Of course, per se, it's not a glass. It's a bamboo made as drinking material. Long time ago when glass and metal did not occupy the living of modern civilizations the man invented the bamboo as drinking material. While trekking the other day I found these hanging in the woods. When I asked the guide he told me its used for drinking. Which means rhis thing is still used inthe villages. Do you mind to drink in bamboo glass?

I don't mind to drink in that glass if the glass is clean enough. I have seen the glasses made by clay is popular in between and disappear the same way.

We had gone to see a bird show in Singapore and there they served us pineapple juice in a bamboo glass which I thought was quite unique.

I will drink if it is clean! But if you are in a place where there is no drinking glass or any vessel for holding water to drink, then bamboo is the best option.

I would give it a try. It seems like it would add a subtle flavor to the liquids, does it?

I do not mind drinking in bamboo glass for one time, because I am afraid that it will get molds for longer usage
