Why we love this product

A new and soothing way to drink tea.

These stunning tea bowls are inspired by the Japanese tea bowls, called 'chawan' and used in traditional tea ceremonies. The beautiful pattern on the outside of the bowl echoes the Japanese 'shino' ceramic glaze which makes these pieces innovative and unique as they are made from glass. The maker sandblasts the pieces to create this effect making them tactile and wonderful to hold as you sip your morning tea from them. There is an exquisite contrast between the tactual exterior surface and the smooth interior. 

Available in three colours, these gorgeous bowls encourage us to slow down and take the time to enjoy the peace and simplicity of a nice cup, bowl rather, of tea.
