Sure, all that you need to make tea is leaf, water and some sort of container. But we all know that brewing and serving in well designed, beautiful teaware is a much more enjoyable experience.
I have always liked the simplicity and style of glassware. It does not flavour the tea (like clay pots) and you can see the colour and translucence of the brew. More than that, tea presented in glass somehow shouts ‘I’m precious so drink me’ more than your standard tea cups.
Design is fundamental too. Teaware should incorporate a filter to save your precious leaves from stewing and making cups double walled means that you see the tea without burning your fingers
Why not browse through our glass teaware to find your perfect way to serve tea this festive season. Or buy one for a friend in need of a fresh approach to tea.
