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

Dark & Stormy is an homage to the beautiful coastline of Frisia, a coastal part of Germany famous for its passionate tea consumption and tea culture. This East Frisian tea blend is best consumed the traditional way, with kluntje (a type of rock sugar) and milk or cream.

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.

Average Tea

In my opinion this one is nothing special. Although quite long brewing time (4 min for each infusion) there is nothing interesting about the taste. Every cup goes unnoticed for me. In abundance of great products available at P&T, I recommend to skip this one.

Good strong tea

I like it with milk no sugar, not too strong without milk either. One of my basic teas that I rotate with other stronger black teas.

Rauchig und kräftig

Schön kräftiger, rauchiger Schwarztee! Schliesst man die Augen, fühlt man den Meereswind im Gesicht…
