Drinking tea is a spirit of heart, quietness and tranquility. It’s a concept that bridges Zen and Tea together. Often times however, the coffee cup doubles as the container of choice when taking down an aroma filled cup of hot water with herbs. The idea of a coffee cup sharing the etiquette that encompasses the characteristics of tea seems… odd.
Teacup with its organic design brings us back to a feeling of Zen when cupped within our hands; it makes enjoying tea nice and simple again. Designed with brilliance in mind it’s more than a cup it’s a way to easily adjust the strength of tea without making a mess but perfect for your taste.
Just tilt the Teacup so that strainer side of the cup is lower, place tealeaves in the strainer, pour hot water until the leaves are covered and wait for it to steep. Once you tilt the cup in the opposite direction the leaves and the hot water are no longer in contact. And your tea is ready to be enjoyed while still engulfing your senses with fragrances of tealeaves near by. Available for $20 on the Leibal website.
