Such a lovely cup!
I hesitate to say that this cup promotes a meditative state of mind, but it really does. You have to get up close and personal with your tea, in the same way you do when you drink miso soup. It's a niced sized cup, and when the tea leaves are wet, they don't fall into your face or anything when you upend the cup. I really love these! They lend a certain calmness into my tea routine - rather than just glugging out of a cup, it's a really calming, and I enjoy it. Very easy to fill, very easy to clean the leaves up, and it really holds just the right amount of leaves in the mesh area to have the perfect cup.
I bought them because I thought they were nifty and stylish, and also because I don't have room for a teapot in my kitchen. I'm glad to say they are much more than just that. =)
- easy to fill and clean
- good in a kitchen with no teapot
- promotes taking a little time and thought over your tea.
- fast delivery & international shipping, yay!
