For a large part of her life Kirsten has had a passion for entrepreneurship and tea. Since 2014, she has been combining this with her husband, Niels, in the tea specialty store Het Kleinste Huis (The Smallest House in Amsterdam). What once started with a modest collection of 70 types of loose leaf teas has now grown to more than 250.

Kirsten likes to write about things that keep her busy (this doesn't have to be just tea!). In addition, Kirsten is also a proud mother of two beautiful daughters.
