About our teahouse

The idea for Club Sirius was born on December 25th, 2001. After almost five months of intense work, we opened our doors in early June 2002 and began operating as a private club. This time was as exciting and adventurous as the 20th century for humanity.

After undergoing several changes of varying magnitude, the club acquired its current atmosphere around May 2003.

When creating the tea house, our main objectives were to achieve diversity, versatility, coziness, comfort, three-dimensional utilization, creative solutions, undertake a lot of DIY work, and use hand-made items.

Our guests can choose from a selection of over 80 teas from around the world, taste our specialty coffee made from Central American beans and sample other unique items from our menu. You can sit in a chair, a wooden stool, on pillows, or even relax and lounge on one of the hidden mezzanines.

The kids' castle houses toys for children, while the bookshelves have games for adults.

We can host private film screenings, different presentations and are always happy to welcome art exhibitions.

Additionally, visitors are welcome to peruse the 1000-page Big Book.

About tea

Tea (Camellia Sinensis) is a plant native to Southeast-Asia. All sorts of tea come from the leaves of this very plant.

Tea is categorized into three main types:

  1. Black tea
  2. Oolong tea
  3. Green tea

The difference comes from the way the tea is processed. Black teas are fermented for the longest time. Oolong tea is fermented for a shorter time, while green tea is not fermented. The style of tea is also determined by the time of picking and depends on which leaves they use from the plant.

Short description of black tea processing:

  1. Withering (the leaves lose most of their moisture content in this step)
  2. Rolling (tea leaves are rolled up)
  3. Fermentation (for a given time period, rolled leaves are kept at set temperature, so the natural chemical processes set-off by rolling can achieve their required effect)

For oolong tea, it is the same process, but with a shorter fermentation.

Green tea is not fermented at all.

Apart from these types there exist various herbal teas, fruit teas and rooibos (caffeine-free) teas as well.

Herbal teas are made from various herbs and plants with healing properties and can have many different ways of preparation. Certainly, the consumption of teas mentioned above may also be very beneficial to your health, but they are not made from herbs, but the tea plant.

Fruit teas are the hot- or cold infusion of chopped-up fruits.

Rooi- or rooibos tea is a popular, light, mildly spicy beverage from South-Africa. It has become increasingly popular and sought after in Europe too. The plant it is made from is native to Cape Province, SA, its natural habitat is the micro-climate of the Cadarberg mountain region. It is processed the same way as black tea. Since rooi tea has low tannin and contains no caffeine, it has soothing properties and is especially recommended for decreasing symptoms of anxiety, irritability, headaches, insomnia, or depression.
