Tea Gift Set: Comforting Traditions
This tea set is called ‘Comforting Traditions’. It contains three handmade elements that are representative of Turkish craftsmanship and tea drinking culture. We hope these together with the Turkish loose-leaf tea of your choice, will give you a unique tea experience.
Glass teacup: This tulip-shaped tea glass was designed and produced in Istanbul in the early 20th century, when imported tea was becoming popular in Turkey.
This cup was hand-blown.
Dimensions: Diameter 6cm, Height 8.5 cm, Volume 115 cc
Çini Tea Saucer: Çini are traditional, handmade glazed tiles and ceramics made in Turkey, particularly in the cities of Iznik and Kütahya. The craftsmanship of Çini-making was recognised as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2016. The pattern on this saucer was designed by Ms Turan who studied Çini Artistry at the University of Kütahya.
Diameter: 12 cm (As they are all hand-made, the sizes may differ slightly.)
Shile Fabric Embroidered Tea Towel: This tea towel is made out of Shile fabric (Shile bezi) which is exclusively specific to the Shile district of Istanbul. It is composed of two layers of Shile fabric. It is highly absorbent, and once it is washed, you will observe that it will become even more crimped. You can use it as a tea towel or tea mat.
Dimensions: 35 cm x 25 cm (As they are all hand-made, the sizes may differ slightly.)
