Teazone and its tea hotel in Maastricht

My last catch of 2017 was Teazone in Maastricht. This Dutch teahouse serves premium teas from three famous Parisian tea brands Kusmi, Damman and Theodor. A genuine touch is a Dutch-designed teaware used for serving tea and also available for sale.

Quirky tea cups, also available to buy

The world in a cup

With anything from plain black, green or flavoured teas to South African rooibos and Argentinian mate, Teazone fulfils their motto “The world in a cup”. And oh the cakes! Homebaked cakes and pies are mouthwatering, including healthy and vegan options too. But you can never go wrong if you pick scones – unrivalled tea companion, in my opinion, comes with clotted cream and jam and concludes the perfect afternoon tea the English way. So yes, they have them too!

Dutch designed teaware and more

And you won’t leave Teazone empty-handed! They sell their quirky teaware, some of their interior furniture and exotic lifestyle accessories. Some items have come all the way from Brazil, India or Egypt. I liked the concept of “you try before you buy”.

Bouteaque Hotel

Just on the other side of the square, 100 meters away from the teahouse, you’ll find a five-room hotel by same Teazone owners. The Bouteaque Hotel was inspired by tea and upon check-in, which you do at the teashop, you’ll be offered some Teazone treats. The Hotel supports a reforestation project in the Philippines so each night spent at this hotel means a tree planted in the affected area.

Please note that I haven’t stayed at this hotel yet but I wanted to include it because it’s part of the entire Teazone concept. Plus it’s cool – already waiting for next occasion to come back!

Teajay, play some music!

Last but not least, Teazone has one more project – a tea mobile service. Refurbished fire engine Mercedes 319 from 1964 was brought to life again and now serves tea and cakes. The best part – it comes with speakers so you can say: Teajay, play some music!

I think Teazone couple deserves a round of applause for their awesome ideas! You gotta try one of them.
