Hi, welcome to our tea blog!
We are Kirsten and Niels, owners of tea specialty store Het Kleinste Huis. In 2014 we started a small tea shop in the smallest house in Amsterdam. Our range has grown slowly from about 65 varieties to more than 200 varieties now.
In recent years we have been able to get people, from all over the world, excited about our teas and shop.
To us, tea is more than just a cup of hot, flavored water. We would like to share our knowledge about tea with you through this blog.
In this blog we will discuss the different types of tea, the medicinal properties of tea and the best way to make tea.
And for those of you who can't visit our tea rooms, we'd like to share some of our tea and pastry recipes with you through this blog.
But also stories about the smallest house in Amsterdam will not be missing!
To keep this blog as organized as possible, we have divided the articles into different categories, from recipes to health, from tea to our house.
We wish you a lot of reading pleasure!
Kirsten and Niels.
