Here is a slightly different review for you all! I love teaware, almost as much as I love tea.
A Review of Tea Forte's Cafe Cup
I was excited for the opportunity to review this cup, as I had seen it

In reviewing Tea Forte's Cafe Cup, I decided to create a
simple pros and cons list. This is not a complete list by any means,
merely a list of the things which most stood out to me.
-Comes with a lid, to hold the heat in while steeping.
-The lid keeps your tea hot, even when you leave it for some time.
-The cup is quite pretty, in a simplistic way.
-The hole in the lid is perfect for the tag and string from the tea bag (specifically those by Tea Forte).
-The construction of the cup is such that, because of the
heat emanating through the walls, it is necessary to hold it by the
-The size of the cup in comparison to the handle makes
for a slightly awkward or unwieldy experience when lifting a full cup,
especially because it seems the handle is not meant to be held with more

-The lid gets quite hot while steeping tea, which can be problematic when you try to remove it to drink.
biggest improvement I think could be made to this product is if it came
with a saucer, to catch any drips, and provide a resting place for the
hot tea cup, so that items under the tea cup are not in danger of being
damaged by the heat.
Overall, it is a very nice cup, and the wooden box it comes in makes for a very nice gift presentation.
The Tea Forte Cafe Cup can be purchased from their website, here.
