About Our Seven Cups Travel Jars
Seven Cups travel jars are back and they are better than ever! These travel jars are convenient enough to journey with everywhere and double walled so they stay cool to the touch. The bottom of the jars are thicker to help protect against any unwanted accidents. In addition, these travel jars possess stainless steel filters. This allows tea drinkers to place their leaves directly inside the filter in order to enable more controlled infusion times. For tea drinkers who prefer their tea a bit stronger, you can place your leaves directly in the bottom of the jar and the filter acts a barrier, preventing the leaves from getting in your mouth when you drink. The rubber seal in the screw-on lid provides a watertight seal for when you’re on the move. We recommend leaving some air in the top of the jar to relieve internal pressure from the hot water, or waiting a few minutes after filling to close the lid.
You can use your travel jar as a tea pot as well. Add hot water, go to wherever you need to go, then pour your infusions into an additional cup when your tea is strong enough for you or you want to share your tea with a friend. The travel jars are sealed to prevent any spillage of tea, and we’ve printed our company logo on the side with the website just below. The website acts as a natural line. Add more water to your tea once you’ve drunk down to this line.
Seven Cups Travel Jars are very popular gifts for new loose leaf tea drinkers and proficient tea enthusiasts alike.
Using glass teaware allows you to enjoy the visual beauty of your tea as the leaves infuse. The clarity of the glass also makes it very easy to see the intensity of the color of the brew, which helps you control the infusion time to achieve the desired flavor. Glassware cools down boiling water more quickly than porcelain and yixing ware, making it a great choice for beautiful high end green, yellow, white, and scented teas. We suggest you reuse your leaves multiple times, leaving just enough tea in your pot to cover the leaves before making your next infusion. In addition, occasionally stopping to watch the floating tea leaves makes for a relaxing pastime.
History of Chinese Glass
Humans all over the world having been using glass for centuries for various purposes, and China is no exception. Glass art has been found in tombs dating back to the Zhou Dynasty. The old pronunciation for glass was “Liu Li,” but after the Song Dynasty it was renamed to “Bo Li”. Liu Li was not clear, just very shiny since the temperature was not hot enough to achieve transparency. It was mostly used to make tiles for roofs, especially in palaces. If you visit Peking Palace, the ceiling is made with opaque, colorful glass tiles called “Liu Li Wa”.
These days, mainly clear glass is used for making teapots. Different types of glass will always look similar, but they are separated by their quality, clearness, thickness, heaviness, and the temperatures they can withstand without cracking. At Seven Cups, we only collect good quality glass that can withstand boiling water so you can brew your tea.
