Loose tea by the cup…..simple.
Our double-wall ceramic tumbler and integrated stainless steel infuser make brewing loose tea by the cup simple. The innovative double-wall construction keeps tea hot and the tumbler cozy to hold. Includes three of our Loose Tea Single Steeps. Brews a generous 12 oz cup and is dishwasher safe.
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!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
