Ultimate Tea Gift: Eastern Pleasures
This tea set is called ‘Eastern Pleasures’. It contains three elements drawn from the tea-drinking spirit from the Far East, although each part of the tea set has been made in Turkey. We hope these together with the Turkish loose-leaf tea, will provide you with a unique tea experience.
This teacup has been crafted by Mr Süman in Antalya, Turkey who has a passion for the Far East, which he visited multiple times. Over the years, he has also developed a liking for Japanese and Chinese teas and teaware. This cup was inspired by Japanese design, and we believe it perfectly reflects the soul of this tea set: ‘Eastern Pleasures’.
Dimensions: 7 cm (length) x 7 cm (diameter)
Wooden Tea Saucer:
This saucer is made from oriental beech which is a tree indigenous to the Balkans in the west, through Anatolia, to the Caucasus, northern Iran and Crimea. The trees that are used to produce this saucer came from the Western Black Sea Region. After production, the saucer was treated with linseed oil.
Diameter: 10 cm
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.)
