 HUG THE TEA is run by the two sisters: Claire & Lisa, also called ‘the Tea Sisters’. In 2015 they started HUG THE TEA and opened the first Matcha Tea Bar & Store in the Netherlands.

Of course they started to drink Japanese green tea and matcha daily and they found that it had many benefits for them. Lisa was dealing with IBS for years. Since she started to drink matcha she felt such a relief in her belly. Now she drinks it twice a day and the sympthoms are away.

Also Claire was dealing with so much pain and bloating in her belly, since she got an intestinal infection abroad. After many examinations at the hospital, it was still unclear what it was. Without knowing so much about matcha, she started drinking it and after 2-3 weeks she had no more complaints anymore!

Since then their quote is:
a matcha a day keeps the doctor away!

Since Claire and Lisa opened their Matcha Tea Bar & Store in The Hague many customers also came back with different positive experiences regarding the effect and benefits of the organic matcha. Some examples: much more energy (someone with autoimmune disease), more relaxed and less stress, more vital and many more stories with health benefits.

Get to know the Tea Sisters a little better …


Hi, I’m Claire. Started HUG THE TEA in 2015 together with my sister Lisa. Within HUG THE TEA I focus on the general process, with a focus on Social Media & PR. I like organizing, so I am also committed to various events, fun collaborations and fairs.

I don’t like coffee, but I drink at least one Matcha or Matcha Latte with oatly milk every day. It is a good coffee substitute and also has many health benefits. This is how it gives me energy and it’s good for your skin. Besides Matcha, Guricha is really my favorite. This Japanese green tea is naturally fruity and mild in taste. Delicious!

Welcome to our bar & shop in The Hague to taste our menu with matcha, tea, brunch, lunch & high tea!


Hi! I’m Lisa. In 2015 we have opened up the first Matcha Bar in the Netherlands. The health benefits of Matcha still fascinate me every day. I have a lot of passion for entrepreneurship, contact with customers and the entire process from the Japanese tea farmer to the preparation in the Matcha Bar.

I drink one Matcha tea shot in the morning daily. In the afternoon I always have a Matcha Latte with milk from Oatly. I love it so matcha! It gives me energy for the day and it makes me feel fit.

We also regularly organize a Tea Tasting in our Matcha Bar in The Hague. Or come by for a High Tea. Matchas Gracias!
