I loved the design and look of this cup but have found two things to be disappointed in. First, somehow water was able to get into the open area. It wasn't a problem but it didn't allow the glass to look clean. Second, this cup is not very durable. I hand wash my dishes and somehow this glass has cracked at the bottom, so much so that I am going to have to disguard it for safety. I'm not sure if I will replace this cup or not.
Wasn't really sure about this cup at first. Seemed to have a hole in the bottom, but learned that was normal. I have used it only once, but have enjoyed the feel and sturdiness. The cup doesn't get hot due to the double wall. The only reason I gave it a 4-star; there is no top when steeping tea. Would recommend to others.
I would have given it 5 stars if The glass was larger. I use the Kati cup to make tea in and this poom glass is much smaller. I would buy many of these if they held a minimum of 12 ounces. I use large cups to drink tea and this is too small. On the plus side it is sturdy and a great idea.
