Imhuli means 'family' in the isiNdebele language from Matebeleland, west of Zimbabwe. It describes the feeling we experience when we smell, taste and drink with our family, both distant and close. This special tea cup is named after the IMHULI Glassware Family Member #5, MZALA Cup. OK, every one has a special cousin in their lives.... It is a combination between a cup and teapot...Each teapot is named after a family member in isiXhosa language from Eastern and Western Cape Provinces of South Africa. We trust each teapot carries its own unique energy, reflected in its name and style. When we invite others to drink tea with us, it is like extending our family.
