Someone had asked me to post when I got my glasses and tell how I liked them. I think they are more beautiful in person than online or in the catalog! I took a photo, which is a little blurry, but maybe it will give a good idea anyway.

You really only pour about four ounces in these to be in keeping with how hot tea is served in a glass container. One thing that makes it extra pretty to me is that the very bottom of the glass is clear and it somehow seems to make the tea look more delectable and I think the light plays with the glass color better because of it, too.

I bought four, but one had a burr on top, I think possibly a splinter of wood that flew up during melting and stuck to the glass and was coated in a think layer of glass. I don’t mind imperfections and variation in hand made items, that is part of its charm and value, but it was sharp enough that if you didn’t know it was there you could possibly cut your lip while drinking or your hand while washing it. I sent an email to H&S and had a phone call the next day to keep the glass, and another was being shipped to me. I think it came the next day, but it may have been two days. Either way, that was great customer service! I will use the extra glass for flowers or demitasse spoons.

If you go to previous and next, there are four pictures in all – three of the glasses and one of my Harney tea shelf which I FINALLY cleaned and dusted today!

Those are very pretty! And your tea shelf…I think I need to save that picture to show people who tell me I have a tea problem! I am in awe. :)

How lovely! I also like your Harney tea shelf. I want to stay at your house. heee heee!

Missy

That is a rather nice set. :D

Nicole: LOL! Those are just my black tins. The Historic Royal Palace Tins are in the living room by the tea table, and the pound bags are stored in the pantry! And that’s just the Harney! Then you add the Teavivre and miscellaneous companies…oy vey!
Amy: I wish you could come to tea! :)
Missy: Thank you! The pot was Inherited from my godmother, along with a matching tray and cream and sugar. It really is more Williamsburg in appearance, but I thought putting it on the stand gave it a bit of Moroccan flair!

Your Harney shelf is a thing of beauty. Sam is looking amazingly cute, too! He must have had a great time at the beach!

NICE HandS Shelves!

JacquelineM: Thank you! I guess it is a little OCD to love how the tins look all lined up and matchy! And Sam had a wonderful time at the beach – apparently dead jellyfish smell amazing and are the best playmates EVER, and ghost crabs are up to no good and taunt puppies on the beach.

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
