I like the beauty of the cup and the ease of making the tea. The strainer is easy to clean. I need to use pot holders to hold the cup at first as the cup is very hot. I didn't expect the cup to be that hot. Any ideas for keeping the beauty of the cup and something to make it able to be held? I would give this 4.5 stars!
I have one and just ordered one for my best friend. It is so well made and I just love the whole aspect of steeping loose tea in this beautiful cup and relaxing. It is never too hot to hold. The strainer is so sturdy and well made. I suggest this as a perfect gift with tea for anyone. Or just for yourself!
