With its gentle fruity notes and low astringency, this tea is perfect for those who like their brew hot and straight. A touch of sweetener lifts the black tea flavour which also blends beautifully with milk.
To feel like Dutch royalty, serve in fine china. Though your favourite tea cups will do! In winter, keep your teapot warm with a knitted tea cosy and use a mug you can wrap your mitts around.
Pairs Well With
Enjoy your Dutch Afternoon Tea with a decadent piece of chocolate, your favourite bickie, or a traditional Dutch stroopwafle biscuit which is softened by placing it atop the cup.
Don’t be fooled by the afternoon moniker, all times are good for this tea. Though evenings are only for souls who can handle a caffeine kick after dark.
For a softer buzz
1 tsp per cup
3 – 5 min
Add 1 tsp of tea to a teapot. Pour in 200 ml of water boiled to 100°C. Steep for 3 – 5 min. Strain into cup. Sweeten to taste.
Brew it the traditional Dutch way
Boil freshly drawn ambient water in a teakettle to 100°C;. Warm a ceramic teapot by rinsing with the hot water. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup to the teapot and 1 for the pot. Pour in the hot water. Stir and steep covered for 3 – 5 min. Strain into cup. Sweeten to taste. Best served in your finest china with sugar on the side. If there is tea remaining in the pot, strain into another warmed teapot or if using an infuser, remove it from the pot to prevent any bitterness. Cover with a knitted tea cosy to keep warm. Enjoy on its own or with a piece of chocolate or a traditional stroopwafle biscuit by placing it atop the cup to allow the heat to soften it.
