Steep Grade

For tea bag-free infusion, the choice is clear. This glass cup features a built-in barrier that lets you steep and drink from the same vessel. Just infuse your favorite loose-leaf or herbal tea in the borosilicate glass container, and then enjoy an invigorating cup without any messy straining. The laboratory-grade glass is crafted through a combination of hand blowing and metal molds that strikes a balance between artisanal appeal and uniform design details. Designed by Bob Krul. Hand blown by local artisans in Taiwan and China.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

CN

Made in China

For Bob Krul, it all started with his love of oolong. The designer and tea connoisseur took a ten-day tea making tour to Taiwan to learn about the wonderful oolong teas from the Alishan high mountain region. Taiwan is known for its hand-cultivated oolong varieties based on tradition and individual tea grower expertise. Bob was under the direction of Thomas Shu, the Taiwan Tea Ambassador for the American farm community based in Los Angeles. After the tour, Bob stayed in Taiwan to study their steeping methods and equipment. The tour inspired him to make the tea drinking experience more personal by simplifying the design and steps associated with tea preparation.
