I love these cups. I had received one several years ago as a gift and have been wanting to purchase more. They are beautiful and keep the tea warm for quite a while.
holds heat well cup stays cool
We purchased three of these cups for Christmas gifts and love them so much that I bought two more as gifts! Absolutely perfect for a great cuppa tea! (If you want a handle on your cup/mug these are not for you.) As a side note, when this purchase arrived, one of the cups was broken. I called customer service and within 3 days had a replacement cup in my home. I love this company; their products are the best!
This year a special package of teas and this beautiful cup, instead of the sweets. It was a winner!
I purchased several of these during the holidays, a couple for me and a couple for gifts. I truly love them and almost always choose one of these cups rather than a traditional mug. I love the designs and how the cup feels in my hand. The infuser works beautifully and I'm very happy to have made these purchases.
I purchased the Lotus steeping cup and it is very nice. I had a hard time choosing which cup to get since they all are lovely. I may have to get another one or two. It is a nice sturdy cup but it does get hot when used so make sure you are aware. I wish they had handles on them to help with the heat but I still love the cup.
The Lotus Kati Steeping Cup is so beautiful, and steeps a perfect cup of tea! The double insulation keeps it piping hot, and the smooth finish of the cup makes the sipping process simply delightful! I use this particular cup for my black teas. 6 minutes seems to be the perfect steeping time! Not sure what I would do without my Kati cups!
This cup is useful and cute!!! I am using it daily. I have one for home and one for office! Perfect for tea lovers!
Good for any time cup of tea
I've got the lotus, poppy, and cherry blossom cups they are super cute and work amazingly for my tea
It keeps your tea warm, and your hand cool. I use mine daily, and am always tempted by the new designs.
I adore this cup...not only functional, but also pretty! Contibutes to my already enjoyable tea drinking experience-think I'll go make a cup right now!
Eye appeal and easy steeping for loose tea make this a winner.
I absolutely love this infuser. Not only is it beautiful but it keeps my tea warm long enough for me to finish my morning tea. I also like the weight of the cup. It's sturdy and even though it gets warm, it doesn't get too hot that it's too much to hold. I went back and ordered another in a different pattern.
Very nice design, easy to wash. I take it back and forth between home and work and it's been sturdy.
I bought the cup after owning the pot in the same line. The size is good for a single cup. The infuser basket is good for larger teas - for example the English breakfast. There is no leak through with this one for sure. I have some other teas that do allow some smaller residue through so I am selective about my use. Common sense wins the day.
Great tea mug
I bought three to give as gifts, and the recipients love them. It doesn't seem to be safe for use in the car; as other reviewers have mentioned, the lid is not fastened to the cup. I prefer glass or ceramic though and would rather a mug used for travel be made of a material that isn't prone to breaking. I can't wait to get one of my own!
I like this design and LOVE these cups
I absolutely love this cup! I originally had one bought for me as a Christmas gift but sadly it fell and broke. I was so upset. Thankfully you still sell them and in so many beautiful designs. I originally had to birch trees design but I already have the lotus teapot and thought it would be nice to have a matching cup. I am still going to get another birch tree one though. I will finish this how I started...I absolutely love this cup!
Well made, good infuser. Would be nice if it had a handle since the outside does get too hot to hold for some of us.
Very nicely made cup.
Sipping out of this cup right now. I love the improved basket; it's sturdier, deeper, and has finer holes. The lid doubles as a saucer, and keeps the tea nice and hot. I gifted a mug to my mom and grandmom for Christmas, and they've been enjoying them as well.
This was a gift for my friend who appreciates Asian art and philosophy. She LOVED the gift and called it both elegant and thoughtful. More than that...totally functional as a workplace seeping cup with lid.
I used to be a waitress and the company I worked for had Tea Forte on the menu. Years later, this awesome cup helped me find a convenient way to enjoy all of the Tea Forte flavors
Love all the looks and design. It makes a great cup of tea. Also would make a great present!
I adore the Kati mugs! It makes it super easy to steep loose tea, and I love how the lid keeps the tea extra hot... It seems almost as though it allows for a more flavorful cup!
Love this cup with infuser!! It holds about 1 1/2 cups of water..I do wish it was a little larger. But it's very convenient. I'm not a tea expert nor a water lover so the ease of using this steeping cup enables me to drink more fluids, a win-win!!
Love the design and function.
I love the lid. It keeps my tea hot long after brewing. I also like that I can brew loose leaf tea with the infuser. I use everyday.
A gift to me which I love so much I bought three more for friends. We have all enjoyed it so much!
I love this Steeping Cup & Infuser so much I bought a second one for when friends visit.
I love this cup. I have it in 3 different colors. It is wonderful when I have company and every wants a different tea.
I have more than one Kati cup myself and purchased the lotus design as a Christmas gift to go along with the Lotus Loose Tea. The recipient loved it and is really enjoying the delicious Mountain Oolong Tea. I introduced her to the Kati cup with the holiday design along with the loose tea with a gift the previous year. She continues to enjoy her tea in these wonderfully designed Steeping Cups and has commented that she can't believe how your loose teas are so flavorful and different than anything she has used before.
It's great only downfall is if the water is too hot the cup is very hot to touch
Easy to use.
I recently ordered the KATI Steeping Cup & Infuser lotus. I purchased two, one for a gift and one for myself. I loved the cup not only for its design, but for its ability to keep my tea warm for an extended period of time. You can't go wrong with this cup and infuser.
I love these beautiful cups. I'm on my 2nd cup. I got a great deal around black Friday.
Use it every day
Great gift option!
Only one thing missing - a handle would make this the perfect tea cup!
Love the cup. I gave it as a gift with the teapot, poom, tea chest with assorted teas and a box of pumpkin spice tea. She absolutely love everything. The lotus design was beautiful and fits in with her yoga lifestyle. Also the elegant tea bags are lovely. Plus the tea tastes GREAT! Thank You
I ordered 3 of these cups. They're so pretty and great to steep loose tea - love them! Great gifts too.
I even of these KATI Steeping Cups. I love them. I can brew different teas simultaneously and this is helpful since my husband usually drinks black teas and I like green teas. The steeping basket works well and is easily cleaned. The cups can be put in the dishwasher. They keep your tea warm for a long time. I broke a lid on one and I see that replacements are available, that's good news.
Loved the look of this cup and also the infuser. But, it was just too hot to handle! Also was too slippery to handle when my husband was helping with the dishes. A handle would have helped there to. Oh well, the cup is broken, but the infuser can still be of use.
A nice cup and the right size for the amount of tea I drink.
This is a lovely kati cup but it's the new infuser basket that makes it totally worth the extra cost. It really helps keep even fine herbal tea leaves out of the finished tea. It also seems to rinse clean a bit more easily. Perfect cup for spring.
