Re: [SA-Tea-Enthusiasts] How to brew high-quality black tea

I brought what I have of the Frisian tea back with me and import Twinings Lapsang Souchong from England via the Internet. Frisian tea [Bünting brand] is also available via the Internet. http://versand.buenting-tee.de//Echter_Ostfriesentee/
If anyone wants help with the German, just ask!

ps: found one picture of a tea service:

Sheila, where do you purchase the tea blend that you use, and is it really quite strong or do you use extra leaf when brewing it?

I actually just found the clip on line after seeing your post. I just spent some time in Ostfriesland looking up ancestors [found a 5th cousin] and enjoying the culture. When I met my cousin and his wife, they treated me to the traditional Ostfriesland afternoon tea, complete with ceremony. The traditional tea service is quite special as well, including a small stove [with tea light] to keep the tea warm. It seems as if almost every Ostfriesan woman has a traditional tea service--everyone I met described theirs to me! Apparently there are two traditional rose patterns--one with a rosebud and one with an open rose. These sets were made either in Germany or Japan and hand painted. The last manufacturer quit in 1999, but the demand was so great that another company now makes the pattern, although it is no longer hand painted.
So I decided to get me a tea service. I ordered a new one from a store there and eagerly await its arrival. To my great surprise, I found a teapot, stove, and two cups and saucers in an antique store in Germany and bought them. Prior to my recent trip, I had searched in vane on eBay for pieces of this pattern. Last week someone finally put some of the old china up, so I could complete my antique, hand-painted set as well.
I also bought the candies [Kluntjes] and the special spoon for the cream. Some time I will have to bring you my china and make you some of my tea--Ostfrisian style! A big part of that tea is the company while drinking it.

Hi Sheila,

What a lovely video! The food looks as scrumptious as the tea. Are those folks someone you know, or perhaps you are in the video yourself? Thank you for posting the link to us. It is very educational and fun.

I have the East Frisian Leaf Blend from K-Teas. I will be happy to mail a sample of the tea to any SATHE member who requests one, providing they are current on their $5/yr suggested contribution to the group. If you wish to buy some of it, follow the link given in my new tea review with slide show: 

Thanks, Sheila, for reminding me I had this blend in my queue. It is very tasty.

I learned to drink it [and love it] in Germany on my last visit!

[the only parts needing translation are steep about four minutes, don't stir the tea, and put your spoon in your cup when you don't want any more tea]

A new video shows how to steep black tea in both Western and Eastern styles. The video uses Golden Fleece black tea from Verdant, but the method is applicable to any high-quality black tea leaf.
