Product Review:

I’d like to introduce you to my favorite new tea accessory!  The Kati Loose Tea System!  It has officially replaced my favorite tea mug.  I love this cup!

OK, so this is actually a “tumbler.”  But, let’s not get lost on semantics.  I love this cup!  Let me tell you why…

I love the shape of this cup, and how well it fits in my hands.  Because it does not have a handle, I cup my hands around the tumbler and experience the warmth from the tea.  And because it has a double wall construction, the sides of the cup are warm but not too hot.  This is a very important “selling point” for me, because my hands always seem to be cold.  I like that I can cup my hands around the tumbler and enjoy the warmth without burning myself!

The double wall construction also insulates the cup so that the tea stays warmer longer.  Another thing that helps to keep the tea warm is the lid!

The infuser is also a nice size.  I found that there was enough room to allow the tea leaves to expand fully without being overcrowded.  Generally, an infuser is something I don’t use because they aren’t large enough to accommodate the tea leaves properly, but, this one is just right.

Finally, I love the leaf design on the cup.  Sure, we’re just talking aesthetics here, and it has really very little to do with the tea inside the cup, but, it has a lot to do with my enthusiasm toward the cup.  I enjoy using a cup that makes me happy, and this cup (err… tumbler) makes me very happy!
