I hope your tea atleast contained a cinnamon flavour
The moment I saw that it was a herbal infusion, it was no longer an option for me. :P

there's a lot of (old) companies who have the most exellent tea!
There are -- luckily we can get some good tea from the Simon Levelt in town. They know us by now.
But in most restaurants or cafés, good tea is just not available. Even in specialised coffeehouses (which one would presume to care deeply about all caffeinated hot beverages), tea is something of an afterthought. Which is dissapointing...

I've been on frequent afternoon tea's and rest assured that tea houses are the place to go.. not coffee houses ;)

My favourite tea is imported and blended by De Pelikaan
http://www.de-pelikaan.nl/ China Melange nr. 7 is a personal favourite, mmm :)

And my favourite tea house is The Hoesthinkhof. http://www.hoestinkhof.nl/pagina/nl/4/3/engels-theehuis.html

It's not really in the neighbourhood, but if you're ever feeling adventurous, I highly recommend it.

Enschede now also has a Simon Levelt since a couple of months, a bit closer to home than the other options.

Melanges with a bit of Lapsang are pretty good, yes. :)

Simon Levelt is where we get our tea. We buy the Keemun Congou in bags of half a kilo. :P
