East Frisian tea. Neither shaken nor stirred.

To this day it remains customary to offer tea to visitors in East Friesland – always served with a piece of rock sugar and a spoonful of cream. Then all you need to drink it is a steady hand, because genuine East Frisian tea must be neither stirred, nor shaken. Only then can you appreciate all three stages of this teatime delight: mild and creamy to start, bitter in the middle with a sweet, sugary finish. For an introduction to the East Frisian tea ceremony, head to the Tea Museum in Norden or any of the charming little cafés along the coast.
