High tea in South Limburg

Afternoon tea in Maastricht

Generally considered a British tradition, interestingly it was the Dutch that first introduced tea to the European palate. Made fashionable when Charles II married Catherine of Braganza, a Portuguese princess with a fondness for this brew, it remained a drink for the wealthy due to the introduction of heavy tax duties. It was the 7th Duchess of Bedford who introduced the idea of serving accompanying savory and sweet treats, making Afternoon Tea the popular institution it is today.

Design-led pick-me-up

Take a break from exploring Maastricht’s many sights with Afternoon Tea in the stylish surrounds of Kruisherenhotel Maastricht. Crafted using regional products, the experience can be savoured in the stunning converted church or outside in the sun-drenched quadrangle.
