Some like it hot, some like it cold: Moderna double-wall thermo glasses by Ozeri

My collection of cups, mugs and other drinking vessels has a new addition - a set of four beautiful Moderna double-wall thermo glasses from Ozeri. I always fancied having a set of thermo glasses for serving hot drinks, as it reminds me of the long train journeys in Russia. The trip from my hometown to Moscow would take 22 hours by train, and in those 22 hours you should expect to be served hot tea at least 3 times a day (and of course, you can top it up as many times as you like through the day). The tea comes in a glass which is sitting in a metal holder with a handle. And though Moderna glasses look completely different, they made me think of long chats over a cup of tea on the Russian train.

What does Ozeri say about their own product?
Moderna glasses are" made of durable, heat resistant, mouth-blown borosilicate glass of the finest quality, the MODERNA belongs to the Ozeri Artisan Series of award-winning handcrafted drinkware. Borosilicate glass is stronger than common glass, shatter-resistant, and with the MODERNA's double-walled design, it offers the ultimate insulation to maintain drinks at their ideal temperature.
The MODERNA's opposing mouth-blown dimples make for a natural and effortless grip. Each glass is made to keep your hands cool even with your hottest drinks, and free of condensation with your chilled beverages. The patent-pending MODERNA is great for coffee, cappuccinos, hot or iced teas, cocktails, frozen beverages and much more. Each set contains four handmade 8 oz glasses designed for lifetime use. The MODERNA glasses are completely dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe, and ship in an elegantly printed and carefully packaged box with a 1 year warranty."

What did we think about the product?
First of all, the glasses do look very durable (a must in a house with two kids who are not very careful handling the kitchen things).
Love the cute dimples on the sides. The design is very elegant, modern-looking and boasts the combination of two sides: it is practical and stylish at the same time.

I was amazed at how cool the glass feels when you pour the hot tea in it. The double walls protect your hands from the heat, but keep the drink at the right temperature.
Perfect for a hot drink (see the very top photo, with hot chai in a glass).
And as perfect for a cold drink with ice (though I haven't yet tried to put them in the freezer, but I have an idea of making the individual ice cream portions, using the glasses)

Great for any beverage of your choice. I can see myself using these glasses extensively for all sorts of drinks: tea, coffee, latte, chai, iced tea, cordial, juice or an alcoholic cocktail if that's what you fancy.

You will be able to  find Moderna double-wall thermo glasses by Ozeri and other products by Ozeri on amazon.

P.S. I received these glasses for the purpose of reviewing, all opinions are mine.
