A cup for the champagne of teas

Darjeeling has been called the champagne of teas and puerh the wine of teas, so what better cup to serve them in than one that looks like a wine glass. I saw these for the first time last year at the gift shop in the Centre Georges Pompidou. I’m sure if you’re crafty and have the right tools you could make them yourself, but I’m a little wary of chopping a glass in half and soldering it onto the bottom of a tea cup. If you know of an easy way to recreate these without risking embedded glass shards, cuts and burns, let me know.
