Tcup is also a creation of Mr. Jacques Pascot who also invented the tasting glasses “Les Impitoyables (the merciless) “He had noticed the great similitude of the art of tasting wine and tea. Therefore, he searched which would be the best shape to reveal the subtle aromas of tea
After several years of trials he succeeds to develop a cup for tea tasting : Rounded shape, made out of crystal, with an inside protuberance which permits exacerbating the aromatic perceptions. Its thinner border is tighter to avoid evaporation of perfumes. This cup, which is perfectly transparent, permits appreciating the tea colour as you would appreciate a wine colour. The slightest defect would be detected, same as a fault of wine, in a “merciless” glass.
Now, thanks to Mr. Jacques Pascot, tea has its own crystal Tpot and Tcup to delight the taste buds of a tea-lover.
