One of my favorite things about this time of year is hot tea: drinking lots of it. And I’ve lately been drinking a lot of it from this extravagant silver and ceramic mug from Kuehn Keramik in Berlin, Germany. Each vessel is hand-built, not thrown, with walls that are dimpled with impressions left by potters’ fingers, and a light silver wash gives the entire cup a beguiling, bright shimmer- a perfect foil to gloomy fall weather.
