Frisian tea culture dates back to the beginning of the 17th century with the first import of the Dutch East India Company, who introduced tea to Germany as a medicinal product. It was not long before it gained popularity and became a commonplace in the East Frisian home, served to visitors or with every meal, the saying goes drinking it at least three times a day is the East Frisian way. This blend type has a distinctly strong body, color and flavour, that comes from a blend of strong black teas with a dominant ingredient of tea from Assam. It is fondly served in small porcelain cups with cream sweetened with kluntjes, a rock candy sugar that melts slowly, ensuring every cup has sweet kick.
