Nowhere in the world do they drink more tea than here. The ceremony of preparing our Frisian tea is considered a recognized cultural heritage. A blend of Ceylon, Assam and Darjeeling - and the tea is drunk from thin and fine cups.
During your holiday you can enjoy a cup of genuine Frisian tea or a visit to our cosy Friesenschänke.
So that you do not have to do without our tea after your visit to Norderney, follow these instructions.
You need: Frisian tea, Kluntjes (coarse white candy), cream, a tea set, preferably with a Tulle sieve. A Tulle sieve prevents the tea leaves from being washed into the cups. Even if it harms the aroma a little: of course, it also works with a standard tea sieve
Rinse the teapot with hot water and add one teaspoon of tea per person. An extra one for the pot itself.
Pour boiling water over the tea leaves until they are just covered and let the tea brew for about five minutes. If too much water is added, Frisians speak of “offsoppen tea”.
Then fill the pot with boiling water according to the number of cups you want to pour and place it on a warmer.
Now a piece of candy is added to the cups, followed by the tea, then some cream with a cream spoon and stir with careful circular movement. This is the only way to create the clouds.
