Not a fan. I would call this more a thermos than a travel mug. To me a travel mug is something you can drink out of on the go (walking, etc). I find this one too awkward to drink out of on the go, and more so to bring a hot drink to a place that you have a separate mug to pour into. Somewhere you’re going to sit down and relax to have your tea. It does keep the tea hot for a long time. Prefer the lock top which does the same thing, but much easier to drink out of.
