  • T-mail Tuesday!

What better reason could there be for sending a T-mail tea card than the birth of a baby! The perfect way to congratulate the (new) parents! 

For this special occasion we have created a cute range of 6 tea cards. And they come with a little surprise! 

These lovely cards are filled with our Nursing Tea! A herbal tea blend of fennel, anise and caraway, especially created for nursing mommy’s! 

This soothing tea with its gentle flavor helps to relax and can have a positive effect on the production of breastmilk. 

You will find more information about the nursing tea on our website. (Link in bio)

  • Sharing one of my favorites today! 

Our Nursing Tea, I simply love it. It sure has helped me through some challenging times when I was nursing ❤️ it really allowed me to take a moment for myself and the soothing effect helped to relax.

Our Nursing Tea is a lovely herbal blend that can be used to support breast milk production.

It is a special herbal tea with fennel, anise and caraway. 

These three are certainly superfoods! Packed with vitamins and antioxidants and they have a medicinal effect. 

They can help with digestion, intestinal cramps and menstruaal complaints. They can also have a stimulating effect on breast milk production. In addition, they can have a calming effect to the intestines of babies who suffer from colic. It is recommended not to give the tea directly to the little ones but to let them absorb the substances through the breast milk. 

Recommended amount per day would be one cup. 

Our Nursery Tea is available in the store and online. Link in the bio!

  • Born and raised in Amsterdam, we are devoted to our city. The Smallest House is inseparable from Amsterdam and the city is a great source of inspiration. 

As an ode to Amsterdam, we have developed a beautiful range of tea blends such as the herbal Zeedijk Blend, the Amsterdam Blend, the Amsterdam Earl Grey and a wonderful Amsterdam Winter Blend. 

Today we put our Zeedijk blend in the spotlights! It is named after the Zeedijk (Sea Dijk), a street in the old centre of Amsterdam. It is the northern and eastern boundary of the red light district and the heart of Chinatown. 

Sharp ginger, sweet cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, spicy nutmeg and lemony coriander... world flavors come together in this heartwarming tea blend. It is reminiscent of our beloved Zeedijk. 

Most of the spices, such as ginger, nutmeg and coriander, are full of vitamins and minerals. Cloves are known to have antimicrobial properties. in addition to a rich taste, this infusion is also good for your immune system. 

Zeedijk Blend and all the other Amsterdam are available online! Link in the bio!

  • Oolong tea, my homework for today! 
Even though the Oolong teas are quite common in our household, I really feel it is important to familiarize myself with the texture, scent and flavor of each Oolong tea from our collection. So now it is tea tasting time! 

Have you discovered our amazing range of Oolong teas yet? 

Oolong tea combines the qualities of black and green teas, giving it several interesting health benefits. Oolong is said to have a positive effect on metabolism and helps reduce stress. This wonderful tea, which contains several vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, definitely helps you build a healthy lifestyle! 

Our Oolong selection is available in store or through our website (link in bio).

  • It’s T-Mail Tuesday! 

There are so many lovely themes we would like to work out for you but considering all that is going on world wide we thought the most appropriate theme would be Happy Birthday. 

Regulations are getting stricter in the Netherlands and in other countries as well. 

From our own experience we know that celebrating life events with and without the people you love has become quite a challenge and can be heartbreaking at times. 

Our Happy Birthday T-Mail cards filled with loose leaf tea will allow you to send your love, warmth and birthday wishes to your loved ones. Celebrate together, even though you are apart. 

Enjoy a tea moment together, without being together! ❤️

  • Slowly getting ready for the day. Sun is peaking through the curtains, the house is still quiet (with two tiny toddlers a rarity on its own). Grapes, strawberries and white hybiscus tea for a proper vitamine C boost. Healthy breakfast, healthy start! Have a great day everyone!
  • Today it’s T-Mail Tuesday! 

Following the lovely response we received to last weeks post about our new T-Mail collection we decided to launch 4 new designs!

The theme for these 4 new tea postcards filled with loose leaf tea is Tea Moments. Whether you like to enjoy a cup of tea all by yourself or in the company of someone dear, tea is all about the moment. A moment of caring, sharing and togetherness. 

Wouldn’t be nice to send someone you care about a special tea moment in these challenging times? 

Enjoy a tea moment together, without being together! ❤️

  • Picking flowers with my two year old! 
Came home with a lovely bunch of wild carrot and wild chervil. Their lace-like flowers are just so wonderful and in a vase they make such a romantic centrepiece. 
We made ourselves a cup of tea afterwards and added some wild chervil blossom we had dried earlier this week. The flavour reminded me of anise. Might even be something we could create a nice tea blend with!

  • Madeleines! 
These vanilla flavoured mini cakes hold dear childhood memories of endless summers spent in France. My mother used to treat us to these little golden cakes with a glass of milk. 
Today we enjoy them with a lovely cup of mint and verbena infusion. 

Now that we are reminiscing the good times...what kind of food or drinks do you have fond childhood memories of?
