Japanese Style Glass Tea Cups – 12 Styles
- Additional information
These Japanese style glass cups are a refreshing change of pace for gongfu tea sessions. Made from thick, heat-resistant glass, these cups are very sturdy and resistant to tipping. They also retain the scent of your tea extremely well.
To distinguish these cups, we’ve assigned each style a month. Each cup has a unique shape, with a unique pattern and detail. They are all handmade, so no two are exactly alike and there will be slight variations even within the same style. Sizes vary from style to style, with the larger ones (June and July) being suitable for more casual tea sessions.
These cups are all sold individually. Feel free to build a matching set or mix and match from the 12 available styles and make each cup easier to identify when drinking in a group.
