CALA is a collection of teaware comprised of a 16 oz. teapot, a teacup with saucer, and tasting cups in 6 and 3 oz. sizes. Inspired by both western and asian tea traditions, these vessels are graceful expressions of the forms that enhance the nuanced tastes of tea. The teapot has a subtly wide hip to allow for optimal steeping while its handle provides balance when pouring. The wide mouth and delicately flared lip on the cups allow the aroma of the tea to float across the surface as one sips, distributing liquid evenly across the palate, making them ideal for experiencing the subtleties of tea.
