Product Description

The double-walled construction of these teacups allows one to hold the cup comfortably between the fingers even when the cup contains freshly brewed hot tea. Made of clear heat-resistant glass and hand-made. Please note that these cups hold about 1.6 ounces and are designed for imbibing tea in the manner of the Chinese Gong-Fu-style tea ceremony. This style of tea drinking allows the smaller volume of tea in the cup to cool to a drinkable temperature more quickly than a greater amount of tea in larger mugs. These cups would be about the size of the tea cups found at your local Chinese restaurant. These smaller cups are also perfect for expresso coffee. The set of six cups comes with complimentary Bana Pu-erh tea samples. (Important note: Double-walled tea cups are often manufactured with a very small annular opening near the bottom of the cup to allow for release of air-pressure. Prolonged immersion of these cups in water may result in moisture entering within the double walls.) Bana Tea products ship from the United States.

The only other review for this product thus far stated the tea cups are too small. Actually, these are much more substantial than the tea cups offered me by my favorite Chinese restaurant. The traditional tea cups I'm used to truly do offer only a couple sips. These cups offer about six. I think they are perfect. This allows the hot tea to cool quickly to the right temperature for drinking, while giving you time to savor and enjoy your tea. They come in very nice packaging, and I appreciated the information included with them, as well as the two authentic sample teas. I searched on Amazon for similar cups, and only found these. After buying and using them, I think that is just fine, because I can't imagine a better product.

These small cups are typical for gong fu style tea drinking, when filled almost to the rim each holds just a bit less than 60ml/ 2oz, so it will be about 30 to 40ml/ 1oz if you pour less to avoid spilling. They seem very fragile, but thus far I had no problems with their glass tolerating tea just below boiling temperatures. And the air between the internal cup and the external holding cup works, so I don't burn my fingers. There is a small pinpoint hole on the bottom of the cup, so do not submerge the cup under water or it will take "forever" to get the water and moist/ fog from the protected space between the nested cup and the exterior holding area.
Mine have "Hong Jian" and a logo mark inscribed on the bottom of the cups.

These cups are good for the most part, but I have some minor complaints.

First the good: There's six of them. Inexpensive. They are double walled glass, good for small sups of tea. They insulate very well, and they seem sturdy enough.

Not so good: The cups vary quite a bit in height, and in the levelness and roundedness of the rim. On two of the glasses, the rim is noticeably slanted. Another one of the cups is shorter and fatter than all the others.

Other thoughts: There was no graphic at the bottom of my cups, they are just plain glass. Also, my glasses did not come with any tea samples, but I guess I didn't really care about that.

I think the seller forgot to include my free tea, but I'm ok with it because I love these cups!! They are amazing. You feel like a very sophisticated tea conniseur with these little glass shots of fun. And the order came a month faster than expected, just in time for father's day, which was a nice surprise and much appreciated!

They were packaged well and received these fairly quickly. I went to wash them and found 2 of the cups had holes in the parts that are empty glass so soapy dish water got in them and they are no longer usable. :(

Good product but it's small even for espresso. The quality is acceptable and the value for the money is OK.

Thin glass. Hot tea leaves the glass too hot to handle. It's so thin I was worried about breakage during use, and then again during hand washing. Pretty but not practical. I wouldn't repurchase or recommend.
