Deceiving Picture
Purchased

While the picture makes the top look like a lid, it is just a holder for the actual tea infuser insert. It looks like better quality in the picture. I am a little disappointed at how cheap it looks in person.

A little disappointed :(
Purchased

When I read that there's a lid I assumed it covered the whole cup and not just the infuser. And the holes on the bottom of the filter are a bit large so it doesn't strain as much as I'd like. I figured the bottom of the strainer would be mesh but it isn't. It's plastic with toothpick sized holes. I'm a little sad...I expected more.

Not what I thought
Purchased

I got this tea set with some of my points. I thought by the picture that the mug had a lid for the mug which was the whole point of why I got it. I liked the idea of being able to get this for free and being able to travel with it but of course thats not the case. After all that, I do really like the hands free defuser.

Kinda clunky
Purchased

The idea behind this cup is great; however, all the parts are kind of cumbersome and odd. Too many parts to keep up with.

great mug, inconsistent pricing
Purchased

The infuser is really great for smaller teas. I love that it has a lid to put in to prevent messes.

I bought this one week ago to try it out before buying another one to gift. Now that I have tried it out the price has gone up and I don't understand why.

Design a little disappointing
Purchased

I ordered this to make single-serving cups of chrysanthemum tea. (I have a mesh ball tea infuser for loose leaf teas, but the flowers are too large for it.) While this does the trick, I was disappointed that the cap doesn't cover the entire top of the cup. As such, some of the heat of the water is lost while the flowers are steeping.

Great for loose tea
Purchased

I drank a lot of loose tea this winter and this is perfect for steeping the tea leaves and then removing them before they become bitter. I really enjoy this set but I do wish it was a bit bigger, maybe 16 or 20 ounces.

Very nice way to drink loose leaf tea alone
Purchased

Ergonomic design, well made. Perfect if you know you just want one cup of tea. Also available in a number of colors.

Tea for One
Purchased

I like the idea of Tea for One. I didn't really need the clear mug as I have so many mugs. I bought this for the tea strainer. It fits most mugs. It brews loose tea well and washes easily by hand. This would make a great gift for a tea lover along with some unusal teas.
