Double walled insulated glass cup - 2 sizes - Good Life Tea

Double walled insulated glass cup - 2 sizes

  • Either the 5 oz or the 10 oz glass cup allows you to observe the wide variety of colors that tea can be brewed in, from the delicate yellow-green of Kyoto Cherry Rose, to the rich burgundy of Orange Blossom Oolong. The double walled construction also creates an illusion that your drink is floating in the cup. Made from super heat resistant borasilicate glass (pyrex) these cups can handle the hot temperatures. The double walled construction shields the heat and cold away from your hands and keeps the tea hotter or colder longer than regular cups.  

    Cold iced tea and cocktails in regular cups sweat in the summer heat and require a coaster. Because either of these cups is insulated, there is no sweat and no need for coasters.  There is nothing worse than a ruined table finish because of water rings from sweating cups.

    Price is for 1 cup, not a pair.

     Enjoy any cold or hot drink in these elegant, modern cups.  

    Beautifully constructed with no sharp seams 

    Holds 5 or 10 ounces.  Made in China. Lead free. Hand wash recommended.

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.

    Tea Type Steeping Temperature Steeping Time
    White Tea  170-185 F 1-3 minutes
    Green Tea 170-185 F 2-3 minutes
    Oolong Tea 170-190 F 2-3 minutes
    Black Tea 200-212 F 3-5 minutes
    Tisanes 212 F 4-7 minutes

       Fruit and herbal teas are also referred to as tisanes.

Not crazy about this style.

I have the taller, larger concave/hourglass shaped one and LOVE it. I decided to try the smaller one. The first one got water and condensation inside when it went through the dishwasher. They replaced it with this (I never checked the nicely packed box before taking it - just assumed it was the same) and it's smaller and the rim curves inward which along with the double wall had me dribbling tea out my lip! :-( I'd like to exchange it if possible next time I am in Canandaigua.
