I recently received a lot of tea over the holidays. Most of which came in the form of samples. Shortly afterward, the wellness collection came out and this cup was just too cute. Its perfect for when I'm having a one cup day, and for when I want to try something new. The lid works as a tray for the infuser when you're done steeping. The well in the lid is deep enough that if you're not someone who drains the infuser, the excess doesn't spill over. The cup itself does get warmer than I'd like when brewing hotter teas, but never so hot that I can't hold it.
I was able to get my hands on this cup thinking that it would be a nice amenity to my tea-making setup. However, this is quickly starting to replace my infuser kettle. Super easy to use, looks cool, works well, and generally makes tea-making that much easier.
As any Tea Forte lover knows, they know any Kati cup starts with the idea of a large, insulated beautiful cup, an infuser(easy to clean)that can brew 12 oz. of the best loose tea(Tea Forte) and a lid that will hold the infuser or use to keep the tea warmer than an open cup. There are may different designs to choose from and make great gifts for friends especially when they favor the flavor of certain teas one shares with them. I have introduced many of my friends and they let me know what blends they like. It helps for the next time I want to buy them something, I buy them a canister of their favorite and a matching Kati cup. This Wellbeing Kati cup really brings the flavor of the feeling one is needing while admiring the beauty of this design while matching the mood. The Wellbeing design has become my favorite to use in the morning when I watch nature in my 500 acre backyard view near Yosemite. My friends are proof that BFFs can become TFFFs if one is willing to share the experience. Thank you Tea Forte for your excellent blends and beautiful tea ware.
