Tea has been drunk for thousands of years and used in a variety of ways. From medicinal applications to ingredients in the kitchen.
We have been in the tea business for almost 10 years now and we still can't get enough of the endless possibilities that tea offers!
What exactly is tea? And what can you do with it? In this tea blog we would like to discuss all the 'ins and outs' about tea.
Did you know that tea can also be wonderfully combined with savory foods?
I put it to the test with a delicious piece of old Cantal cheese, brought from the beautiful Auvergne in France. Cantal cheese has a strong taste. Spicy, slightly salty and with full tones in which a creamy, almost vanilla-like hint can be detected. Curious how it tastes in combination with an Oolong from Tanzania?
I know, the real wine purists will find what I'm about to describe a sacrilege... Chardonnay with a purple hue.
A nice summer twist on this white wine. All you need is a few blue ice cubes and Chardonnay. Your friends will be impressed. Curious how to make Chardonnay Violet? Then read on..
Currently one of my favorite tea drinks this summer... Chilled Matcha Latte! Matcha helps to boost your energy and concentration, while also giving you a sense of calm and clarity.
Quick to make and healthy too! Read more about how you can easily make a Chilled Matcha Latte at home.
Last week one of our nicest customers, Chloe, came by for a pleasant conversation at our tea table.
Chloe started a podcast last year where she interviews people who play a role in her life. Today it was my turn and I was allowed to elaborate for more than half an hour about one of my great passions ... tea. Follow our conversation on Spotify!
I think every parent encounters this at some point. Isn't there a better alternative to lemonade or fruit juice for your kids? Even the healthy drinks are often still full of sugars and artificial additives. Tasty, but not really healthy. Offering only water is not always an option either. As a mother of two young daughters, I was always faced with this dilemma. Fortunately, as the owner of a tea shop, the solution was close at hand!
The days are getting shorter, the evenings longer. There's nothing better than sitting on the couch with a blanket, the company of one of the cats and a London Fog Latte. London Fog is an alternative to the traditional Earl Grey. The warm tones of vanilla, lavender and cinnamon provide a very cozy feeling!
One of my favorite 'feel good' teas, especially now that autumn is really upon us! Originally a traditional black tea with cloves, cinnamon and cardamom from India, it is now hip and trendy in the rest of the world.
In this blog I explain how you can quickly and easily make your own Chai Latte.
If there has ever been a black tea with a very distinct taste and smell, it is Lapsang Souchong! The untraditional taste with a pronounced smokiness and hints of whiskey, wood and tobacco. For me, Lapsang Souchong is a delicious tea that fits those beautiful autumn and winter days that you spend with a book and a blanket on the couch.
White chocolate and Matcha tea are a perfect match. The taste of the chocolate combined with the real taste of matcha is simply divine! Not to mention the great color!
In a few simple steps I'll explain how you can make this treat yourself!
The next few days are all about a birthday, lots of sun and beach. As a thirst quencher I always make a few liters of iced tea. Even our daughters love this drink. Refreshing and healthy!
