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!
We recommend hand wash with a soft soap due to the delicacy of hand paint on the decorations.
Bone china is a type of porcelain that is composed of bone ash. It has been defined as "ware with a translucent body", where Bone china is the strongest of the porcelain or china ceramics, having very high mechanical and physical strength and chip resistance, and is known for its high levels of whiteness and translucency. Its high strength allows it to be produced in thinner cross-sections than other types of porcelain.
In the mid-18th century, English potters had not succeeded in making hard-paste porcelain (as made in East Asia and Meissen porcelain) but found bone ash a useful addition to their soft-paste porcelain mixtures, giving strength. This became standard at the Bow porcelain factory in London (operating from around 1747), and spread to some other English factories.
The modern product was developed by the Staffordshire potter Josiah Spode in the early 1790s. Spode included kaolin, so his formula, sometimes called "Staffordshire bone-porcelain", was effectively hard-paste, but stronger, and versions were adopted by all the major English factories by around 1815.
From its initial development and up to the latter part of the 20th century, bone china was almost exclusively an English product, with production being effectively localised in Stoke-on-Trent.
Most major English firms made or still make it, including Fortnum & Mason, Mintons, Coalport, Spode, Royal Crown Derby, Royal Doulton, Wedgwood and Worcester.
In the UK, references to "china" or "porcelain" can refer to bone china, and "English porcelain" has been used as a term for it, both in the UK and around the world.
