Authentic German Potato Salad Recipe

Authentic German Potato Salad Recipe

Most likely, your family has a potato salad recipe that’s been passed down from generation to generation. Take a second to recall your family’s favorite recipe… is it served cold or hot? Does it have a mayonnaise or vinegar base? The type of recipe you have probably depends on where your family hails from.

Gunta Stölzl

Our visit to the Bauhaus museum and library left us in awe. We were so inspired by Gunta Stölzl’s weaving and beautiful use of color. The watercolor sketches she used to plan out her weaving were especially inspiring. We used them as inspiration for our Berlin cityscape for girl and as print inspiration for our women’s blouse.  Gunta-Stolzl-6 Gunta Stölzl’s watercolors and Tea Collection’s Berlin Cityscape Graphic Tee.  Gunta-Stolzl-5 Gunta Stölzl’s watercolors and Tea Collection’s Berlin Cityscape Artwork.

Traditional + Classic

Germany

Can you name a traditional German musical instrument? Did you guess the bagpipe, zither, krummhorn, hackbrett or konzertina concertina?

German music has a long tradition that is incredibly diverse. Volksmusic and oompah music are two traditional genres that have become synonymous with Germany. What better way to get into the spirit of Germany than with a playlist?

If you find a product that’s “Made in Germany”, it is likely you’ll feel confident about your purchase. German products are known for their high quality and reliability. From a trusted beauty cream to sleek and modern lamps to a bike crafted out of german wood… we’ve found a little something for everyone.

Our list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning our favorite German candy, Haribo gummy bears! Fun fact: Apple flavored Haribo gummy bears are only found in Germany. The green colored gummies you’re eating in the United States (which are made in Turkey) are actually strawberry flavored. Editors note: I’m currently snacking on apple gummy bears from Germany and I wish I could share them with each of you!

Destination: Germany

Tea Collection

Every thread of our new collection was inspired by the art, color and energy of Germany. We travel from the blue harbor of Hamburg to the bold and bright streets of Berlin, from the fairytale feel of the Bavarian forest to the steep slopes of the German alps. Sparkling snowflakes and gilded opulence, cozy fireplaces and Bauhaus color theory – we brought it all home in classic silhouettes, primary colors, vintage prints and modern style.

Keep an eye on our inspiration page throughout the season. With each new delivery, we’ll update this page to share the stories behind the designs!
