Dating back as far as to 2737 BC, tea drinking has developed to become a social custom and a socially acceptable way to meet new people in countries like China and Britain. In other South Asian countries like India, tea is a very popular beverage that is brewed in homes almost every day and is brewed in a number of different ways. In the recent times, there has been a lot of new innovations regarding to the types of teas with many more herbal infusions being made in teas to boost its benefits and to enhance the taste of the tea.
With the recently developing craze for more unique blends of teas that take the humble tea drinking experience into an elevated culture, tea experts are coming up with ways to make the brewing process as aesthetically appealing as the process of drinking itself by coming up with different types of tea infusers, blooming herbs that can actually bloom when infused in the hot water to brew the tea as well as other creations that are nothing short of works of art in themselves to make the process of drinking tea as aesthetically pleasing as possible.
If you are looking to enjoy the perfect cup of tea with all its aesthetic appeal, you need to have the perfect accessories for it. A glass cup and saucer is one of the best options for you, if you want to host a tea party. This can help your guests to enjoy the brew visually, as much as they would through their taste buds. Since different teas have different colors, this is also a fun way to show off the different types of teas you have in your tea collection and let your guests marvel at the beauty of the tea. Moreover, the process of brewing of the tea , in itself, is a beautiful process to watch. Certain types of teas like jasmine pearl or oolong tea that are usually rolled up unfurl in the hot water and release the brew. Known poetically as the “agony of the leaves”, this is quite a mesmerizing process to watch.
Another reason why you can definitely go for a glass cup and saucer is that glass is generally resistant to acquiring any type of smells from anything that is kept in it, unlike clay or plastics. This can help you to ensure that the beautiful aroma of the tea that you brew is locked in and kept pure. It also does not change the smell or the taste by intermixing with any remainders of the previous batch of tea to ensure that you get a clean and pure taste every time. Moreover, a thick glass mug is also an insulator and therefore, can allow you to hold the hot cup without burning your fingers. Unlike plastic accessories, it does not compromise the taste by reacting at higher temperatures.
Thus, using a glass mug can ensure that you get the full benefits of the tea from its visual appeal to the aromatic properties and can help to keep the taste intact. Teapots made of glass can, thus, be a very practical addition to your kitchenware sets if you are looking to make that perfect cup of tea to wow your friends and is a must have in the cupboard of every tea connoisseur.
