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 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.
