Keeps my tea nice and hot for an extended period. Also appreciate that the lid acts acts as a coaster. Highly recommend to all tea lovers. The The little black tea trays are elegant and multi-purposeful. Very useful. The bamboo tray is just great for one person. The steeping cup, cream and sugar bowls, and a pastry fit perfectly on the tray.
I got this exact one for Christmas from my boyfriends sister and I set it down not paying attention and it fell right off the ledge and onto the floor and broke. I was rather upset that it was busted as I use it nearly every day, so I bought another. Great quality, just don’t be dumb like me and pay attention to where you set breakable things.
This is a beautiful tea cup and works very well for brewing tea when I am in my office. At home I have a Breville brewing system, but at the office I just have an electric kettle and then use this teacup infuser to brew my tea. The lid works great both for preventing tea from spilling on my desk when I'm done brewing, and for keeping my tea warm when used as a lid. Excellent quality system.
