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 are 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 brewings. For tea drinkers who prefer their tea a bit stronger, you can place your leaves directly in the cup and the filter acts a barrier preventing the leaves from getting in your mouth.

You can use your travel jar as a tea pot as well. Add hot water, go to where 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.

History of Glassware

Humans have been using glass for all sorts of purposes for centuries, and China is no exception. Glass artifacts have 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. It basically referred to something that was  just very shiny since the temperature was not hot enough to make it transparent. It was primarily used to make tiles for roofs, and found especially in palaces. If you visit Peking Palace, the ceiling is unclear with colorful glass tiles called “Liu Li Wa”. Modern glass is generally clear and used for making teapots. Glass for this sort of use is a rather recent practice that has only been used inside of China for a few decades at most. Although used a variety of tea ware, although the glass will always look similar, it is distinguished by quality, clearness, thickness, heaviness, and what temperatures it can withstand without cracking. We’ve chosen the very best quality of glass so that can withstand boiling water for the brewing of your tea.

Some Final Notes About Your Seven Cups Travel Jar

The Seven Cups Travel Jar is ideal for checking the quality of the tea as well as its color. This makes it particularly helpful for new tea drinkers to learn how to control the infusions of their tea to match their taste preferences in terms of the strength of their tea brewings. Glassware releases heat at a quicker pace than porcelain or yixing, making it a great choice for high end green, yellow, white, and scented teas. We encourage tea drinkers to reuse their leaves multiple times extracting as many infusions as they like. The only suggestion we would make is to leave enough tea in your jar to cover the leaves before brewing your next infusion. The glass makes it extremely helpful to determine when it is time to refill your pot. Incidentally, the occasional watching of tea leaves makes for a pretty enjoyable pastime.
