies, vintage women’s clothes and gift articles such as mugs, stickers and many more!

I went here after going to the job fair last Friday. It took me at least 15 minutes before I ordered something because I could not decide what tea to order. The woman who was working there that time asked me what teas I drink, I told her, green tea but I told her that I wanted to try something new. So she suggested some teas, like the red teas and she added that she drinks it everyday to relax her nerves. I still could not decide what to order so I told her I need more time. I looked up to one of the shelves and found the Chinese teas, then I suddenly remembered the tea blogs that I stumbled upon to, almost all of them recommended Pu erh tea.

So yes, I ordered a cup of Pu erh and I loved it! One cup is 33 NOK. Not bad!

When it comes to the service, I can say that they are one of the best. I cannot say that they are very knowledgeable about Chinese teas they are selling but the woman was really helpful and answered my questions nicely and politely.

I recommend this tea shop to all tea enthusiasts and curious cats like me. 🙂

TAKE Sushi Bergen

Moving to a bigger city is tough and so as finding a good sushi restaurant. Luckily, during my visit to Galleriet (a name of a mall in Bergen) last year I found this sushi restaurant by accident. It was not hard to find because it is located near the main entrance of Galleriet. I love Japanese food so I am glad to find one.

TAKE Sushi is a small restaurant with a sitting capacity of 14. It is not big but I love how the restaurant looks, simple and minimalistic. I have never been in Japan but it felt like I am close to Japan.

Yesterday is my second time eating here. I treat myself with a bowl of miso soup and 10 pieces of crispy spicy laks (salmon) with avocado maki because I am now a certified volunteer of Red Cross Norway (will do a separate post about that later). The miso soup is perfect (The best miso soup I have tasted so far.). The amount of tofu and vegetables is just right and is not bitter compared to the other miso soups that I have tasted before. The maki rolls are good too. The salmon is fresh and the sushi rice has the right consistency and temperature which only proves that all are fresh.

When it comes to service, they are one of the best. They are very accommodating and friendly.

 

Take note: I am not paid nor asked by TAKE Sushi to write about their restaurant. This post is my personal opinion only.
