What does East Frisian leaf melange taste like?​

The East Frisian Leaf Blend offers a versatile and fascinating taste experience, in which each tea brings its own character. The robust and full-bodied Assam tea forms the backbone of this blend, with its earthy and malty notes laying a solid foundation. The delicate Darjeeling tea adds a touch of floral and muscatel aromas, adding elegance and complexity to the blend.

The fruity, vibrant flavors of the teas of Sri Lanka and Africa add to the richness of this blend, while the Java and Sumatra teas provide a slightly spicy undertone. All these flavors come together in a beautiful balance, with the strength of the Assam softened by the lighter notes of the other teas.

The East Frisian Leaf Blend has a full body and a rich taste, but at the same time also a subtle, soft aftertaste. This makes it an excellent choice for both connoisseurs and aficionados looking for a sophisticated and versatile black tea. The flavor profiles of the different teas in this blend complement each other perfectly, resulting in a harmonious whole that is both intriguing and accessible.

Enjoy the East Frisian Leaf Blend at any time of the day, and be surprised by the depth and complexity that this unique blend has to offer.

How strong is East Frisian Leaf Blend?

The strength of the East Frisian Leaf Blend can vary depending on your personal preference and the way you prepare the tea. By adjusting the brewing time and the amount of tea you use, you can adjust the strength of the tea to suit your taste.

If you let the tea steep longer, you get a more intense, more powerful taste, while a shorter brewing time results in a milder and more subtle taste experience. For the best result, we recommend a teaspoon of tea per cup and a brewing time of 3 to 5 minutes. Use water with a temperature of 90-95°C to extract the optimal taste and aromas from the tea.

For a stronger cup of tea, you can experiment with a longer brewing time or a larger amount of tea per cup. However, keep in mind that too long a brewing time or too much tea can lead to a bitter taste. Therefore, it is recommended to gradually adjust and taste the tea until you reach the desired strength.

The East Frisian Leaf Blend is versatile and can be adapted to your taste preference. Add sugar, honey or milk to taste to further personalize the taste experience. This way you can enjoy a perfect cup of tea, tailored to your wishes and adapted to the time of day. Whether you are looking for a powerful pick-me-up in the morning or a gentle, relaxing tea in the evening, the East Frisian Leaf Blend can meet your needs and provide you with a delicious and sophisticated tea experience.
