It is the first time in De Pelikaan’s nearly 200 year history that their teas will be available in America. Kikkerland will be the exclusive US retailer.
A common Dutch fixture, the teas have remained dear to Kikkerland’s founder Jan van der Lande, who remembers growing up in Holland and drinking De Pelikaan tea with his grandmother. Debuting stateside with Kikkerland are eleven teas, selected from nearly 100 different options, with blends ranging from Himalayan Melange (with unbroken Assam and Darjeeling), Rooibos (with Bergamot, Apple, Ginger, and Lemon) to traditional blends from India and Indonesia. The teas picked represent the staff of Kikkerland NYC, a team with people from all over the world.
De Pelikaan, a small family business, decided to work with Kikkerland for their US debut because van der Lande’s family has been a customer for over several generations.
“Growing up in the Netherlands, De Pelikaan was a common staple in most homes. I remember drinking it at my grandmother’s when I was growing up,” says van der Lande. “The text reads: ”Het geheim van een opgewekt humeur” or in English, “The secret to happiness,” which I think fits in well with the Kikkerland point of view! Introducing these teas to the shop makes sense because they are not only visually striking with their great tins, they are some of the finest teas in the world.”
The collection will officially debut with a celebratory event on May 7th at the Kikkerland Shop NYC (493 6th Ave) from 4-8pm

The Kikkerland Shop hosted 50 Towers, a water tower show curated by Chris Buzelli and SooJin Buzelli from Boundless Brooklyn.
50 local illustrators customized water towers, an iconic symbol of New York City.
Over 250 friends, illustrators and customers attended the gallery opening on April 3rd 2015. Kevin Brynan said “it was one of the shop’s best event to engage with the local design community”.
We want to thank SooJin Chun and Chris Buzelli along with Boundless Brooklyn for the amazing opportunity.
The customized towers are for sale until April 15th, retailing at $250 each.
Regular water tower kits are available for online purchase here.
