The National Drink of East Frisia


Outside a north-west wind is blowing. Wind force 7. The wind scatters small fluffy white clouds across the sky. This is the best possible time to enjoy a cup of the East-Frisians’ favourite beverage. Tea made in the East-Frisian style unfolds a deeply pleasant warmth: it is both soothing and revitalising. The best way to learn more about how to drink tea East-Frisian style and the history of this popular beverage is to take a trip to the Tea Region of East Frisia, where the teapot never gets cold.
