Jenaer Glas going away? Say it ain't so!

by Daniel S » Aug 17th, '05, 14:40

This was sent by email from adagio:
If you've had your eye on our beautiful glass teaware products, now is the time to act. Regarded as the world's finest glass teaware for over a century, Jenaer Glas will no longer be made. We invite you to consider these products before they're truly gone.
Is Jenaer as a company going away, or are they pulling out of just teapots? Or is adagio just stopping carrying them?

Thanks for the post.

Jenaer Glas as a company is, as the Germans say, "kaput."

It turns out they lost the keys to the warehouse!

Shatteringly,

Jenaer

Actually, Schott (Jenaer's parent company) will continue to operate. However, they have decided to discontinue their glassware business and thus have stopped making Jenaer products. :(

I've raked the internet and have found no comparable alternatives to Jenaer teapots, almost as if they had an original idea by making glass teapots with a smart and simple design. Any suggestions for when Jenaer is no longer an option?

Adagio Teas is in the process of developing a few glass teapots that will be very similar to Jenaer's old line. Hopefully we will have them available before we deplete our Jenaer supply.

Is this going to be an in-house production? Because from the way you worded it, that sounds to be the case. Awesome, nevertheless!

Not sure what you mean by in-house. Chris and I will not be sitting with straws in our mouths in front of a furnace and a bucket of sand :lol:

We are working with a company that specializes in glassware and are designing a number of teapots we plan on introducing soon.

Although, now that I think of it, the in-house solution sounds kind of fun.

Minor misunderstanding. I took "developing" to mean including the manufacturing, which I didn't wholly believe, but it was worth clarifying. Anyway, I'm glad you guys are dedicated enough to work with glass companies to produce replacements for Jenaer Glas' fine products. I think that says something about the company.

Manufacturing your own glass would be an interesting angle, but somehow I doubt its within Adagio's forte. To do that would make the company into the Apple Corp. of the tea drinking world, though. ;)

I can just see you now, Chris...
Sitting before the glory hole (yes, this is the technical term - I'm dating someone who is learning glassblowing) with a straw, adjusting your tie in the heat.

My, that could be a fun story.

jenaer glass

by Elaine Grosso » Dec 3rd, '05, 23:30

I'm a total newbie to this forum/site (or any other, for that matter) so am just bumbling around, trying to figure out how to work it . Bought a Jenaer minuet a few months back at a local (northern California) shop. Love it, and recently bought 2 more from Adagio, one for my 13-year-old grandson who was totally blown away by the magic of a display tea in that cup. I wanted to add my kudos to the product, but now hear this about the company going out of business. And about Adagio hopefully picking up the slack. But I still don't know how to add my input to particular products.
