Suckered (or inspired?) by the packaging. You've seen the pomegranate juice in its hourglass-shaped bottle. This is the tea version of that, in what POM's website calls a "keepsake glass." We were decidedly taken in by the urge to repurpose it.
The tall tumbler that sits nicely in the hand and evokes juleps and grandmothers and hot days.
We tried it out as a pencil holder, a vase and a kitchen-themed votive holder (top, with lentils).
Our efforts almost made choking down the bitter drink worth it (sorry, but bleh).
