Dear Daniel Safely received my items. Thank you so much for your speedy service. Will definitely come back to shop.
Guten Tag, Daniel!
Thank you for being about the only person who supplies a selection of Ostfriesentee to North America! Over the past few years I've kind of become addicted to the stuff, and yes, I do drink it in the traditional way, with cream on top and Kluntje or Kandis on the bottom. I'm not East Frisian myself; although my family comes from North Germany, mostly Pomerania and Old Brandenburg, and we grew up drinking lots of strong black tea.
Not sure which is my favorite product so far- they're all good. Probably good old Thiele Broken Silber is the one I usually gravitate to. I should mention that Upton Tea also imports a variety of Ostfriesentee that's really flavorful. Until I discovered your website, that was the only kind I could get, since everyone stopped importing Messmer brand.
This time I thought I'd try a couple of new products that I hadn't had before. I'll let you know what I think.
Anyway, danke sehr for continuing to make these wonderful teas available to us Amerikaner!
Mit herzlichen Grüssen aus sonnigem trockenem Kalifornien,
“Daniel, you're the best! I put a check in the mailbox for you just now. You should receive it this week. Have a great day.”
“My sister in-law in Oldenberg, Germany has been sending me this tea for years and I've never know where to get in State side. So happy to have found you. Please email the invoice total and I'll place a check in the mail.”
“Moin Daniel: Thank you so much for sending this order our right away. I ran out of Kluntzes this morning. Have a great day.
“Thanks for all you do. We really appreciate that you make these Ostfriesland traditions available to us here in the US.”
“I am soooooooooooooooooo looking forward to schluerping my tea. Thank you !”
“That tea is so amazing and I need very little to make a strong cup. Lasts a long time. When I was in Germany in October I bought some packages of Ostfriesen tea in bags but nothing to compare so I am finally running out and excited about receiving again. I will send you a check.”
“My wife's maternal grandmother's family were part owners of the Bunting Tea out of Leer, Germany. We went there last June but she ran out plus of the Kluntje that we purchased there. So I am glad that you carry this tea.”
“Thanks, Dan for the fast service. We've got tea left for just 4 days!”
“Thank you so much! My mother received the package on Valentine's Day! She was so happy! She told me I should tell you that you have beautiful handwriting! Hope you are staying warm! I'm drinking a hot cup of tea right now!
Hope to visit you soon!”
“THANK YOU FOR THE PROMPT SHIPMENT - IT IS SO COLD HERE AND A GOOD CUP OF TEA HELPS A LOT!”
I HAVE PLACED MY CHECK INTO THE MAIL THIS MORNING!
WITH KIND REEGARDS,
Thank you as always for your prompt and pleasant service. Loved chatting with you. And look forward to to the next order. Thanks so much for helping with research on tea set etc. Have a Happy Weekend!
I am sooooooooo excited to get this teapot and warmer! It is so beautiful, and very special! I will treasure it! So glad I learned about it before it was too late. Thank you!
Thank you for having your store. It keeps the memory of my family in Germany alive.
Thank you for this fun look at Ostfriesland tradition! My great-grandparents emigrated to US from there in the late 1870’s. I have been wanting to know more about the homeland they left behind. I know that they lived somewhere near the North Sea coast, and therefore I would like to know if I can order TWO of the North Sea tea tins (with Ostfriesen Gold tea, please!)
bin zufällig auf Ihre schöne Teeseite gestoßen, und habe ein Bestellformular als attachment beigefügt. Sind Sie vielleicht auf Paypal eingerichtet? Das wäre für mich am einfachsten. Natürlich kann ich auch per Scheck bezahlen.
mit den allerbesten Wünschen von einem gebürtigen Norderneyer, te
I stumbled upon your beautiful Teeseite, and have enclosed an order form as an attachment. Are you perhaps set up on Paypal? That would be the easiest for me. Of course I can also pay by check.
with the best wishes of a native Norderneyer
Hi- I placed an order this morning with you for some sugar and a gift set of tea - I see a UPS tag has been created and this will ship soon, but I have not gotten notification on how to pay for this order!!! Please let me know ASAP - I want to make sure you get your money!
Please email or mail invoice and I will pay preferably by check or cc.
Glad to hear from you. We were beginning to panic as our stash is running low. I have regularly purchased through Ms Marks in Iowa, but a relative visiting from Ostfriesland brought a supply a couple of years back, so we have not purchased from you yet.
Can’t function without our cup of Thiele.
Yes, I meant a whole other small box of tea. I had to laugh because here "tea" only means loose Thiele Silber Broken Tee. I went through almost two bags at Thanksgiving. So a small postal box of tea would be great.
Thank you so much for the speedy delivery of the tea package. I enjoyed already several cups of tea, and it was delicious.
You'll hear from me more in the future.
Thanks, and all the best.
Thank you for being there and providing a piece of the Old World for us!
Thanks for getting the tea together and shipped so quickly. I just made payment via credit card through the link you sent.
I am looking forward to receiving the tea. Some is for me and some is for a gift for my sister.
Lord willing, I will be back to order more when this tea is gone.
I hope all is well with you and your business. I wish you continued success.
I just wanted to tell you that we love your products! Thanks for the good selection, the good shipping, and the fair prices.
Thank you!!! You made my day!
Thank you, Daniel.
From me and from my Mother. You give wonderful service.
I just paid the invoice and look forward to receiving the shipment. This will be my husband's birthday present! I lived for many years close to Bremen, my parents are still there, and my husband has developed a liking to Ostfriesentee.
We were just at our church camp (I direct a week for families.) and all I could find was what I call “boutique tea.” Instead I would like to provide them with “the real thing” and send three boxes of your bagged East Frisian tea to them. Just choose three different brands and send them to the following address. Then just send me the bill and I will pay for it. Thanks much.
Our tea arrived in time for us to serve it for our family reunion. Thanks so much for the speedy delivery!
Thanks so much for the teapot. Just received the package. You should have your check
either today or Monday. Again, thanks for such speedy service.
I'll put that check in today's mail - thank you, we are scraping the bottom of the barrel!
Sophie loves her new teapot - she'll be heading off to college and couldn't image facing that w/out tea.
Looking forward to the package!!!
The package with the beautiful Ostfriesische Rose teacup and saucer arrived safely today. I love the smaller traditional size. That just means one gets to have more tea! I was looking for something to represent my Ostfriesen grandmother.
Moin und Vielen Dank für alles. My supply I picked up in Schortens in August is almost out. It's nice to know I can count on your shop to keep up my habit.
I'm looking forward to this so much. I've missed this tea terribly since I moved back from Germany 6 months ago. It will make me very happy & cozy as the cold season FINALLY starts to set in here in California. Thank you! Best, Jennifer
I am the daughter of Jane McCormick, in Pocahontas, IA. She is so thankful that you have this shop and she is able to keep her family's heritage alive for my sister and I. Drinking German tea brings me fond memories from my childhood. I also thank you for helping keep this tradition alive in our family!
Your package arrived , and I have already enjoyed a good cup of Ostfriesen tea with the kandis.
Thanks for having it available for those of us who cherish and enjoy the goodies.
All the best,
I am very happy to have found your website. When I moved back to the U.S., I brought some bags with me, but I consumed them without any hope of having this tea again.
Thank you so much for your great service! My box arrived the day after you sent it!
Mailed the check, got someone else introduced to the tea! Hence the three bags!
Thank you SO much for responding to my request for more tea so quickly! I'm thrilled that you're able to fit an extra box in when shipping it! I'll get you paid shortly! I'm thankful that you're able to "feed my tea addiction"
"A Home without Tea is merely a House." We saw this sign in Ireland a few years ago.
Hi Daniel, Love the prayer picture. Quality is outstanding. Beautiful craftsmanship. Mom was so happy. Thanks.
Thank-you again for your prompt service. We're getting low on tea so time to order again. Also I've been tempted by the Moin, Moin Teacup for sometime now. I have two old teacups that were used by my grandmother in Ostfriesland. The pattern looks very similar. Is this a typical pattern used in the area? Once I receive the order I'll see if I'm tempted to order more.
Hi Daniel, I received my tea set and I love it. Everything looks great. Thank you. Looking forward to the rest.
Thank you Daniel for prompt delivery and for what you do to keep these teas, etc., available
“Thank you...I'm looking forward to having some REAL tee!”
“I'm going to order some other items anyway, which caused me to inquire about the teapot. By the way, your tea tins and kandis combo gifts were nice little gifts for friends at Christmas, both unusual and thoughtful for tea drinkers.”
“Moin! Bin zwar ursprünglich aus Süddeutschland, aber der Tee ist ein Geburtstagsgeschenk für meine Frau, die eine echte Ostfriesin ist Mit besten Grüssen”
“Hello! Although I'm originally from Southern Germany, but the tea is a birthday present for my wife, who is a real East Frisian Best Regards.”
Until two years ago my husband and maintained a second home in the small village of Westrum. Just outside of Jever We had our home for eleven years. Tee trinken ist zehr beliebt in Friesland! So glad to have found you!!!!
Daniel, Thank you for getting me the tea. My parents are so happy! Happy New Year!
A dear friend of ours turned us on to this tea. She also taught us the proper way to drink it. She recently lost her home and all her belongings in the Butte fire here in California so we are getting this for her for Christmas, so we are hoping that you can get it to us by then. Thank you
“Thanks for sending so quickly, Daniel! I look forward to enjoying for the holidays with the rest of the Ostfriesen descendants in my family. Happy holidays.”
The Blau Dresmer tea cups were a huge hit for my husband's birthday. He was so happy and surprised! Thank you!
It came yesterday and all was well. Shall enjoy my Thiele Tee with Kluntje this coming Sunday.
Thanks again, Dan
Thank you, Daniel. I just paid for the order so you didn't have to wait for a check. I appreciate the way you do business! Can't wait for my Wallendorf pieces!
Thank you, Daniel, I'm looking forward to receiving the package. It will be like an early Christmas!
“Thank you so much!
Your/ my package arrived today, with all the goodies. I do appreciate doing business with you.
“I won't be coming to the conference, and my supply is getting low! The tea is good and your service is Great. I prefer to send a check. Thanks” IA
“We just paid the invoice using the online link.
Thanks for sending the tea out so quickly. “
“Dear Dan: I sent your payment using the link, and appreciate your speedy response in mailing the package. We look forward to our first cup of tea from Friesland.” Vielen Dank!
“Hello Daniel, it's time for me to order more tea. I am so glad that I can get my favorite tea here in the US, too. “
“My mother was born in Emden Germany. I had the opportunity to visit there for the first time about 2 months ago. I have been wanting the Ostfriesland Blau teeservice for a long time and started searching for it when I got home. I never expected to find a tea shop that specialized in Ostfriesland designs and products in Madison Wisconsin! I am originally from Southeastern Wisconsin ...Milwaukee, having been the last address I had before moving South. Thank you for being there. I hope we will do business together in the future.” SC
“I would like to order my usual 6 boxes of 50 bag Grungold tea. My 11 year old daughter is just as addicted to it as I am.”
“Thanks very much for the quick order processing. I received the package before I even had a chance to pay this invoice, so I just paid the invoice today.” Craig, CA
Moin! Und vielen Dank! Ich habe Kluntjes geschenkt gekriegt, und was kann ich denn sonst damit machen? Ausserdem, habe ich eine kleine Deutsch Klasse, und wir wollen am letzen Tag eine Teeparty machen. :)
Hello! And thank you very much! I got a gift Kluntjes, and what can I do with it otherwise? In addition, I have a small German class, and we want to make a tea party on the last day. :)
“I see where you are nicely stocked with the new Warnecke porcelain! This winter I ordered a Wallendorf bowl in the Dresmer blue pattern as a gift. I would now like to add to it with one Warnecke Frisian blue teacup and saucer.” IA
I love the Spitztute tea. I start every day with a large cup of Spitztute.
Just letting you know that the package arrived a little while ago. I am going to use it for my afternoon tea break. Thanks for the prompt service! Johanna
I just love OstfriesenTee it is a reminder of my growing up in Ostfriesland.Thank you Daniel
Thank You. I now have a source for or tea and accessories.
“Thank you so much!! We have family in Emden who would buy and send us tea and kluntje. We would only drink our tea on special occasions as it is expensive to ship! Now, we can enjoy tea all year long and introduce our friends to our family traditions! We still keep in touch with our family in Emden and now other parts of Germany! Our family from Germany came to the United States in 2011 when my husband and I were married and gave us the Osfriesische Rose tea set. I am so happy that you carry the pieces! We have not used it because we were scared to break it and not be able to replace it. We are hoping that some day we will get to visit your tea shop! Again, Thank you for all that you do and offer!!!”
“Thanks for processing my order. My wife and I have ordered from you before, and we appreciate your work. I am originally from the Parkersburg, Iowa area and were customers of Lillian Marks for many years. Being able to have a kopke tee with kluntje like I did as a child with Oma, my parents and my older relatives … these are very special memories for me. I can’t wait to introduce my little Henrik to the practice when he is a little older. Thanks for keeping the traditions alive! It’s important : )”
Daniel, “ It is time to order more tea, but, I am going to ask for one package of Bunting Tee Grunpack loose tea for 250gr.
As always, thanks for your help. Trying real tea leaves these days!”
“Thank you so much, Daniel! I just made the payment, sorry for the delay. I'm excited to show American friends the "ostfriesische Teekunst".
Moin, Moin, Daniel.
Thank you for your reply.
I will go and try this today.
Have a lovely day and Thank you for offering a bit of Ostfriesland(:
My parents live in Aurich and I love visiting them, it is such a beautiful place to go.
Miss the teas..
“The order is for the Heritage Center, we will be hosting a Germans in Iowa display from the U of IA the first part of March and will be serving tea so I'm not sure it matters. We wanted some tea bags to back up our loose tea (we are short on help and want to be prepared if we get swamped) and perhaps give a box away as a door prize. You are the expert, I'll let you choose. Thanks.”
“Since so many people in the office enjoyed the tea, here I am ordering again:-) Thanks for shipping expedited last time.”
“Hello Daniel! I hope all is well with you! Please send this order to my mother to the above address. Thank you so much!“
“Just wanted to thank you for your quick service and let you know that I received my package yesterday :)
I wish you a very happy holidays and a prosperous new year.”
“Danke recht herzlich, Daniel. As always, it's been a pleasant experience doing business with you. Wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas and the very best for 2017.”
“And once again it's time to stock up on tea. Thank you for being a reliable source for this delicious elixir :-)”
I received the package on Monday. Thanks so much.
The card describing the tea ceremony is awesome. The picture on the front is from the area where my father grew up. Whereas, my mother grew up in Rysum.
Do you sell these cards?
Hope you're having a good time on your trip. We leave on October 18th which just two weeks away.
Mit größter Dankbarkeit! I'm so grateful that Dan maintains this online shop and makes this wonderful but hard-to-find tea available in America. Ostfriesentee has become a welcome part of my life, and I look forward to my tea breaks with cheerful anticipation. Thanks Dan, keep up the good work! Danke sehr!
“Thanks, Daniel, for your quick response. I’ll be back!”
“My package arrived Monday in good condition, and excellently and carefully packed. Thank you for the care in ensuring safe delivery.”
“So happy was I to find your little website! Usually I depend on a friend in Germany to send my tea, but I thought I would try again online! I hope you will keep bringing it in!”
“As always such a quick response. Thank You!
“One of my favorite childhood memories is tea with Kluntje and I always wanted my daughter to be able to grow up with it as well. She is 8 now and very over protective of the Kluntje jar. I can't wait to see her face when we get the order and she sees all the Kluntje!”
“I really really appreciate you sending me the tea. I didn't get to pay for it and I would like to pay for the items that you sent me. This really means a lot to me it brings me back to my grandmother and Germany that I visited last summer. thank you so much.”
“Thank you! Merry Christmas to you and your family. I really appreciate your superior service, Daniel.”
“Thank you! I received my shipment today and looking forward to nice hot cup of delicious tea!!!!”
“Just had my first cup of Thiele. It is as good as I remember. Thanks.”
“Moin Daniel! Hope you are still selling these items! I bought some Wallendorfer from you and I love it so! Let me know if these teas, tins, and rock kandis are available. Thank you!”
“Moin! I was so happy to stumble on your sight. I am almost out of the tea I bought when we were in Germany this April.”
“I received my order today. Thank you very much. I am so grateful you continue to operate the tea shop.”
“Thank you, Daniel, for the exceptional service.
Have a great weekend!”
“I am so happy I found your tea shop. After having lived in the US for many years I always missed a good cup of authentic ‘Ostfriesentee’. Next time I am in Madison (my daughter lives there) , I plan to stop by your shop.”
“Guten Tag, wir gebrauchen wieder Tee und Kandis und freuen uns schon auf das Paket”
“Moin, Daniel, thanks for recommending the Diamant Kluntje to me! Could you please send me a medium flat rate box filled with the Diamant Kluntje? Thanks so much! Let me know the cost and I will send you a check.”
“Time to stock up again! Hope you are doing well! I want to try the Kloenstunden tee and the Friesen Gold, so will order the smaller amounts this time.”
“I am very happy to have found your website and service you offer. My son is a huge fan, but the only time we get the Bunting tea or klunchjes is when a relative visits from Ostfriestland or we take a trip to visit. Last batch has been several years, so you are providing the opportunity to receive product on a regular basis.”
“We first tasted this tea in Lubeck, and loved it, but could never find it here. We were delighted to chance upon your website and see the blue box.”
“I put the check in the mail this morning. I received the order today. That was fast! Everything look great! Now everyone will have a gift of tea for Mother’s Day!”
Enjoy this Spring weather!
So happy I found your business! I usually have a friend from Germany pack my tea rations when she visits annually!
“I enjoyed Opas Schiitwetter Tee this past winter. But for now, I'm nearly out of Onno Behrends and Thiele blends and am completely out of Bünting Grünpack, and need to replenish my Frisian tea. I will try the Teekanne brand this time.”
Moin Daniel, I hope this order finds you well and things going smoothly for you!
“Thank you Daniel for your superior service. It's always great to do business with you. So glad you're carrying our favorite tea and of course the Kluntjes - the tea wouldn't be the same without it.”
We are so pleased! How wonderful to finally find the proper cream spoon in the US. And you packaged these items so beautifully it felt like Christmas -- even the plain newspaper had crisp folds!
Thank you for selling these items. Last time I ordered the tea came so fast.
Hope to see you at the conference.
I've always enjoyed these teas, especially at breakfast (full flavor)!
“Kluntjes are hard to find!”
“Thank you for the information. My husband and I will have to coordinate a trip to Madison early next year. We were interested in the Frisian Blue teapot and cups. I am happy to order the various teas online and will be in touch early next year for the tea, too.”
“Thank you again for offering such a fantastic variety of teas. I have been struggling to find a way to have small amounts of tea shipped from Germany (as compared to the amounts a vendor might order) and am thrilled to have a local option.”
“My entire family and all my friends love the Weihnachts Tee! I must keep it stocked! My niece likes it so much I had to give her a bag of it.”
“Everything arrived! Thank you very much. This time, however, I got a real treat and a drive down memory lane. This time I received the original Kluntje that we always had at home when I was growing up; the big ones that we had to wack sometimes to split the rock. :-)”
“Thank you Daniel - I have not placed an order in a long time. We have been to Germany and last summer my parent's exchanged student brought us sugar. We are low on everything and we have introduced tea drinking to a number of our friends. These will make great gifts!”
“Thank you for your reply with the information! I would like to get the 10 boxes of tea, please. We love the tea, so it will be wonderful to have more. Last year I met a Schmidt cousin (many times removed) that had visited our relatives in Germany and brought the tea back with her and she shared it with my husband and me. We loved it, so I went searching for it. Actually, I looked in Germany in October for it, but we were not in the northern part and could not find it elsewhere. Thank you very much for offering it online! Please let me know the total cost and I will give a credit card for payment.”
“Got the tea and sugar. Thanks for great service. It was here Monday.”
“Thank you for the quick reply and shipping! Happy Holidays”
“Do you still have Thiele Tee in tea bags in a 50 count box? I would like to order 2 boxes. My father was from Ostfriesland and I have the above dishes. Please let me know. THANKS”
“I am so happy you are selling this tea!
Herzliche Gruesse! “This order is urgent - we are all out!
In a few days I plan to mail a list of friends I would like to mail your gift bags to, like in previous years. Many thanks in advance!”
“Love the fact I can buy this tea in the U.S. I am seriously addicted! I plan to mail a check once you tell me how much I owe.”
“Moin moin Daniel. Horror of horrors, I just noticed that my tea supply is somewhat low :-) Here is another order. Thank you so much for provideng such a valuable service for us American 'Ossies'.”
“I just visited Sachsen, Thüringen and Sachsen-Anhalt. It has put me in the mood to buy more tea. Hope to some day be able to visit Ostfriesen.”
Thanks for the products you provide,
“I have just paid the invoice for this order using the online link. Thank you for your help and for sending that out so quickly. Much appreciated!”
“Excited to have found your site! No more lugging bags of tea through customs and possibly have them confiscated!”
The teacup and saucer arrived safely. It is so precious!
"Thanks from the bottom of my teacup."
“This is wonderful to hear....Looking forward to receiving the teacup and saucer.
My great-great-grandmother was married in Ostfriesland and received a Bride and a Groom teacup set for a wedding gift with the following quote hand painted on the saucer: “Ostfriesische Gemütlichkeit hält stets ein Tässchen Tee bereit.” Thank you for your wonderful tee products and for keeping the tradition alive for my generation.”
“Mein Mann ist Ostfriese (aus Pewsum). Wir sind froh Ihre Webseite gefunden zu haben, es geht nichts ueber die richtige Ostfriesenteemischung.”
“My husband is Ostfriese (from Pewsum). We are glad to have found your website, there is nothing above the right East Frisian blends.”
“Thanks for the lovely box of goodies and tee! It was a joy to unpack and to think of my great-great-grandpa, a Captain on the North Sea, drinking a delightful cup of tee.”
“Thanks for taking my order by phone. Thanks for providing these delightful resources to us in the USA...especially for those of us who trace their roots back to Ostfriesland.
Have a great day with tee.”
“I have ordered from you before. I bought some Ostfreisen tea in Germany when I was there in Feb., but do not care for it as much as this Buenting .... will try this Friesen Gold also. Thank you!”
