A day in Ghent can be a nice touristic experience when in Belgium. Even though you have to dig in inside the city to see some more, but in just one day I did enough of sightseeing and shopping and have encountered a new Dutch tea brand called Simon Levelt. They have a shop right in the center near the Ghent castle Gravensteen.
Tea and coffee brand Simon Levelt established almost 200 years ago (in 1817!) in Amsterdam is a perfect place for those looking for premium tea and coffee. Simon Levelt focuses on both high quality and organic products as they work with fair trade organizations to offer many types of organic tea. I came back with a nice bag of goodies bought for affordable prices!
