The Perfect Tea Mug from DAVIDsTEA

The Perfect Tea Mug

So what makes this mug so perfect? Well, aside from being the perfect size and shape, it comes with a fine, stainless steel infuser that fits right into it. Plus it has a lid, the ultimate tea-steeping accessory. Lids keep all the aroma and heat in the cup, for an even better tea experience. And when you’re done steeping, just use the lid as a little plate for the infuser – how perfect is that? Dishwasher safe. Microwave safe, except for metal infuser.

355ml/12oz

1)Spoon tea into stainless steel infuser
2)Place infuser in perfect mug
3)Add hot water over tea leaves , cover cup with lid, and steep as usual
4)Remove infuser and empty contents after infusion, or use lid as a coaster

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.

I just got my first perfect mug today! I’m brewing some Bamboozled in it for its inaugural run while I make some tea cup candles (not in my perfect mug, obviously) to give to my grandma for her birthday. Check it out:

How cute are those whales? Major points for cuteness. The mug is a nice size too…about 12 oz I think. The infuser basket is HUGE, so there’s plenty of room for your tea to grow :-). I love this mug. The only slight detraction was that when I washed the infuser, the plastic bristles from my scrub brush kept catching in the holes. Not a big deal though.

Also, I’m dying to try out my new tea pot and cups, also from David’s Tea. Who wants to come over for some tea? :-)

I love these mugs! I received one as a gift (the paisley spring print) and it’s always the one I go for if it’s not in the dishwasher. They come in great patterns and I love the size.

I love this mug! I have it in the colour changing lobster and its adorable!! Perfect size for a cup of tea, very stable and I love the infuser. I also like that the cover it comes with also changes colour. I’m a huge sucker for cute things and this one is most definitely cute.

What an accurate name. This mug really is perfect. The right size, the infuser is amazing, having a lid makes the tea taste even better, and the designs are so nice. I have the elephant one and it’s my favourite mug.

The strainer on these is fantastic – sturdy, big enough to give any tea enough room to expand, and fine enough that even little rooibos bits don’t go through. The lids fit tightly, double as coasters for the strainers, and if you break one you can get a spare for only a couple dollars. The mugs are nice and thick, so if you preheat them they really hold the heat well.

In all honesty I have four of these – a regular size at my office job, a large perfect mug (16oz) at my uni job, and two at home (3/4 were gifts). I also have a Brewt, a whole pile of teapots and other brewing devices (hehe), and I don’t use them nearly as much as I use the perfect mugs.

A cautionary note: these last and wash quite well except for the matte finish ones, which scratch, stain, and absorb tastes super easily. Double check each design, too, as lots of the special ones (metallic or colour-changing) can’t be microwaved and shouldn’t be put in the dishwasher. Other than that they’re excellent.

I have a white Perfect Tea Mug from 2010 that I absolutely adore and that is in perfect condition. It is a wonderful tea mug and perfect for brewing just one cup of tea or for doing multiple infusions with. I love the lid that comes with it, it’s perfect for holding the strainer when your tea has finished brewing. Great product, especially for newcomers to loose leaf tea!
