I have used the infusion cup hundreds of times and I love it. It keeps the tea hot, but is not too hot to hold. The infusion basket does not drip or make a mess. After you infuse the tea leaves you can place the infusion cup on the cup lid. It is a very satisfying way to seep and drink tea. I have given these cups as gifts too. They make great gifts.
This pretty ceramic tea steeping cup and infuser work well together to make a good sized cup of tea. The cup is sturdy and sleek and can be used for hot or iced tea. The ceramic lid is notched to fit around the infuser handle to keep the tea hot while it is brewing. The cup gets very hot and hard to hold for a few minutes. I repurposed a rubbery slip on grip from a different cup which works well. Also, this cup would fit in my car’s cup holder so I could drink on the way to work if it had some kind of lid to keep it from spilling.
I LOVE my steeping cup and infuser. I had mine about two weeks and realized that my tea-loving sister and tea-loving friend each needed one for her birthday. They seem to be quite happy with theirs as well. They are absolutely beautiful, and they are SO handy for infusing tidily. Everything just fits together perfectly. You will love yours too!
