The tea sisters


 HUG THE TEA is run by the two sisters: Claire & Lisa, also called ‘the Tea Sisters’. In 2015 they started HUG THE TEA. Both sisters are great lovers of tea and entrepreneurship. They can express this beautifully at HUG THE TEA.

Get to know the Tea Sisters a little better …

Tea sister Claire


With my background in Facility Management I love to develop a new (service)concept. For HUG THE TEA I’m General manager, focussing on PR.

I don’t drink coffee, but Matcha is a good coffee-subsitute. I drink the Ceremonial Matcha almost every morning before I go to work. And a Matcha Latte with oatly milk is also lovely (I love this a latte)! This green tea powder has also many health benefits!

I’m also a big fan of Guricha, this mild green tea is naturally fruity, honey and soft in taste! Also lovely as an Iced Tea with lemon or ginger. Welcome in our bar & store (in the Hague) to experience and taste our organic teas!

Tea sister Lisa


With my commercial background enterprising is what I like to do. For HUG THE TEA I’m focussing on the Marketing and Sales.

I drink Matcha at least 1 time a day. I like to drink it pure as a teashot (I love this so matcha)! My favorite blend tea is the Kukicha Jasmine; the grassy taste of Sencha and the freshness of Gyokuro goes very well with the jasmine flowers, so all the good cha is coming together!

My other favourite tea is Gyokuro. This superior shade green tea is mild, fresh and super aromatic (full of umami, the fifth taste). It’s also lovely to drink as an Iced Tea! The colder the tea, the milder the taste is. Yum!
