This is a beautiful cup and I love the strainer and the lid to help steep the tea. The only problem is that, without a handle, the mug itself is almost too hot to hold on to while sipping. Wouldn't order another one but would definitely order from Tea Forte again. Quality products.
It's the best "tea cup" I own! The thermal feature is great and keeps my tea warm for a longer period of time. The volume is perfect. The basket is so convenient to infuse loose leaf tea and easy to clean. The lid makes a wonderful "plate" to hold the infuser or a spoon. It also keeps my tea warm. I have started a collection of these fabulous mugs!
