I love this cup. I have had several loose tea travel cups and this one is great for my desk. It keeps the tea hot without keepig it so hot it burns your mouth. THe tea basket is easy to handle and has smll enough holes to allow the tea to steep properly without leaving large remnants of tea.
This was a gift. I am not a hot tea drinker. I follow the directions - boil my water, add tea bag. I steep it. After it cools I refridgerate the tumbler. I grab it in the morning and have refreshing ice tea on my commute. Love it. Great quality.
