I love this travel tea mug!! but I just took it out of the cupboard to use it today and it fell apart on me :(( I am so sad because it was great. I can’t even return it now because I bought it a few months back and don’t have the receipt. Clearly i need something sturdier. the netting in the top of the basket fell off because the seal broke. I didnt even drop it, i just took it out of the cupboard and opened it
I love this mug. The double mesh (a top over a basket) keeps every kind of tea I’ve thrown at it in the basket and not in my mouth. This keeps tea/water hot for 5+ hours. It keeps the water so hot that I often need to add cold water or else I burn my mouth with boiling water. The extra storage spot is okay. My tea usually gets a little bit damp but it’s a good as long as I don’t toss the container around. It hasn’t leaked on me yet. I’ve been very happy with this purchase.
My mug keeps getting worse. The glossy base under the matte finish is making a slow creep up from the bottom of the mug which makes it look like crap. There are now several scratches down to the metal and I have no idea how they got there. I have been traveling with it and keeping it in my backpack most of the time, which is fairly protected. It’s not like I have thrown it in the back of truck with a bunch of tools and scraps of engine and gone off roading. The secret compartment lid doesn’t want to stay on when I open the lid and there is any pressure built up. The last time I used it there was hot water spurting out the side and when I looked closely, I noticed that the edge of the metal rim now has a subtle flat spot in it totally ruining it. It must have tipped over or taken a tumble that I wasn’t aware of and now I have to see if I can bend the metal back and get it to non thermal geyser spraying mode. In the mean time I just take the top off and use the steeper in a regular mug since it is the only steeping device I am traveling with.
I’m not sure if I mentioned it before, but I bought the 16oz capacity and it has been throwing me off a little when it comes to how much tea to add. It isn’t something that can’t be overcome, but it takes a little more thought and adjustment to get the right ratio for the amount of water this mug holds and I’m finding myself overleafing when I’m steeping in a mug recently.
So if I were to redesign this with the knowledge I have know, I’d do a smaller size (none of the teas I have steeped have filled the entire basket of the larger version so I think the smaller basket would be fine), I’d like to see it in a brushed steel maybe with a silicone sleeve to protect the outside, I’d eliminate the secret compartment because it is more hassle than it is a good feature (or put it on the outside of the mug and not in the chamber that holds the water) and I wouldn’t have such high expectations of it possibly being the perfect travel mug.
The search for the perfect travel mug continues….
I needed a tea travelling mug that could hold in heat (or cold) well – so i decided to get DT’s new exclusive carry travel mug.
It indeed holds temperature very well for hours and hours, no matter what temperature it is outside. The strainer part is very cool – there is a basket as well as a filter under the lip – so you can drink using either or both. It is also leak proof!
The lip is on the fat side to drink from, so not that comfortable to drink especially if the tea was steeped with boiling water. I do have a small mouth, so maybe others will have a different experience.
The secret compartment to stash tea does not keep my tea dry. It does okay if the travelling mug is stationary, but if its rolling around in your bag the leaves will get wet.

Love love love this!!! The basket is roomy, and I love that I can actually smell the tea as I’m drinking it. The screen top is small enough that I had the handle top off in the car with a full mug and I had no problems with spillage. The only thing that could be better is that it can be tricky to get the infusion basket off when just pulling it out of the mug. Otherwise, I love this!
We picked this up yesterday as part of our Spring Teas splurge. We came home with 2 Nordic Mugs (color changing whales and tentacles!), 26 grams of all the new teas except Pom Tango, a coco chai rooibos chocolate bar, and this little beauty.
Seriously, I’ve just been sitting and cuddling it. I love the texture of the outside, smooth and rubbery. I had already brought a tea with me in my timolino, so my wife got the free cup in this thermos and she keeps playing with the lid XD. I primarily use this and the timolino for my cold brew teas, because it keeps them ice cold for hours on end. It’s amazing.
I had been hoping for a pink timolino with the spring line, but no such luck. However, i spotted this burgundy carry travel mug and fell in love. Love, with a capital L and a sigh.
I like the mesh strainer on top much better than the strainer on the timolino, and the secret compartment is bigger. Not that I ever use it (except for spy notes!).
All in all, this was a great purchase.
