THE SMALLEST HOUSE
Masterclasses by Het Kleinste Huis
Het Kleinste Huis is not only a great tea shop with a very extensive tea collection, it is also a wonderful place to recover after a day of shopping, to catch up with a friend, to gain inspiration or to hold a meeting. .
Above the shop are two small cozy tea rooms. These are probably the smallest tea rooms in the Netherlands. And actually you can also speak of 'Private Tea Rooms' because because space in the rooms is so limited, we can receive a maximum of 5 people per room. This way, a stay in the tea rooms quickly becomes a private affair!
Both rooms are very tastefully decorated and we would like to invite you here to enjoy one of our Masterclasses.

"We couldn't recommend a better place for a great experience!"
ADuring this Masterclass Tea Tasting you will learn everything about tea. While enjoying tea and apple pie, we will explain what tea actually is. Where is the origin of tea? What types of tea are there? How is this tea produced? What does tea look like? How does tea taste? How do you make tea? All these questions and more will be answered during this Masterclass.
You will also be able to view, smell and taste many teas. We will also discuss the important role that Amsterdam played in the development of Western tea culture.
All in all a very nice and cozy way to increase your knowledge of tea.

Do you have a question about our Masterclasses?
Our tea rooms are open from Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 6pm.
We are also open on some Sundays. Please see current opening hours.
That is definitely recommended! Our space and facilities are very limited. As a result, we are fully booked almost every day. So book in advance and avoid disappointment.
Unfortunately, we can only accommodate a very limited number of people at a time in our house. Weekends and Tuesdays are always the most popular with us. Do you want to be sure of a spot? Book well in advance.
This will differ per person. To reach the tea rooms on the first floor, you must first climb a steep spiral staircase. This will certainly be quite a task for people who have difficulty walking.
Do you want more explanation? Then call us on +31 20 752 75 85. We are happy to assist you.
Due to the limited space, we can receive a maximum of 5 people at the same time.
