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.

Aroma is rich, malty but also vegetal, slightly roasty, suggesting...

This tea was great! I loved how roasty it was and how it didn't have a bitter taste to it. This was a good tea for my first German tea experience. Yum. :)

I didn't really enjoy this tea, but my spouse did. She liked the sweetness of it. To me it tasted a bit odd, maybe because of the sweetness...
