Tibetan Tea Bowls


Some time back I shared the Tibetan tea bowl I had found.
Several of you mentioned an interest in them; so I thought I
would show you what is still available from Caravan Trading, a local importer.
They are charging $15. plus shipping.

These very beautiful tea bowls are nickel and brass on the inside.
The outside is wood.
The stones are turquoise, tigers eye, or lapis.
Each bowl is different.
There are three different stones on the ones with stones, plus there are two that are just plain.

If you are interested in any of the ones above, I tried to include a picture with a stone unique to it for identification.  Please contact me and I can give you the contact information for Caravan Trading.
The owners are good friends of mine; so I know they are reputable.
I may be slow at answering, as I will be out and about for the next few days.

We weren't sure how old they are, but they could be up to 50 years old or more.
If nothing else, just enjoy seeing several different Tibetan tea bowls.

These are wonderful, Marilyn! I'm very interested in Tibetan culture, so this post fascinates! The ornate bowls are amazing... and the "plain jane" bowls are just a exquisite, I think... Thank you for another lovely tea time moment. :o) Happy weekend ((HUGS)) Oh, and yes, I will be saving my anniversary roses--will try to dry them, and just keep the bouquet as is to admire...

These are beautiful.
I can think of several uses for them too, other than tea.
Thanks for sharing them with us.

Lovely. How do you use them? Do you pour the tea in like you would a tea pot? I hate to appear ignorant,but looks like I am!
