Ostfriesen tea, spelled Ostfriesentee in German, and sometimes called East Frisian is a strong blend of black tea that originated in East Frisia, a region in the north coast of Germany.

Like other black tea blends such as English Breakfast, the exact blend used to make Ostfriesen tea varies, and the tea is characterized more by its strength and flavor rather than its ingredients. However, Ostfriesen tea often contains Assam and frequently contains Ceylon and/or Darjeeling black tea as well. Also like other breakfast teas, this blend can be made of whole leaf tea or broken-leaf tea, and can be made of orthodox or CTC tea.

An excellent blend for an excellent price, that I can see pleasing both connoisseurs and lovers of strong black teas. Potent but smooth and also complex.

Dry leaf, which is intact and wiry, has a very pleasing aroma with strong vegetal notes.

Upon brewing, produces a dark, rich, but mellow cup which reminds me a...

A strong black tea blend of very good quality. Another sample brought back from Germany.

Brews up a rich, dark cup that is only moderately aromatic. The aroma is very malty and slightly vegetal. The flavor is very smooth up-front, but there's a tannic edge towards the end of the sip, which I found quite pleasant....
