“All right, here we are.”
You turned your head at the sound of Danny’s voice as he returned, carrying… well, not an ordinary mug, that was for sure. He held a saucer, cup, and lid, all made from perfectly clear glass with steaming water contained inside. Danny set down a second cup beside it, much smaller and with a curved handle.
Danny lifted the lid and releasing the steam into the air.
“What’s that?” you asked, curious despite yourself. You had never seen a pot like that before, and it almost reminded you of a mortar bowl.
“It’s a gaiwan, used for steeping tea in a more traditional way.”
“Hold out your hand.”
The look on his face was of barely suppressed delight, his lips pressed into a line that failed to hide his smile. Your other friend was not nearly as amused.
“Can you not be weird for one evening?”
Danny ignored the verbal jab and focused on you, blue eyes alight as he said, “Trust me. You’ll like this.”
