About my three 12 ounce Timolinos and my two 16 ounce travel carry mugs from David’s tea.
I. adore. my. three. 12 ounce Timolinos. Adore them and use them daily. They are light, leakproof, and feel ever so good in my hands. They keep my teas hot forever.
And yes, I also have two David’s 16 ounce travel carry mugs. Which I also use regularly. I prefer the look and feel of the Timolinos, but I like the 16 oz size of the carry mugs.
I find that the travel carry mugs retain the scent and flavour of highly flavoured teas, so I am careful to not use them with highly perfumed teas, such as Elderflower Spritz for example. Because of this, I am also careful not to use the carry mugs with delicately flavoured teas as well.
I bought all three on different sales as David’s in discontinuing them due to now having their own design of the same product. However, the quality is such that I would still buy them at regular price without regrets.
I do not use the steeping baskets of either the Timolinos or the carry mugs. I prefer to steep in my Steeper and pour the ready tea into the containers. The openings are too narrow to use with David’s stainless steel steeper baskets.
