    I was very happy to discover this blend at Short and Stout. Growing up in Germany, we were served East Fresian Blend in the little Cafés along the North Sea coast while on vacation. My favorite way to drink it is with dark rock sugar (brown Kandis) and a little milk or cream. Try a thin walled porcelain tea cup instead of a sturdy mug. It makes it taste even more perfect.

    This is my favorite tea at Short and Stout. It is robust and malty, but has an interesting almost floral note to it, and that combination really sets it apart. I like it with lots of milk. I also like my tea very strong, and it stands up well to long steeping.
