This fun tea- and ceramics store is situated in a remarkable spot, namely the smallest house in Amsterdam, with an area of only 10 square meters (2x5). You'll find many Dutch specialties here, and tea. The tea collection consists of no less than 100 flavors. Besides the traditional (biological) Chinese, Indian, and Japanese teas, you'll also find an ever-changing collection of (seasonal) teas and herbal infusions. The flavors vary from rooibos and diverse fruit melanges to green, black, and white tea. Besides that you can find tea accessories and gadgets here, as well as china, a small selection of coffee, and delicious Dutch chocolate, cookies, liquor, advocat, and other local delicacies, all made in an old-fashioned manner by craftsmen. There are also cute porcelain miniatures, made specially by Royal Goedewaagen.
Tea and other accessories are combined with a piece of Amsterdam history in a delightful manner. Tea lovers feel completely at home here; locals, expats, tourists, students, foodies, young mothers, and lovers of ceramics or old-fashioned Dutch products. Of course, you can also come here for a fun gift.
The house is located on the Oude Hoogstraat (number 22), in the heart of Amsterdam. You'll find the street on the edge of the Wallen, around the corner of the Dam monument, and nearby the Nieuwmarkt and Rembrandt square. The smallest house of Amsterdam is a sight to be seen by itself - the collection seamlessly matches the atmosphere of this small building, and breathes the character of the small spices- and delicatessen stores of yore. It's a must for anyone who's into nostalgia.
