Summertime is all about lighter brighter flavours and it's now that the clean refreshing tastes of green tea or coffee that really come into their own. New at Minor Goods in August are two ranges perfect for a slow brew summer.
Sometimes small really is beautiful and so it is with these new Small Cups from Minor Goods. Made from sturdy stone-ware with an iridescent glaze that echoes the colours of the ocean, no two pieces are the same. They are perfect for green tea; as a plant pot for miniature succulents or just to admire lined up on your kitchen shelf. The cups are made in a small family-run factory in Portugal where 80% of the making process is by hand.
Also new this Summer is a re-designed Slow Brew Mug which comes with a strainer and lid. The strainer makes great home-made herbal teas and now Zoe is selling handmade, reusable linen filters which are perfect for loose fine leaf tea and coffee using the slow pour method.
