I love the cup design and how it keeps the tea warm. However, warning needs to be given not to hold the cup right after tea infusion. I found my cup too hot to hold on one side at the risk of burning my hand. It does keep the tea hot, but the tumbler was not cozy to hold.
I have several of these steeping cups, but this one is my favorite. The delicate colors make drinking out of this cup a pleasure as if I’m making tea time a special treat. Every steeping cup I own keeps the tea hot quite a while, so I can drink slowly and savor the flavors.
I love this cup! The design is pretty and has not faded despite many trips through the dishwasher. But what I really love is the design of the infuser-I use it for bagged teas as well, nice size and not flimsy. I also really like the lid, it's nice to have the last few sips of tea as hot as the first.
