Naba Tea Tiffin

The Naba Tea Tiffin is a captivating collection of four objects with pure copper lids coated in terracotta powder, paying homage to the ancient city of Hegra. Inspired by Hegra’s significance as a Hajj route station, the set elegantly combines India’s Lota container and Nabataean pottery’s beak spout. The set comes with two sizes of tea and milk jugs, complemented by delightful sugar and cookie bowls that elevate your tea experience with an AlUla inspired rendition.
