Strong and robust, the German brew is perfect for those who like their tea hot with just a touch of sweetener to lift the black leaf flavour. The true East Frisian way is to drop a rock sugar candy into your cup, followed by the tea and a spoonful of cream poured carefully to create a floating cloud. Then you sip the stratified tea without stirring, enjoying creaminess, tea and then sweetness.
Traditional, espresso-sized fine china. If you don’t have an espresso-sized cup on hand, of course, your favourite tea cup will do!
Pairs Well With
A few quiet moments and its own delectable self. Also matches wonderfully with spiced biscuits, butter biscuits, or any of your favourite German cream cakes (Friesentorte is perfection).
Unbound by seasons or times of day, this tea is a treat to be enjoyed at any moment you desire it. Though the evening is only for those souls who can handle a late-night caffeine kick.

Brew it the traditional German 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 enough hot water to cover the leaves. Stir and steep covered for 3 – 5 min. Fill the teapot with the remainder of the hot water. Strain into cup. Sweeten to taste. Best served in traditional small espresso-sized tea cups. To serve, place a rock sugar cube (kluntjes - if it’s handy) into the bottom of your cup and then pour the tea, which should make a crackling noise, marking the start of the ceremony! Follow with a spoonful of cream gently lowered into the tea to form a "cloud" (wulkje). Sip unstirred in three layers; the cream, the tea and finally the sweetness. Enjoy on its own or with spiced or butter biscuits or a cream cake such as Friesentorte.
