An East Friesian black tea blend with a strong body and flavor

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.

Best East Friesian I've ever had

Unique. Different. Extraordinary. Strong. Very strong. I drink it straight, without sugar or milk. I love it.

Excellent brew

I was intrigued by the description of the tea and its links to specific parts of Germany (my great-grandparents were from Bremen and Bremerhaven, but my previous experience with tea companies have been all American or British). And I like strong teas, so why not try it. It is delightful - the kind of strength that is due to the blend instead of oversteeping. I didn't try it as recommended (with the rock sugar), since I tend to prefer my tea black and don't have rock sugar. But that treatment would not overpower this tea.
