Theefabriek in Houwerzijl/ Great tea museum in Groningen

The "Theefabriek" is located in an old church in the tiny village Houwerzijl. It represents the only tea museum in the Netherlands. A beautiful garden welcomes the visitos to have a tea outside, after one had visited the museum and enjoyed the huge tea shop with over 500 different tea sorts...
A must for all tea-lovers spending a day in the Dutch province Groningen!

@dear all: thanks for the compliments and nice words:-)
@dear Filipina Ini: the 300 kinds includes black, green, white tea as well as herbal and rooibos and next to this all kinds of parfumed green or black tea plus mixes of green/black tea with different local herbs and flowers (from the last kind I got 2 different ones: one is called Engels and the second Inspiration)....the mixes are done by the Theefarbriek themselves;
