I tipped the cup on my arm & got scalded. I figure user failure. So I’m looking at the cup & the design I think is flawed because the cup is tall but the bottom is so narrow that it tips easily. I bought 4 Kati cups; 3 for gifts but have decided to return all. Such a shame; they really are beautiful.
I didn't even add boiling water - just hot water, and the whole thing cracked rendering it completely useless. It's not like it was cold, the thing had been room temperature and it was 70 degrees in our house. Either way, that's the whole purpose of this thing, to pour hot water into it. What a total disappointment!!!
I bought the cup after owning the pot in the same line. The size is good for a single cup. The infuser basket is good for larger teas - for example the English breakfast. There is no leak through with this one for sure. I have some other teas that do allow some smaller residue through so I am selective about my use. Common sense wins the day.
