Keyaki Wood Tea Cups

I wonder how well wood conducts heat? I’m tempted to buy these; they look so comfortable to hold, plus, they seem more natural than the ceramic mugs we’re all used to.

“Keyaki wood is a Japanese elm and has been much prized for centuries by Japanese woodworkers for the dramatic and beautiful grain. Each teacup is carved from a single block of wood and has a unique pattern. They are light and wonderful to hold in the hand. Set of 4.”

On Off Mug

Even though this is slightly back ordered at the moment, it’s still worthy of a post- you can preorder it to get it early next year, (which isn’t too far away might I add)…

“At plain sight it is a standard black mug as they come a dime a dozen and in big white letters it say OFF. Nothing fancy, but once you add the hot beverage of your choice, the mug changes color and is turning white and in big black letters it states: ON”

My Cuppa

If you’re still in the middle of last minute holiday shopping, this might be a thoughtful gift for someone that’s particular about how they take their tea or coffee…

‘Although the question “how do you take your coffee?” seems simple enough, for the caffeine-connaisseur, a non-descript “two creams, one sugar” does not always acheive the desired results. My Cuppa helps you mix your drink to the perfect consistency, based on the color-coded guide inside. Options include everything from a straightforward “milky” to an extra-strong “builder’s brew”.’

2.75″W x 3.75″L x 4.5″H

Deception (Cup and Saucer) by chillichilly

This is a rather unique cup and saucer set- I like how the handle looks like part of a pair of scissors, and the fake shadow is interesting as well…

“what you see is not what you get. this cup and saucer set challenges our perception of what is right and false. the deceiving shadow forged on the saucer resonates the beauty and well-proportioned shape of the coffee cup.”

Tube Coffee Set

I love the look of matte ceramic.

“Designed by the boys at Vast Design in Greece, fired in Portugal where artisans have been producing hard-wearing ceramics from the local clay for hundreds of years, this set (coffee pot, milk jug and sugar) sits on a wooden base (indentations keep the pieces secure). Careful attention to details of form and proportion give the set a stylish retro/modern feel. Available in matte white or black”

Currently on backorder. sorry.
