Female entrepreneur from Rotterdam starts new Thai tea brand | 100% natural Tamnan Tea

28-5-2019

Tamnan Tea was founded by Penpak Boonla, an entrepreneur from Rotterdam and Stephan van IJperen. Their tea journey started  2 years ago. On one of their many trips to Thailand we met great and good-hearted people. Among them farmers who just want to have a normal, happy, simple life, but cannot market their beautiful and healthy products,  because of a gap in knowledge, network, support and market access. They market ‘Fresh Blue’, a lemongrass tea with a hint of ginger and handpicked blue pea flowers, which makes this tea a great refreshment. ‘Calm Green’, a loose kaffir lime tea that has a slightly bitter taste. To achieve the right balance you taste the soft flavors of pandan leaves en the freshness of lemongrass. ‘Mellow Yellow’, loose ginger tea with a Thai twist of fresh lemongrass and the soft flavor of pandan leaves. ‘Soft Sour Flower’, loose hibiscus tea with a soft sourness to it because of the added blue pea flower and lemongrass.

Colored teas, they’re trendy! Surprise your guests with Tamnan Tea or the blue tea from Crusio Thee or the red and blue matcha’s from Matcha.blue by Fluxias GmbH!

In Paris, in the BHV Marais Homme on rue du Temple, Onda serves ‘une crêpe brésilienne’. This crêpe is called ‘la tapioca’ and is real Brazilian street food. ‘La tapioca’ is a ‘galette’ (a kind of savory pancake) with a velvety texture made from cassava flour. ‘La tapioca’ is vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free! You can pick this healthy snack all day at the location of the BHV (Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville) Homme. Onda is open from Tuesday to Sunday.

Nice to try if you’re going to Paris this spring!

À la minute Tapioca at Onda

Onda is a street food stand started by Elsa who discovered this Brazilian delicacy during a stay in Brazil. The last 2 years she has traveled many festivals with a pop-up stand and now she is settled at the BHV Homme. Together with her brother Sacha, she makes à la minute tapioca’s with for example smoked salmon, avocado, tomato and salad, but also a more traditional tapioca with cheddar, avocado, tomato, pickles, red onion and jalapeno sauce. The Italian version also sounds delicious with mozzarella, dried tomatoes, tomatoes, arugula and pesto! Also on the menu: ‘Paes de queijo’, a kind of ‘Gougères’ with cheese (small airy balls of bread made from cassava flour). Besides ‘la tapioca’, you can enjoy smoothies at Onda and also an açaï bowl and a smoothie bowl with blue spirulina, banana, coconut milk and orange blossom.
