First Istanbul Kahvaltı in the morning – now Istanbul Tiryaki for all-day tea connoisseurs
Tulip-shaped, clear tea glasses have left their mark on our tea culture. The see-through glasses reveal the colour, the steeping, the taste, and the moment the tea is brewed. Since 2006, the story of the Istanbul Tea Glasses design has enlivened Turkey's tea culture, ever-widening since then, inspired by a new perspective of Turkey's geography and culture, sagacity, true-to-life experiences, in different shapes and colours. The Istanbul Tea Glasses were originally designed to hold 190 millilitres of tea, compatible with the amount of tea sipped at breakfast. We reserved those glasses expressly for breakfast, and named them Istanbul Kahvaltı, and then designed the smaller Istanbul Tiryaki glasses to hold 130 millilitres to let you enjoy tea at all hours of the day. Istanbul Tiryaki offers a new experience, unique to tea connoisseurs, with a customary tea glass size reflecting this Turkish tradition more than ever. The customary tulip glass has been reshaped, giving the Istanbul Tiryaki design a new meaning, and comes with either glass or porcelain saucers. In Istanbul Tiryaki's new design, the bottom of the glass and the saucer coalesce into a fit snug, bringing the heritage of a deep-rooted culture into modern times. Istanbul Tiryaki has been redesigned to be more suitable for daily use, with changes in production technology, allowing the new glasses to reach more of the populace. Istanbul Tiryaki finds its niche in every treat, conversation, celebration or countryside café. The design is truly a breath of fresh air – accessible, perfect, luxurious, and quintessential. Bon appetite!
