The cup was heavier than I expected and the strainer is sometimes hard to clean but apart from that I think it's a really convenient place to steep my loose tea. I would recommend this for those of you who need a steeping cup at home. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this for those of you wishing to transport it out and about as the lid/strainer/cup combo isn't attached by any way, it also isn't spill proof so it runs the risk of leaking in your car/bag/wherever else you might place it. That being said, I think this is a beautiful cup to have in your study table or office. It's a real eye catcher.
The design is adorable. I work in the medical field and decided to snag this up for at home use. The steeper goes pretty far down into the cup, so you know your tea is brewing properly. I read reviews on multiple other brands before deciding to go with this brand and a lot of the other brands stated the items were “cute, but not functional.” With this you get cute and functional. Unfortunately there’s no handle which constantly makes me nervous my cup is going to slip and break when my two year old is running around my ankles or grabs it from the table. The lid already broke in the first week when my husband accidentally swiped it off the countertop. Oops! Likely better for the less hectic household and those with sturdy grip.
I bought two of the Kati Steeping Cups! One for myself and one for my significant other. We love the size, which gives us a nice boost in the morning or a great way to sip an herbal tea right before bed. Amazing quality! (They are heavy but feel sturdy).
