Kintsugi Ritual Tea set
The tea ceremony is an ancient tradition. Often undertaken in a garden or in a dedicated quiet space, it provides a moment of respite in a busy life. Here, we have designed the quintessential tea ritual set in order to pay homage to this most precious of moments.
Created exclusively for the Kintsugi loose leaf tea range, this hand-crafted set includes a solo glass tea pot with tea infuser, two double-walled glass tea cups, a glass snack dish and a desert sand hourglass tea timer for precise infusion time. Made from pure borosilicate glass, each piece is designed to work in harmony to create the perfect tea experience. Also included is a tin of Kintsugi signature blend tea No. 7, a rich and sophisticated herbal tea with notes of cocoa, rose and lavender, and two additional teas of your choosing from the Kintsugi loose leaf tea range.
In using this set, we invite you to transform your tea experience into a meditative practice. As the water boils, take the time to slow down your breath – breathe in for a count of four, hold for a few seconds, then breathe out for a count of four and hold for a few seconds. When you have poured the water, turn the hourglass over and focus all of your attention on it, allow your thoughts to still as you watch the sand move through the glass. When the tea is ready, pour slowly into the cup, noticing the shade of the water as you do. Hold the cup and close your eyes, see if you can name the sounds and scents around you. Finally, sip slowly and try to keep your thoughts on this very moment, when they wonder, simply bring them back to the warm tea in your hand.
By connecting with these inner thoughts and feelings, you make space for yourself – which we believe is crucial to wellbeing. As the saying goes, you cannot pour from an empty cup. So, take a moment to fill your cup.
