I broke the lid to a steeper mug and as I was looking on the site, saw this little beauty. I love how simple it is, and the coaster is nice to assist in carrying it when full as it is gets pretty hot. The matte/rough finish on the outside is elegant and nice for grip as once you can handle the temperature of holding the mug. This is perfect to cup in your hands on a chilly morning to get your day going. This is the perfect size for me when I don't want/need a full cup of tea, and really just makes me happy to have a super sleek, simple but elegant cup to drink out of.
