How does Amsterdam Blend taste?​

The Amsterdam Melange is a wonderful interplay of flavors and aromas. The base of high-quality black tea (88%) provides a solid, robust taste, while the addition of citrus peel introduces a refreshing touch of sourness.

The cloves and natural aromas give the tea a warm, spicy character that is perfect for the cold winter months.

The vanilla pieces complete the taste experience with a hint of sweetness and creaminess. This harmonious blend of flavors will tickle your taste buds and offer you a moment of pure indulgence.

How strong is Amsterdam Blend?

The strength of the Amsterdam Melange can vary, depending on how long you let the tea steep. In general, it is recommended to let the tea steep for 3 to 5 minutes for an optimal taste experience. If you like a stronger taste, you can let the tea steep a little longer, but be careful not to let the taste become too bitter.

Use about 2 grams of tea per cup and add hot water (about 90-95°C). For best results, it is best to brew the tea in a teapot or a tea filter, so that the leaves have enough space to unfold and release their flavour.
