Assam Tea Glass (20 oz.) from Bodum ("give up bad design for good")
This glass is the perfect way to drink tea. It is made of double-walled, lightweight borosilicate glass that keeps the tea hot and your hands cool. The way the top curves out, it's as if the tea is being offered up to you. I had a wonderful peach-ginger tea in one of these glasses at the Remedy Tea Bar at 1628 Sansom St. in Philadelphia.
"Teaism is a cult founded on the adoration of the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday existence. It inculcates purity and harmony, the mystery of mutual charity, the romanticism of the social order. It is essentially a worship of the Imperfect, as it is a tender attempt to accomplish something possible in this impossible thing we know as life." - from The Book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura
