East Frisian Tea and Indigo textile printing are now at the German UNESCO cultural heritage list

Tee Unesco NWZBlaudruckerei Unesco NWZThe German Unesco Commission has reintroduced East Frisian tea culture and blue print with natural materials into the nationwide list of the intangible cultural heritage. The ministers of education of the countries agreed to the recommendation for admission, announced on Friday in Berlin.
For more than 300 years, the tea has developed as an independent culture in East Frisia (Ostfriesland) and is also found in the language. The ritual of tea ceremony and preferences for certain mixtures are often transmitted from generation to generation. The blueprint process or indigo textile printing has a similarly long history. Materials such as linen, cotton or silk are used.

The Wadden Sea Region - the area of the embanked coastal marshes, the islands and the Wadden Sea of Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands – retains an exceptional common history in all its aspects, archaeologically, economically, socially, and culturally. Though it has never constituted a political unity, it shares a coastal landscape and cultural heritage which is worldwide outstanding.
