Tea steeps efficiently in this lovely, personal tea cup. The infuser is large and sturdy and the cup has a indentation for easy drinking. I like the poppies and feeling the warmth of holding this large cup of tea in my hand. I bought my first Kati cup at Canyon Ranch and was looking out for another to add to my collection. This one is "the bomb."
I got the tea cups for honey and she loves them. However, my daughter and granddaughter have really loved using them as well. So much so that they are alwase dirty and needing to be washed. There new storage space is the dishwasher. Guess I need to get one for me.
I am only giving this four stars because although it keeps your tea nice and hot, it is top heavy and easily tips over. I do my dishes by hand and have broken many cups while washing them. I keep buying them when they are on sale because they make a great cup of tea vowing to be more careful.
Keeps my tea nice and hot. It is so well insulated that the outside it never hot. I thought I would miss a handle, but not even a little. The first Kati mug I had was a gift, and I was so disappointed when someone broke it by accident. I had to get another as soon as possible.
I own at least 7 various kati cups for my family of avid tea drinkers. I love the size, ease of use and design options of the cups. The new strainers are fantastic...i brew loose leaf tea and herbal coffee in these all the time. I actually bought this one for a gift for a fellow tea lover along with some single seeps. Trust me...you'll love these cups.
