The question "Lust auf Kaffeesieren?" which loosely translates to "Fancy a cup of coffee?" is often heard in Bremen, but what about tea? The Hanseatic city's tea tradition goes back to the merchants of Bremen. In addition to tobacco, coffee and fish, the people here also traded in tea. And whether it's a warming cup in winter or a refreshing blend in summer: we'll tell you in which tea room and tea store leaves, buds, flowers, fruits, bark, roots and stems unfold into aromatic tea variations and find their way into your cup.

The longest cough sweet in the world is a tea? Precisely this taste of peppermint and aniseed has been captured in a tea variety by the team at the Martinshof: the Babbeler Tee.They also offer various products for your breakfast at home all associated with the weekly Senate breakfast in the Rathaus: Senate coffee, Senate jam and of course, Senate tea, too.
