This was a present. It’s a pretty decent mug for general teas. I do not like using this for green teas (as the shape is not ideal for good infusion) but for herbal teas it is pretty decent imo. Especially if you’re looking for something quick and convenient.
Today I had a terrible cold and felt generally sick and grumpy. I certainly didn’t want to go through the whole deal of brewing tea in a pot with a proper and careful method. I just wanted to drink my ginger tea and go to bed. So I broke out the cup. It took 5 mins (all of which was steeping time), my tea stayed hot for about a good 15 mins and the ginger-green rooibos blend made me feel a thousand times better.
This teacup’s good to have around for times like this. But if you are looking for great infusion results this is not the cup for you.
