Yes, no problems, only once mind. I,ve also purchased from achica a couple of times.

Have you bought from Casafina, CD?

That,s fair enough Ori. Touch wood I have never had a problem buying online but I agree you need to be cautious. Casafina is a well known and well reputed company though. I rarely buy from fly by nights that I,ve never heard of.xxx

Members only. I don't quite want to give them my details **before** I check out the site. But thanks for the thought.

ALERT ALERT. Important post for Ori. Look at the casafina website for Japanese teapots! small ones starting at £17.99 up to £ about £34. They are gorgeous. Saw them and thought of you. Don,t worry about getting one shipped, I could do that for you if you want one.xxx

I read the "bowl" thing too Ori.....but the website I went on said really cold water for some reason.

I did find on JustBento's website people who say you should actuall mix the paste, spread it on the bottom of the bowl, *turn it upside down* over a plate and let it stand. But even on JB there's some debate as to whether the water should be cold or tepid. Guess I'll a) try both and b) talk to my students who are botanists.

Cold water Ori and it seems to be similar to mustard powder ie it is better if mixed and left for a few mins to develop. It's best to mix the amount you require each time as it loses it's potency if left too long. X

check out...wasabi.org gives hints on storing, uses etc

Thanks, Ivan, that's the only English website I found with any references to it, too. I was a bit put off by the "I am the ultimate authority" attitude of several articles on that site...plus the fact that, oh surprise, he has a brand of wasabi to sell. So of course, yeah--that's the Only One that's any good!

Just looked it up in the book of 'Ingredients', Ori. It doesn't say if the water has to be hot, just to leave it for at least ten minutes.

Hi Ori - sorry I don't know the answer to that one, but as the forum is so quiet, I could not bare to see your post sitting there with no responses :-)

I was thinking of you when I got up at 4am this morning - you had probably already been up for hours by then! Do you exercise much at the moment? I always sleep better if I have managed at least some exercise during the day - giving the dog an extra long walk is the simplest, but a hard day of gardening, followed by a swim and sauna (helps the recovery from the gardening) usually guarantees a good night's sleep for me. Avoiding the alcohol also helps - it sends me off to sleep very well, but I then wake up in the middle of the night feeling thirsty and needing the bathroom. With the exception of holidays, we only ever have a drink at the weekend these days.

Oh well - back to work.....

I finally got some wasabi powder (those little "reconstituted" tubes are a cheat). I looked online and some people say to use hot waater and some to use cold. Which is best, y'all?
