Luxury Tea Tin - Herfst in Amsterdam (Autumn in Amsterdam)
Autumn in Amsterdam. The wind is blowing over the quays. The rain makes the canals swirl. The sun breaks through and sets the city in a golden glow. Time for a walk and tea. Green tea with apple and cinnamon. Perfect for this time of year.
We have selected a warm and spicy green tea blend especially for the turbulent autumn season. The sweet fragrance and flavour of apple is perfectly complemented by the spicy cinnamon and almond.
This beautiful tea is packaged in a luxurious tea tin with a double lid. This keeps the tea fresh longer and you can continue to enjoy it for a long time.
Ingredients: green tea, apple, almond, cinnamon, bitter almond oil
The taste of autumn must be the combination of apple and cinnamon. If not in the form of an apple pie, then in the form of tea. Both provide a warm and comfortable feeling.
How does Autumn Tea Amsterdam taste?
It is always difficult to explain through our website how our tea smells and tastes. It is best to visit our specialty store in loose leaf tea in the Oude Hoogstraat to feel, taste and smell this tea yourself. No time to come by? No worries! We have developed the flavour chart for this:
Autumn in Amsterdam is a refined blend based on green tea. The tea is spicy, fresh sweet and full of flavour, with a long almond/apple/cinnamon aftertaste. When brewed correctly, the tea does not become bitter and you do not suffer from astringency.
How to brew Autumn Tea Amsterdam?
For 1 cup you need about 2 level teaspoons of Amsterdam Autumn Tea. Autumn tea is based on green tea. Green tea does not tolerate boiling water well. Green tea contains tannins. This substance ensures, among other things, that the tea becomes bitter. Tannin is released in large quantities above 85ºC. So let the tea steep for about 2 minutes at 85°C. Then take out your tea filter or tea infuser.
Tip! If you don't have a kettle where you can set the temperature or a thermometer, you can also use the following trick; After bringing the water to a boil, let it cool in the kettle for another 3-4 minutes. The water has then reached the desired temperature of 85ºC.
Our Autumn Tea can be brewed 2-3 times without any problems.
How to storage Autumn Tea Amsterdam?
You can keep this tea at room temperature. The tea stays good for at least 2 years in the supplied tea can. The double lid ensures that absolutely no air can get to the tea and the taste is guaranteed.
