The Prickly Pear Cup

The Prickly Pear Tea Cup shape is inspired by the fruit from a prickly pear cactus & the natural landscapes of the Sonoran Desert. A small mug shaped tea cup with handle recommended for espresso or tea.

These masterpieces are hand carved from sustainable jujube wood, a strong, lightweight, & fast growing wood. Jujube trees are considered sustainable due to how fast they regrow. (We do not remove the roots.)

We then treat them with a non-toxic tree lacquer that protects & accentuates the gorgeous grain with a wet appearing effect.

Wood insulates & protects your hand from hot liquids and it's 3x's lighter than ceramic or glass.

(Many of our older customers with arthritis remark about how these mugs are lighter full than their ceramic mugs empty.)

Enjoy your favorite brew, entertain guests, or reconnect with yourself. Great for any daily use!

A true work of art combining utility and aesthetic appeal. A wonderful addition to your coffee mug or tea cup collection.

Made with natural Jujube wood and coated with a natural and food safe tree lacquer that protects the finish and keeps the wood clean from stains.

Completely safe and functional to drink coffee and other beverages from.

To ensure that your mug stays in good condition for years to come, please follow these instructions:

1. There may be a subtle scent of the tree lacquer initially. We recommend soaking and rinsing the mug in hot water for 5 minutes before initial use.

2. Do NOT microwave or use the dishwasher. We recommend hand-washing with regular soap and air drying.

3. Occasionally apply a mineral oil of your choice to prolong life.

4. Enjoy with love. ❤️

Saguaro Stein

LOVE it. Wood it be possible to make one about a 1/3 larger. I already own two regular cups and the big mug. The saguaro Stein design without handles is perfect, but would really like the same design in a a little larger version.


We love them!

Cute, but too small for practical use

Haven’t used because of its tiny size, nor do I know a use for it. Hold paper clips maybe. Lovely but useless to me.

Very nice looking cup.

Very nice cup. Cup is made nice and seems sturdy. It is a little smaller than I thought it would be.
