Last summer, to an astounding response, we released our Growlers. These aren’t just ordinary glass Growlers but instead they are hand thrown, pottery Growlers with recycled handles. They were made by local potter, Garick Tai Lee and the handles were conceived and made by local resalvage artist, Dave Calfo. The whole project was so successful, we actually made a second round. These Growlers are so unique that not only is each round we do going to be different, but each Growler itself is slightly unique. Hand made items have small inconsistencies and that is how we like it!
Pittsburgh Public Market Tea Growler Fill-Ups
Part of the hesitation of leaving the Pittsburgh Public Market, was that we had just rolled out this really successful, wanted program of filling Growlers. We couldn’t just abandon what we had started and our dream of building it. So we have rented space on the first Saturday of each month, April through September, at the Pittsburgh Public Market to fill and sell Growlers. The flavors will be posted on our Facebook and Twitter pages a week in advance and we will take pre-orders, to ensure if you want filled, you get your fill up. We will also take walk ins and will be selling cups of tea as before. The dates are as follows:
- April 7
- May 5
- June 2
- July 7
- August 4
- September 1
If you haven’t picked up one of our Growlers, you can do so as we have a few left from the second round. The first round is completely sold out. These are fantastic pieces which are functional in so many different ways. You can fill them with any liquid (doesn’t just have to be tea). Because they are made from clay, what ever temperature beverage you put in it will stay that way longer. Glass and Metal tend to lose the cool or hot faster. They are perfect for picnics or outings.
Our Growlers are also easy to clean. I little salt, vinegar and water swish it around, rinse and leave to dry. You do want to refrain from temperature extremes, which means if you have it in the refrigerator, please do not add a hot liquid into it and vice versa.
Lastly, these Growlers were created and made by local artists for a local company. We love local!
