First time using my new Timolino this morning and I am officially on Team Timolino! I had to drop my car off to be inspected and decided to bring my new little friend to try out. I actually steeped the tea in my IngenuiTea and then drained it into my Timolino so that it would be the perfect temperature to drink right away, and it was! It didn’t burn my tongue and actually stayed the most perfect temperature the whole time. It is still just perfect, over 2 hours later! I haven’t used the infuser basket, so I don’t know about that yet, but it seems just fine. I love the little secret space in the lid to hide more tea or even a teabag. I’m glad that I ended up keeping the 12 oz one, even though I really wanted to exchange it for one of the 16 oz ones. I like my tea with milk and sugar, so I think that I will probably just end up making all my tea in the morning at home and just keeping it in my Timolino all day. So I can see the beauty in having a couple of Timolinos full of hot wonderful tea to have throughout the day. I will definitely be purchasing a 16 oz, if not even another 12 oz once I see how many mugs I go through during my school day. Yayyyyy Timolino. I’ve been looking at these since forever, and so far am completely satisfied!
