Woodgrain Tea Cup

by Grace Bonney

Try as I might, I just can’t make myself a tea lover. I enjoy a giant glass of iced tea like any good southerner, but when it comes to hot tea, I just can’t seem to find my groove. But I’ve decided that doesn’t mean I can’t still use tea accessories for other purposes. I’ve always loved Japanese tea sets, and this woodgrain style at Leif would be perfect for juices, hot cider or anything else you might want in a slightly smaller (7 oz.) quantity. I really love the glaze color and style — that organic feel grabs me every time. If you’re interested in picking up a cup or two, you can check them out in more detail and order online ($12 each, microwave and dishwasher safe) right here. xo, grace
