Modern Tea Culture

By Brandon Johnson


Published on September 22, 2009

There is a palpable culture surrounding the art of serving tea, from the various tools to the many ceremonies in different parts of the world. The designers behind Molo's float tea lantern have created their own niche in tea culture, playing with a suspended bowl design and specialized glass that preserves cold and hot temperatures. Master glassblowers in the Czech Republic individually craft each heat-resistant lantern. The base is made hollow so tea light candles can fit underneath to maintain heat, and the borosilicate glass plays a dual role by protecting your hands from hot liquids and maintaining cool temperatures for iced teas. Molo's range of multifunctional glassware is great for serving coffee and rum sangrias, and they also make decanters for wine. Because the liquid is suspended above the table's surface, coasters are never needed.
