I'm a little Friesian boy and live behind the dike
Our friend Thorn from East Friesland developed the secret recipe for "Easy Friesy" with us: fine organic black teas from Africa and India tell of eventful and modern times. This real "tea story" began with colonization and was always closely linked to the development of trade and the race of sailing fleets for ever shorter routes from Asia and Africa to Europe. Today, in the modern tea culture of samova, we honor this specialty as the most experienced in decelerating. Only a few insiders know that light beer from Hamburg was originally considered the main drink and food in East Frisia until reports of a decline in customs and work declined in the 16th and 17th centuries. Protestant preachers then praised tea as a God-given drink "against the devil" and the aromatic hot drink became popular among the population as a healthy alternative to beer. To date, no people drink more tea than the East Frisians, who - statistically speaking - enjoy around 300 liters per head per year. In December 2016, the German UNESCO Commission included the East Frisian tea ceremony in the nationwide directory of intangible cultural heritage. According to this, tea culture has an identity-creating function, structures everyday life and daily rhythms, creates social cohesion and is a recognition feature for the region.

First a »Kluntje« (sugar candy) is placed in the drinking vessel. Then you pour the hot tea on it - the sugar crackles. Finally comes the »wulkje«, the »cream cloud«: the cream is carefully placed on the tea with a spoon against the clock (as a slow-down ritual). Small clouds now form from the depths of the porcelain cup (or samova glass). Stirring is not common - this stems from the time when the Kluntje was very expensive and should not dissolve so quickly. In addition, you can drink the tea in three layers - first there is the cream, then the strong tea and finally the sweetness of the »Kluntje«. Three servings are Ostfriesenrecht and are refilled without being asked. Those who can no longer drink afterwards place or put their spoon in the drinking vessel.
