Very good quality cup and lid. Although the lid seems to be a bit loose, it holds fine once the cup is filled, with no leakages. Easy to clean and doesn't hold the smell of past drinks like the plastic mugs do, even after washing. My only little niggle is that with it being double layered, the capacity of the cup is smaller but that just means if you like a lot of tea/coffee you have to refill more often. Otherwise, a great mug and worth spending a little extra for.
Great protect however there's like a weird hole in the bottom?? Doesn't leak through it as it's sealed in the bottom of the cup but leaks from leftover water if you put it in the dishwasher so best to wash by hand
"This only keeps the tea warm for a couple of minutes (less than half an hour) but for me that is what I need. I can drink my tea warm or cold.
I take this to work with me so I have a cup of tea as soon as I get work, there have definitely been other flasks that have kept my tea warm but then it has been too hot for me to drink straight away. This is more for journeys and when you desire to take it somewhere to have a quick beverage and a normal cup will not do. (It would be good for meeting etc)
The design is beautiful although it has only been washed three times so I cannot comment on if the design fades or not.
Lid seems a bit flimsy and might need replacement at some point; the mug itself seems to be made from strong heavy china.
It came in a basic brown cardbox, no bubble wrap or padding-worth to keep in mind if bought as a gift.
It's a lovely mug and keeps my tea warm for a good while, it also minimises mess when I inadvertently knock it over on my desk - tiny spill from the mouth hole is nothing compared to a full cup-worth of hot beverage on my keyboard!
The one thing that could be improved is the top edge - the way it is designed makes it difficult to use with most hot water dispensers I tried - due to the angle of the mug itself and then curved out edge I cannot put it close enough and some of the water ends up spilling when filling it up.
