I ordrered this cup as for the hibiscus flower design. I already have an older version with, what I think are called cherry blossoms. Both do a good job of keeping the tea hot, but not my hand. And I love the updated infuser - very few, if any fines (depending on the tea). But wait, there's more: I discovered while rinsing the infuser, that, when held at the correct angle under the running faucet (and assuming a strong enough stream of water), it emits a tone. The 2 screens I have each emit a different tone. Wish I could upload a short video. TIP: I now have 2 of these screens, so I use one to steep and then use the other to squeeze the spent leaves. Works great. It would be nice if these came with maybe a plastic "fake" screen/insert to squeeze the tea from spent leaves for cleaning.
I love Kati cups as they are wonderful for brewing leaf tea, comfortable to hold And keep my drink hot for a long time. I collect Kati cups and always give them as gifts to my friends. This one is the most beautiful yet. The design and color combination are absolutely sensational, it looks even better in person. Something about the gorgeous mint green and florals straight from the garden meadow. Transports me to a summer garden every time I hold it in my hands. Just dreamy. I wish I could have a dress in this pattern too. Stunning.
I own several of the Kati mugs and each one is so very beautiful. This floral Kati is spectacular. I am an artist and I feel that the beautiful floral design and colors of this particular cup are really magnificent. I love drinking my tea from these mugs they have a great feel and are so very well made. Tea Forte does a great job at offering such quality products and delicious teas.
This is my second Kati cup and what a beautiful cup to enjoy the wonderful tea! The included infuser makes it easy to enjoy a cup of loose leaf tea. It also comes with a lid that keeps the tea warm while steeping and is great to sit the infuser on while enjoying the tea. The print on the cup is beautiful with the Hibiscus and peaches. I use it daily with a wonderful loose tea from Tea Forte!
I've had a Kati cup for a while now, this is my second one. It is so convenient to steep loose tea in the infuser that comes with it. There is also a lid that keeps it hot while waiting for the tea to steep. Im not usually in the kitchen while waiting, so having the lid to remove and place the infuser on is such a great idea. The only negative is that the cup is very hot to hold, so to carry it is uncomfortable. I have a wrap around cozy that I slide over it to make it easy to handle.
I really like the Kati cups but this is my favorite so far. The design is so pretty that you want to smell the flower on the cup, and with the tea it is like you can. This is a must have and I can't wait to show it off to my tea loving friends. The cups make for easy steeping and easy cleanup when you are finished.
When I saw the Fleur Kati cup, I immediately wanted a second one. It would make for a distinctive tea for two service because each person has their own idea about correct steep times. The blue green base color and naturalist fruit and flowers are the splash of color my place needed this spring.
