What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
October 29, 2012
This cup is wonderful. I bought one to try it out, then came back and bought 3 more. They have held up well for a year of frequent use. I love the mesh basket, which also fits well in my teapot. The lid keeps the heat in while brewing, and holds basket so the leaves come out at the proper time, but I don't have to run back to the kitchen immediately to get rid of the wet leaves. I broke one dropping it on the tile floor, so I'm back for more!
Lasts and is Nice to Look At

I was surprised at what some of the reviewers wrote. I have had my glasses a couple of years now, and they have held-up just fine! Yes, I am careful with them, but they get the same "abuse" as all my other glassware. They are cleaned (glasses, lids and infuser) in the top rack of the dishwasher. I think they feel comfortable to hold and I don't find them slippery in the least. Whenever guests drink from these, I always get compliments. The tea stays very warm for much longer (much longer!) than a regular teacup - especially when the lid is used. I'm writing this review because I came to this site to order two more! When I saw the negative reviews, I had to chime in.
Quick and Easy

Works like a charm. The quickest way to make a cuppa there is.

After reading the reviews, I decided to take a chance on this cup as it is pretty and the basket is far reaching. It is so slippery in your hand you feel as though you will drop it. The glass is not functionally in a sense it is so thin I thought I would shatter it when sitting it down.
Beautiful but fragile

Beautiful design. I love watching my tea blooming within the clear walls. Also, the insulated design prevents the cup from being too hot to handle. However, it is ever so fragile. Within 2 weeks of ownership, my mother accidently tapped it against another teacup and it shattered into pieces and even some fine powder. Completely our fault, mind you, but I find it give high praise to servingware made of glass so thin that even Christmas ornaments would be considered more durable by comparison.
