Coffee and Tea Drinks Exposed In Clear French Picardie Tumblers

New for 4th qtr 2009

New Castle, DE - August 2009 -- Coffee and tea lovers can now take their beverages out of hiding and enjoy them in crystal clear, gently faceted, French Duralex Picardie glassware. The Picardie tumblers enhance the experience of a steaming or a chilled coffee, espresso, cappuccino or latte. Beverages taste better when the mellow and rich colors of the coffee, cream and liquors blend together with the aroma and taste of a French Roast or a Chai Tea or other favorite.

The Picardie glasses have just arrived back in America. Picardie glasses are recognized throughout France, and remain the icon of French taverns, bistros and inns, as all Frenchmen and Frenchwomen grew up with Picardie glasses in their homes, school cafeterias and restaurants. They are used for coffee, wine and as all-purpose drinking glasses. Not only is the shape a classic design, they fit in the hand beautifully and easily. They are extremely tough and durable, and with even a little bit of care will last for decades without breaking or chipping. Duralex products go in the dishwasher and because of their high quality, maintain a brand-new appearance for years. The Picardie glasses are also microwave safe.

The tempered glass is non-porous so it does not retain odors, scratch or stain. There are 8 sizes ranging from 3.25 ounces to nearly 17 ounces.

Duralex International SAS has been manufacturing drinking glasses in France for more then 80 years and was the inventor of tempered glass in 1939. It is the only glass manufacturing company that manufacturers all of its products in France. The Picardie tumbler, like all Duralex products are manufactured in La Chapelle-Saint-Mesmin near Orleans, France.
