But first, tea. Jade, take it away!
Homemade Chai served in an oasis
Remember when the only time you drank a Chai, was at your local Indian Restaurant? Well, those days are long gone and today your daily shot of Chai is never more than a few feet away.
But, finding a good Chai Latte in Amsterdam can still be a real challenge. I’m talking about the one that is homemade, with lots of love and full of tasty spices.
Luckily, at Dignita Hoftuin they understand how to serve a great Chai and their gorgeous garden makes for the perfect peaceful oasis to enjoy it.
Meet the Matcha Mafia
Craving a delicious Matcha tea or curious to try one? Then you should definitely head over to Matcha Mafia. I’ve tasted many Matcha’s before and there’s no one that makes it better than the Mafia. I promise I’m not just saying that because of who we’re dealing with here!
Matcha tea is super healthy for you and gives you that kick you need while lasting throughout your day. At Matcha Mafia, you get to choose from many delicious flavors such as Minty, Choco Spice and even one called Purple Haze with the relaxing combination of CBD and lavender.
A real Asian High Tea
If you’re up for an Asian High Tea with a funky vibe, you are going to love this one! Happyhappyjoyjoy is an amazing colorful hotspot that serves some delicious street-food and a very flavourful Jasmine tea.
Instead of your standard sugary sweets, this Asian high tea comes with a basket full of mini baos, gyoza, spring rolls, layered cake, and sweet sticky rice. YUM!
A Gem for Ginger Tea
Welcome to Ginger & Gems, a cute little food boutique where they add a sparkle of fresh ginger in everything they serve. Including a delicious cup of fresh ginger tea and ginger latte.
If you really want to satisfy your ginger cravings, make sure to order some of their yummy food with your tea like ginger sandwiches, ginger cakes, ginger toasties, ginger… you get the picture 😉
Colorful Bubble Tea
When you find yourself in Amsterdam Chinatown (Nieuwmarkt), make sure to treat yourself to some colorful bubble tea at the YOYO! Fresh Tea Bar.
YOYO’s bubble tea comes in many different flavors and includes various yummy toppings. If bubble tea is not your thing, I’m pretty sure their classic milk tea or fresh ice tea can satisfy your tea cravings. They even serve some premium tea mocktails such as a Piña Colada Tea and the Watermelon Perfection.
The Duchess Tea Room
If you want to experience a super fancy afternoon tea, then The Duchess Tea Room should be on top of your list. Their extravagant displays are filled with delicate pastries like handmade macarons and are accompanied by one of the finest Mariage Frères Tea blends.
When you feel like you’ve earned some bubbles, you can also enjoy a selection of exclusive champagnes with your high tea. So, dust off those high heels and go for it!
Tea & Brunch at Lavinia
When you’re not only craving some yummy tea but also a delicious healthy brunch, Lavinia Good Food is your new favorite spot in Amsterdam.
Tea lovers drink your heart out! Besides the pure taste of their April’s Natural Whole Leaf Tea, they also serve fresh Morrocan mint tea, ginger and lemon tea, Chai latte with almond milk and Matcha green tea Latte with coconut milk.
Tea with ambiance at Cecconi’s
You might have heard of this fancy modern Italian restaurant because Cecconi’s is pretty famous amongst influencers and celebrities. The restaurant in Amsterdam is located in a beautiful spot in the 1930s Bungehuis building on the Singel canal.
Cecconi’s serves a delicious organic Indian tea blend and you get to sip from it in their beautiful interior and amazing ambiance.
Tea & Zen at Gartine
Gartine is housed in a tiny 16th-century monumental building and offers a cosy peaceful oasis in the middle of the buzzing city center. This place is a feast for all tea-lovers and serves the delicious tea of Betjeman and Barton.
When you’re looking for some Zen during your shopping spree in Amsterdam, I’m pretty sure you’ll love drinking some tea here. In the afternoon, Gartine offers a high tea with both sweet and savory dishes made with fresh produce from their own garden.
Tea Tasting at Tea in the City
At Tea in the City, they believe that drinking great tea is a lifestyle and I can’t agree with them more. When you’re done buying ALL THE TEA in their lovely little shop, you can visit the cozy Tea Room Upstairs for a Tea for one with cake.
If you rather go on a luxurious tea journey, I recommend booking the Tea-tasting or Afternoon Tea in the City. This tea and food masterclass will introduce you to seven of the finest tea from the Betjeman & Barton Collection and comes with scones and cupcakes. Life will never be the same again 😉
I wish you a wonderful and super tasty time in Amsterdam.
